May 1, 2015 … in the sunny Bay

So the convention gets under way.

Tauranga

A grey start to a day that turned out fine in the end

The days are full and the schedules hectic. I chose to go down to the inner harbour area after breakfast and before the first session. Looking under the rail bridge that crosses to Bayview I liked the rather old-fashioned fleet of vessels moored in the harbour.

The bridge itself imposes itself on the eye from this part of the harbour. Eventually the handrails persuaded me that there was a footpath beside the rails.

Around the curve

As far as I know there are few curved rail bridges in New Zealand. This is obviously one of them.

Time to get back to work.

About wysiwygpurple

I am a family man, a passionate amateur photographer and a retired academic . What's the purpose of this blog? Well in the first instance it provides me with a platform from which to resume writing, an activity I greatly enjoy. What will the blog be about? Anything that takes my fancy but it is likely to arise from things I see and experience, in my family, in my travels, or anything else I feel like. Each daily post will contain one or more images made the previous day. Sometimes the image will illustrate the points made in the prose, and sometimes the prose will attempt to interpret the image. What kind of images will they be? Always safe for work and family. Usually they will be representational, and sometimes they will be impressionistic or experimental.
