St Matthew's Anglican church, Dunedin, New Zealand.
A thriving inner city church.
It's a long time since I have been inside and I believe
quite a few changes have been made.
I'd love to have a look again sometime,
unfortunately it was closed when we were there.
Not so grand any more. I think it is a shame as it would be a great backpackers. But she's all boarded up and dilapidated and looks very unloved. Right above Caroline Bay which is a great attraction in the summer.
I remember staying here many years ago with my husband. We were told our room was right at the top, just keep going up until you can't go any further. We did. We ended up on the roof under the dome at the left corner of the hotel. Fully air conditioned, lovely view over the bay, but no windows, no bed, no anything! We had gone through a door that was supposed to be locked and wasn't. We did find our room eventually but I think we ended up down at reception again first.
Until this month I didn't know there was such a thing as found still life so I don't know whether these are decent examples or not. But I thought I'd show them to you anyway. I like the middle one best when I think I was trying to work out how to use the macro setting.
Taken at different times throughout the year while I was out playing with my camera.
We had to travel south for a day recently and my husband thought we could stop at Gore for a break. It bills itself as the 'three horse town' so we decided to stop and take a look at the horses. As you can see, they are not real, although they are full size. Neither are there only three of them.
We rather enjoyed this use of an old cart wheel and old tractor seats at the site.
