Over the weekend of 20/21 Feb the Auckland Begonia Circle hosted their annual festival, displaying hundreds of beautiful blooms and plants. This enthusiastic group of amateur gardeners proudly displayed their blooms and shared their knowledge with the many visitors that visited and viewed the show. This annual event always ends with an auction, selling off many plants at bargain prices!

I photographed examples of buildings that have been given a new lease on life and hoped readers would consider what society may have lost if these buildings had been subjected to the wrecking ball.

Had a nude photo shoot yesterday in Auckland’s midday sun yesterday…it was so good to find a shady spot to work in!

Sailors Grave

Another magical spot on the Coromandel Peninsula is Sailors Grave, so called as a sailor drowned there in the 1800s. The grave is now looked after by the NZ Navy. The full story is here:

At times the surf rolls in, and others, as when we visited, the sea was quiet with children playing in the estuary outlet…
