    A floral clock with no hands...that's somewhere between twee and profound! ;-)

    Lovely to see the pohutukawas coming out!

    Watch out for the crone illogical puns!

    Perhaps we can get hours from the second-hand shop?

    Blame those with time on their hands...
    I believe the Albert Park foral clock's hands were removed as people would attempt to ride the hands, damaging the mech.

  • Nora Leggs,

    No clocking on or off then at Albert Park – would that be glide time or flexi time - or timeless?

    Unhand me, Sir

    clock’s hands were removed as people would attempt to ride the hands, damaging the mech

    So we have the form of the clock without the function? A conundrum to face.

    I generally consider these, which are just starting to open, the best flowers to take close-ups of. Over December I will regularly stop and try different macro style shots.
    Each bloom feels like some delicate astronomical model.

    Love the seasonal clock Leigh.
    What got into those people with time on their hands Tim? Would’ve been a pretty slow ride!

    Love all the clock rocking beats.

    Yesterday we said goodbye to a true gentlemen of our family. Flowers are great, aren’t they?

    It is two buildings plus connections and extensions. One is the old Art Deco bus terminal.

    Fireworks finale for Xmas in the park.
    Viewed from up the hill.
    Must've been quite a bit of coughing going on down there afterwards.

    Inspired by The 39 Steps maybe?

    That’s wonderful, thanks Sofie. I’m finding great solace in the beauty of things.

    Cool fireworks shots Nora. We heard them, along with the neighbours setting theirs’ off at 1.30am. Shall be having a quiet day today, me thinks.

    Yes, I and Stella are frankly getting a bit sick of firecrackers still going off in the middle of the night since the beginning of November. They seem louder this year and the dog’s wee claws dig deeper in her efforts to leap into my back. I almost jumped out of my skin at the BOOM!! that goes off from satisfied ignorant neighbours. I’d say something in our defence but they already know my views of their ignorance (I’ve had tree dealings) and it would only satisfy themselves more. Such is the ugly side of humanity. But the crackers for the crackies must be louder this year huh?

    Arrrgh! the crackers does my head in!! ;)

    How was the Dunedin Sound Exhibition?

    I'd call it more of an exhibit than exhibition. Artefacts from the time with some accompanying social history, in a similar way to Dunedin in World War One or other exhibits. So it is presented as a natural part of the collection rather than a one off special event. I suspect this element got media attention more for the bringing the history of the collection into people's immediate past, rather than scope or depth.

    Also, being behind traction engines is a cool reason for a slower than expected car trip.
