Lights on

I've already shown you the face of Luna Park in broad daylight, well here it is at night.

Fancy a treat?

One of the things I missed most about France were pastries. I'd often daydream about dunking a croissant in my a chocolate or savouring a pain au chocolat to the last crumb. Then I found out about his place, La Renaissance, thanks to one of my former housemates who worked there. Ever since then, my life has never been the same! The pastries are simply to die for! They taste exactly like the ones "back home". Unfortunately for my hips, fortunately for my tastebuds the patisserie is not too far from where I work and a weekly pastry run has become very popular in the office! Yum :)

Beware of the dogs

They're here to keep an eye on the naughty students (Otago University - Auckland Campus)

Usually I prefer when people stay out of my photos but this time I waited for someone to step into the frame to add a little something to the shot. Posters are fantastic, they keep you up to date with what's on in the city and with their colours and clever designs they brighten up those dull billboards hiding building sites.

Snapped on Karangahape Road - can't pronounce it? No problem, the locals call it K Road. Easy.

Princes Wharf

After taking the photo I realised that the lamp post was getting in the way and took another one. But then I spotted the seagull and thought that it was a cool picture after all.

The clock is ticking

Coming back to the reflection theme, the Town Hall clock
reflected in the Sky City Cinemas building on Queen Street.

Glowing in the dark

I've already shown you (here) this Auckland landmark, the Sky Tower. The lighting at night changes according to events the city wants to promote and I wondered why it wasn't blue - the local rugby union team the Blues were playing their last game of the season on Saturday. Curiosity got the best of me as I was in the lift to go to the top and I put the question the lift attendant. His answer sounded a bit like "With the (bad) season they've had, they don't deserve it" but in actual fact, yellow was the colour of a comedy festival Auckland was hosting.

I'll kick off the Auckland series with ... myself! I'm getting increasingly fascinated by reflections and my eyes are always on the lookout for them, here in downtown Auckland.

Auckland, here I come (back)

Later today, I'm flying to Auckland for the weekend... and I can't wait to go back!

This is one of my favourite shots.. I love how the pebble snuggles up nicely in the sand.

Blurred vision?

Not quite... just the reflection of the AMP Tower in a pool of water.

Feeling cold?

Autumn is settling in round here and temperatures are getting a little bit cooler. Maybe this Giant Jersey would help to keep warm.
