The texture of stone

Arrowtown is a little village that was part of the New Zealand gold rush. I'll bet you didn't know there was such a thing, but now you do. Mostly now they sell tourist knick-knacks and some lovely arts and crafts stuff. We could easily have spent the entire day strolling around the river park, and spending a bit more time in the shops.

There is lots of local stone used in buildings and retaining walls. I'm sure there are many lovely photos to be had if you have the patience to wait for the light. We had a lunch date so there was a bit of a deadline.

  1. There is an interesting start to ideas on scale in photos 2 and 3. The ambiguity of scale appears to be a recurring theme in some of your photos. The vista is reminiscent of some in Italy and yet it is very different.


Looking forward to reading your comment!
