Memento Mori: Moonlit grave at Te Hapu

Memento Mori: Moonlit grave at Te Hapu

Moonlit grave at Te Hapu, Golden Bay. 9.28pm, 7 February 2012 This follows my Memento Mori post of last month, and records the lonesome hilltop grave of young Cecil Addison, a Tb victim from 1924.

The whitest lights are those of the airport runway. The distant hills mark successive earthquake upthrusts over several million years. The inlet […]

All quiet at the marae, by moonlight

All quiet at the marae, by moonlight

The Whakatu marae sits on 10 hectares of reclaimed estuary next to Founders Park, in the city. It is hub to six iwi: Ngati Koata, Ngati Kuia, Te Runanga o Toarangatira, Ngati Rarua, Ngati Tama and Te Atiawa. I took this scene because the entrance-way nicely mirrored the meeting house profile; the roofline vents also added […]
