Hi folks.... Our Theme today, chosen my Janice, was OLD...

We being: Janice, Pam (coasties), Peter (esonut) New Kiwi member to TL, and his wife Marilyn, and myself..
meet up in Symonds Street Auckland early this morning, to explore some of the surrounding area: Symonds Street, Aucklands Oldest Cemetary, and Karangahape Rd..

Here I caught sight of a very OLD brick building being reflected in a newer glass type building across the road, In Karangahape Road..Ive always driven past thinking I must get a photo of that one day... so I was pleased to be able to, today.

A fun day was had by all.. and it was nice to meet Peter (esonut) and Marilyn...thanks for joining us you two...

And thanks Pam and Janice for a great day... gotta watch that Janice though... she leads me astray!..lol..

Cheers Dawn.

Hi Dawn,
It sure is a beauty, good composition, great colours.
"City of Sails"! I see sails in the logo bottom left, and OLD sailing ship rigging in the fire escapes and their shadows.
Well done.
Thanks for a most enjoyable day.

Hi Dawn,
Haaa....stunning! Well seen, refletion and colours. Coposition is very interesting the 'active' reflecting windows against the 'static' grey tiles. Perfect capture my dear Dawn. Hope y've had a great day with you Kiwi TL-friends.
Kia ora!

Great crazy image Dawn! These interesting shapes have been well spotted and recorded. Wasn't it a lovely day to be out and about. Very well done! Cheers, Pat.

Wonderful seen and done, Dawn !
I think that a monochrome version would work, too.

Hi Dawn,

I like the contradiction between the old and the new... I can imagine that you couldn't wait to make this picture! :-) Well seen and very well done! Have a great day! Ciao, Bianca

Hi Dawn,

This is an excellent combination of new and old! Great vivid colours and sharpness! Your new theme sounds very interesting. Can't wait what's next. :)

Well done

Hi Dawn,
Very interesting shot and very well seen. It reminds me of those tile games, ya know, where ya slide all the pieces around till you get them all in place...and voila, a pic. Very good idea Dawn. Your POV was most excellant! Great shooting. TFS!
