Monkey Kiss

In Nagano at the Monkey Park (Jigokudani Yaen-Koen)

This damp monkey could be blowing a kiss… He’s most likely not and if you went ‘awwww’ at him he would be likely to scratch out your eyes. I got too close to one and he screeched and swiped at me.

The lil baby ones were cute. They all hang out around a hot pool that they bath in after frolicking in the snow and being pestered by tourists.

Daisy Daisy

On this weeks photo walk Wednesday my wedding photographer friend brought along his new 100mm Macro lense.

It is a NICE lense!!

We drove down to the Canon building next to the Motorway with a nice view of the city skyline... but I got down on my hands and knees for something a little closer:

The old St James

We were wandering around town last Saturday, Tim and I were.
This is the back entrance to the St James Theatre. It reminds me of the alley where Batman was born :)

Fabric Flowers

Today I went on a photo walk with a mate. He wanted some shots of a sculpture at the front on the Auckland Art Gallery.

This chandelier was hanging in the lobby. The flowers are inflatable fabric and expand and close automatically.

Here is the bottom level of the Chandelier

Under the Hedge

This mushroom once lived beneath the hedges outside the mighty walls of the Sovereign building at Smales Farm on Auckland North Shore.

I like to think it is now part of some video game with an Italian plumber.
