Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Old and New Buildings in Wellington

dsc_046101x

Good morning from a very sunny day here in Hastings.

Last Saturday I wandered around Lambton Quay and the Parliament buildings.  Of all the times I have visited Wellington I had never being around our Parliament buildings. The weather was perfect as you can see so I had a ball.

First up I love the contrast between the old Turnball House, the birthplace of our national library nestled among the modern buildings.

And the older Parliament House built in 1918, but never really completed.

I must apologise if I don’t visit you all today.  Our Internet is mega slow.

One Word Photo Challenge: Koru

dsc_082201x

Good morning from a cool sunny day here in Hastings.

This week Jennifer has given us the word ‘depth’.  For my photo I am showing depth of field, while there is hidden depth to this Koru –

The koru, which is often used in Māori art as a symbol of creation, is based on the shape of an unfurling fern frond. Its circular shape conveys the idea of perpetual movement, and its inward coil suggests a return to the point of origin. The koru therefore symbolises the way in which life both changes and stays the same.
