The Dairy Spot, Heathcote

March 2, 2016


This spot used to have a dairy on it, but since the earthquakes it had lots of different things there – including now some corn and other vegetables. There was also a sign on the fence about the results of a survey conducted of local residents to find out what they thought should go back onto the site. You can see the results of the survey online as well at

Reflections in the Pond at Ferrymead

September 17, 2015


It was another nice evening so I went for a walk with my partner Bruce and we stopped to admire the reflections in the pond. I was camera-less, so this was taken by Bruce on his brand new Samsung Galaxy Note phone. I have some serious phone envy at the moment, still owing the Samsung Galaxy 4 – with it’s inferior camera.

I’m not sure how long this mural has been at the bus stop in Heathcote (on Bridle Path Road), but I only noticed it today. It was a nice bright spot on a cloudy late winter day. The artist credit on the mural is Flip Leylen.

Lambs Playing in Heathcote

August 12, 2015


I can run! I can jump! Let’s play. Lambs are just too cute. I heard the tell-tale bleating of a lamb while out on a walk through Ferrymead Park the other day, so came back with my big lens to see what I could get. They put on a bit of a show for me, and the lamb in the bottom right photo was very curious about what I was up to.
