The Coolest Floor In Melbourne

When Colour And Happiness Around Lay

Isn’t this floor just outstanding! I find it hard to believe there would be a better floor anywhere in Melbourne. This is in the Victorian National Gallery in Melbourne. I was originally aiming to photograph the stain-glass ceiling they have there , but an event was on (held by Christian Dior I think) so I searched out the best possible vantage point to capture the floor instead. I ended up on the second floor, because the view from the second floor gave me the interplay between the brick walls and the coloured floor that I wanted.

The Tape, the boots and the beer.
Plenty of tape was rolled out, the boots were dusted off and a few beers were shared after the final whistle at the Spartan 10’s this afternoon. Here is a quick gallery of people and faces from the tournament which was held to help get raise funds for youngster Harry Finch.

Regular Programming

At The Track

It kinda felt like …..
…. we were back to regular programming today at the track in Dunedin as over 100 athletes turned out for the Otago interclub meeting. With the Classic Series being on around the country recently, a number of athletes have been away competing at other events but with those now complete,the numbers have returned.

The sun was out, it was warm,  there were plenty of athletes and very little wind which made it a pretty nice afternoon to be at the track. 

If you’re after the results from today’s athletic meeting then here’s where you can find them once they’re posted. Checkout all the athletics results here.

Inside Sutton Railway Station

I Mark’d Where It Stood

This is the inside of the Sutton Railway Station and yes, there are only two rooms. I went in search of information about the small station and came across a piece that I thought this was so interesting when I read it I had to share it:
“Etched into the timber weatherboards of the station are the names and initials of soldiers from the area who served in the First World War, carved as they left for the front. Among these are the initials of Arthur Charles Peat, a member of the Otago Infantry Battalion, who left Sutton in late 1914 with other local men. Arthur never returned to Sutton. He was killed in action at Gallipoli in August 1915.”

Bygone Dreams of Another Moment

The curiosity in me really wants to see what it’s like inside this old cottage, I look at it every time I drive past it. However, as it’s on farmland, I’ll have to keep wandering until I get permission.

Tautuku Bay Sunrise

And This We Rightly Know

I had this whole beach to myself and it was quite an airy feeling to be strolling along the beach in the darkness. I hadn’t seen another person or vehicle since I left the camp site and once reaching the beach, there certainly wasn’t a shortage of location options to see the sun coming up.

Pre-Season At The Grassroots

Club Rugby Premier 2 Final: West Taieri v Dunedin (03.08.18)

Pre-season Training

Late January is always the time of year when clubs start gearing up into action. As January turns into February many clubs have already started their preseason training and the clubs that haven’t, won’t be too far away from getting underway. By now, preseason fixtures are locked in and while most recruiting for all levels in the 2019 club season  has already been done, there are the usual invitations to anyone who is interested to come along and have a look.

With the pre-season getting underway, I had a scan across the club websites and Facebook pages to see what’s going on. Here’s an overview of what I have found is happening across the clubs in Otago.

If a club doesn’t appear here then I could find any information relating to pre-season. Some of this information might have changed since the time of writing.

Kapiti Island with Cloud

There Are Reasons You Should Stay.

The whole reason for the crop on this image of Kapiti Island is to get that wee patch of orange/red cloud and it’s reflection in. Initially I cropped it with a 12:5 ratio (or close to it) but the more I looked at it, the more I realised that I really liked what that wee patch of cloud added to the final image.
