I have to admit I am getting used to Auckland. This is the third Residential this year, and the third time I've stayed in a mid-city high-rise apartment, and this time I have a view and a balcony, and it's all very compact and modern and warm, and after each grueling, soul-searching, critiquing day I do rather enjoy going back to my little cosy haven.

I have lots of view...

And a tree down there...

And the sky tower to look at when I return from socialising in a pleasant little tapas bar with my art-y colleagues. Very nice.


  1. The last photo is brilliant as the blurry effect and the slanted angle of the tower brilliantly conveys the sense of a drunken artist staggering back to her lonely turret!

  2. Ha ha YP. You could well be correct. I really couldn't comment. Except to mention that it was taken from the middle of the road...

  3. And just think, my Bro can see that tower from his window in Devonport...
