Grateful old bolts and cables held

Arapuni Suspension Bridge, Waikato, NZ. Images: Su Leslie 2018

The Arapuni Suspension Bridge was built in the late 1920s so that workers building the Arapuni Hydro Dam could get from the construction site to their accommodation in the village.

These days it’s part of the Waikato River Trails walk and cycle way.

Wondering what is on his mind

And …

My friend Sarah at Art Expedition is hosting a variation on the Seven Day B&W Challenge — this time the image must include people.

The rules of Sarah’s Seven Day B&W Challenge — Street Photography are:

• Thank the person who has nominated/tagged you and provide a link to their blog.

•  Go out and take pictures of complete strangers for 7 days in a row and post one of them each day of the challenge (you can also post 7 photos in one post if you´re more comfortable with this).

• The photos should be in b/w.

• Nominate as many people as you like

As always, I’m not a fan of individual nominations, but invite everyoneto take part in this if you can fit it in your blogging schedule.

Sometimes it almost feels like paradise

Auckland lies on an isthmus between the Waitemata and Manukau harbours. The Waitemata, on the east coast, is the better known and much more popular, with most of the city’s best swimming beaches and easy access to open water for sailors.

The Manukau, by contrast, is a huge, relatively shallow and largely enclosed harbour, accessible from the Tasman Sea only by crossing the treacherous Manukau Bar.

This afternoon, the Big T and I took advantage of some rare sunshine to drive out to Cornwallis, on the Manukau.

I’m glad we did.

While this is obviously not a six-word post, I am sharing it to Six Word Saturday, hosted by Debbie at Travel With Intent.
