Cripes I better hurry and post something. Been a tad distracted the last 4-5 days. I have a photo but not much in the way of words today. My brain is doing its own thing right at the moment.
The photo is a 45 exposure vertorama of Cafe Eutopia in Kaiwaka, about an hour and a half north of Auckland.. The subjects are crooked and askew and that can't be helped because that's just how they are in real life. I like to get everything squared up but in some instances you just have to shrug and accept whats in front of you. Its all part of its charm really.
from their website:
Step into another place...
A good place. A Eutopia. Here at Café Eutopia, all our endeavours are eutopian, which is why we serve delicious food, refreshing organic fruit juices and the best coffee north of anywhere. We are open 9am till 3pm Sunday to Thursday and till 4pm Friday and Saturday.But Eutopia is about food for the spirit too. Explore our vision here!
Ooooh also if you visit make sure to drop into the cheese shop right next to it and grab me some more Gouda!

Tamaki Drive - Winter Blues Part 1
I'm over winter. The novelty has worn off now and I'm more than ready for spring. Bring on the warmer days, fresh blossoms and meadows teaming with gallivanting lambs I say.
The past few mornings have been heavy with fog and mist. I didn't realise there was a difference between the two until just now when I looked it up online. Weird. Anyway, I was planning on another location but had to switch up my plans due to the fog being way too thick. I figured it might be slightly clearer down on the waterfront and managed to catch the blue hour through the mist, fog...you get the idea.
