Real or illusion.....!

                              
On the corner of Howard St.and The Esplanade  there are two buildings that couldn't be more different in style if they tried!!  On one corner is the BGC Centre building which is all glass and mirror and disappearing up into the heavens, and on the other is Bank of New Zealand House which is a much more traditional sturdy style building, but what caught my eye was the reflection of the BofNZ House looking more solid in reflection on the BCG building than the actual building itself, giving the glass building a look of tenuous reality.....!! btw after all my complaining about lack of winter yesterday, it's been bucketing down all night with storms and hail predicted for the rest of today...go figure..I LOVE it.....!!

  19. Hello from the other side of the planet! I found your blog randomly, but what is funny is that some of the last shots I took recently is a sign with the distance from my house to Sydney. Australia is in my dreams - I would loove to see it one day. Now Perth looks gorgeous too.
    I enjoy your blog a lot!
