Theme Day - rust

Welcome :)

It was suggested I start this blog by a friend of mine.  I love photography.  I also love the city of Napier. Before I start I would like to thank Amy as I have found a new excitement in my hobby :)  You have motivated me friend :)  

I am going to be linking to a host site called City Daily Photo and they have theme days on the first of the month.  Today's theme is rust.  So without further a do here is my photo of rust.



I had a walk around Ahuriri (a seaside suburb of Napier) yesterday afternoon and came across this mural painted on the corner of a building.  Can you see the lines of rust? - shame really :(

  3. Looking forward to more photos from you, Jen, and welcome to CDP. We are a friendly bunch, and you'll find many friends among us. Water is a great precursor to rust so boats and harbors are a wonderful place to find an image for this theme.

  4. Welcome to photoblogging, and a good choice for the theme. I'm going to have to look your location up in an atlas.

      as I have stated in my sidebar Napier is a New Zealand city with a seaport, located in the Hawke's Bay on the eastern coast of the North Island.

  5. What a lifelike mural! And yes, now I see the culprit, the metal, up on top, sharing its rust.

    Welcome to the group, Jen, and have fun blogging!

  7. Not so nifty with all that rust by the look of it - welcome to the CDPB community - We passed through Napier in 2001 staying at "The Large House" - don't know if it is still a boutique b&b now.

    2. The house is probably there just no longer a b&b - my account is at .http://www.geraldengland.co.uk/nz/nzj021.htm I didn't take any photos in Napier itself so used one off their website to illustrate that day!

  10. This new blog is a great idea Jen and I enjoy seeing your photos of Napier from your daily walks.

    I thought this photo was of a real boat at first sight. Very clever.
