Mystery Machine in Woolston

September 2, 2014

A mystery machine appeared in Woolston a few weeks back – I’ve been meaning to stop by and photograph it. Not sure what it does, kind of looks like a giant sewing machine to me (I’m sure it’s not). It has Perkins Maker Manchester on the side of it. Also looks a little steampunkish!

Spring has Sprung!

September 1, 2014

DSC07029

I went for a walk in the gardens / Hagley Park to take photos of the daffodils and noticed that my favourite blossom tree in the gardens is nearly in full bloom – making for a beautiful combination of blossom tree and daffodils. Spring is certainly here – though there is the lack of the very verdant green of mid-spring (things are still a little bare). Beautiful none-the-less.

A walk through the Lyttelton Tunnel

August 31, 2014

The Lyttelton tunnel opened 50 years ago, so to celebrate, they closed the tunnel to vehicles for several hours this morning and invited people to walk and cycle through the tunnel. A big crowd turned up and it was fascinating watching the different types of bikes, scooters and skate boards going through. I walked both ways and it wasn’t until I was out of the tunnel that I realised just how loud it was in there.

Glass going in on new Gloucester Street Building

This building is on the corner of Durham and Gloucester Street. It’s got a very distinctive wavy design and it looks really interesting now that the glass is going in. Can’t wait to see it all finished.
