Macro Monday: glass and granite

For this week’s Phoneography Challenge I’ve focused on a couple of things I’m really interested in; cast glass and family history — the latter in the form of headstones.

I spent some time last week at the Auckland Art Fair, where I discovered a selection of work by Auckland artist Evelyn Dunstan.Ā  The pieces exhibited all had a botanical theme.

In between the rain showers today I decided to visit the O’Neill’s Point cemetery in Bayswater, Auckland. I grew up in Bayswater, and used to play in the cemetery as a kid. Today was the first time I’ve been back in over 40 years. It’s one of Auckland’s oldest burial grounds, with very few new interments.

The weather wasn’t particularly kind, so I ended up taking very few photos.

    • Thanks Suzanne. I absolutely love glass art, and was really happy to find an artist whose work I didn’t know. And she’s local!!!!
