  2. Love the bird in the second and the arches on that bridge. They remind me of some arches I saw in Port Stanley - but these don't fill me with sadness. (The arches in Port Stanley were whale bone.)

    1. All good honest metal, there, EC. I have about four thousand pics of that bridge, I was so fascinated by the curving side shapes!

  3. I tend to photograph posts in water also. I wonder why that is..... :)

    1. For me it's whatever is around water, or in front of it, or whatever...

  6. The joined-up fence posts with the sea behind is the one that stands out to me.

  7. I love the photo of the bird and couldn't figure out what kind of bird it is until I enlargened it and saw the spiderweb underneath it! Nice sculpture! And is that the Rewa Rewa Bridge in New Plymouth?

    1. I liked the bird too :) And yes, it is the Rewa Rewa bridge - have you seen it? I discovered it in October when I was in New Plymouth; there are more photos in this post http://dreamingofopenseas.blogspot.co.nz/2013/10/what-i-saw-on-my-holidays.html

      I may do a whole post on it one day.

  8. Oh my gosh, I do believe the tourist division should scoop your post up and show it off! Alexia these are beautiful!

  9. So interesting how the posts can represent a barrier or a gate, depending on what the viewer brings to each picture. I like these shots. And it reminds me of some post pictures of my own I might have to dig out at some point.
