Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Street Art in Car Parks in Wellington

Wellington Car Parks-

Good morning from a cooler autumn day here in Hastings. Yes, autumn is coming – slowly.

Wellington was so colourful. My camera was in constant use.  There was such a contrast in architectural styles – early 20th century, Art Deco, 60’s brick and concrete boxes and modern glass buildings.  There was street art everywhere.  Including this building on a car park close to where my daughter lives.  The car park was empty every time I went past.  I don’t know why. I don’t even know what this building is.

Great for  Cee Neuner‘s fun challenge this week.

One Word Photo Challenge: Hospital Blankets

Hospital Blankets-

Good morning from a warm Hastings day.  Yes I am back from Wellington.  I had a fabulous time with my daughter and her flatmate.  Lots of laughter, and lots of walking – phew.  But more importantly, lots of new photos – 99% non flowers.  Needed a break from my florals.

Anyway we went to Te Papa, our national museum.  Peter Jackson and Weta Workshops has put on this big display showing our involvement at Gallipoli.  It was very sobering and emotional to go through.  As an ex-nurse I was interested in this hospital ship and the role that nurses played in looking after our wounded soldiers.

This photo is a mock up of an hospital ship showing how the men were looked after in different levels according to rank.

This is for Jennifer Nichole Wells‘s prompt this week, which is blankets – lots of hospital blankets here.

I will catch up with everyone at some point but have lots to do.
