Sunday Snapshot

Thirty kilometres south of where I live is the small town of Katikati (the Maori name means to nibble or shear). It is popular with tourists for the murals which are painted on almost every wall or building. Many of them feature scenes or figures from the town's history, others are whimsical or simply decorative. I have posted about Katikati here.
Last autumn I went to try to photograph all or most of the murals. 
Some of them were difficult to capture, and it wasn't a very good day in terms of light, 
but here are two.

This is probably my favourite. It's a whole wall showing an original homestead near the town:

Here's a section in close-up:

And I like the details in this one, especially the cat and the hens:

I hope you have a particularly happy Sunday!

Lost in the Blogger wilderness

My blog has dropped off the edge of the world; I haven't been able to see it for several days.

I can't see what everyone is posting, and I am VERY miserable...

I wonder if other people can see it??

Thematic Photographic: Made of Steel

I must admit that I found this theme difficult, and I had to borrow other people's ideas. 

When I began looking, I realised how much stainless steel there is in a modern house!

Kitchen tap

Tap and sinks

Range hood

Surely my favourite bridge must have lots of steel in it?
