[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was once the ANZ Bank in the main Street of Opunake a tiny town on the West Coast of Taranaki. I was born there and my sister was a teller in this bank.

No longer a bank but now Muzzas Bar & Grill.

Many of the buildings in Opunake have been painted withy different scenes, this is bold and colourful and contains modernistic Maori Artwork.

Just noticed a dust bunny on the far left .... oops.

Hi Ralph,
A very colorful facade of this Bar & Grill.
Good lighting and accurate focusing.
I like the POV you chose, it gives full coverage of this lovely edifice.
Great details, especially on the roof top.
Nicely presented.
Best regards,

Francis Xavier
