Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Architecture

Michael Fowler Center


From wikipedia

The Michael Fowler Centre is a concert hall and convention centre in Wellington, New Zealand. It was constructed on reclaimed land next to Civic Square, and is the pre-eminent concert site in central Wellington.

Commissioned in 1975, building began in 1980; the centre officially opened on September 16, 1983. It was designed by Miles Warren and Maurice Mahoney of Warren and Mahoney, with acoustic assistance from Professor A. Harold Marshall, formerly the Head of Auckland University’s Acoustics Research Centre

Thursday’s Special: Park

Kelburn Park


This view of Wellington, with the cable car in the foreground and Kelburn Park in the mid ground, is somewhere between iconic and a cliche.

For me it also brings about some feelings of nostalgia – Kelburn Park was my team’s home ground when I played two seasons of social soccer in my late twenties.

Taken at lunchtime today as a contribution to Paula’s Thursday Special with the theme of Park.

Travel Theme: Camping

Lucky Escape


In 2005 Peter and I did the NSW Big Ride – a week long fully supported ride in Australia.  The first night’s pre camping at Taree was characterised by a big storm which proved a pretty good test of everybody’s tent pitching skill.

It also bought down this light stand/power pole – which fortunately came down precisely between these two tents – at least one of which I think was occupied at the time.
