While Ben was on Staycation...


State Cinema turned yellow. Ben's been on staycation for the last week and a half and we noticed for the first time yesterday on our way to the PO. I think the color suits the Art Deco style. Do you like it? 

I can't remember if this was the last time, but I posted another facelift in 2008

Brigadoon Island?

We've been having uninspiring weather of late. Tuesday, we had fog, but not just white morning fog. At one point, in town, one street was clear and the next was covered in dark grey fog, so strange I even rang Ben to ask if there was fire around his work two blocks from where I was. Nope, just patchy fog.

In August 2006, we started Nelson Daily Photo after discovering Beirut Daily Photo that day. Our thoughts are with folks in that beautiful city.

Red-ish Carpet to The Palace Backpackers

Friday was cold but sunny, and one could not walk past and not see these steps leading up to The Palace on Rutherford Street, not only because the carpet (?) was bright and cheerful but also because we have steps of rough concrete with which we could do something similar.

Funny how I've seen gazillion interesting things done with steps around the world on the Internet and yet it took something local, and in real life, to realize, hey, maybe...

Not Bad for a Point-and-Shoot?

This guy is pretty and big, but also mean and chases other tuis away from this tree, and greedy as it didn't even take a break while Ben stomped not two meters away to and from the compost bin, making a lot of noise with the lid.
