New kid on the block


Every now and again I change the area where I run each morning. For the last couple of weeks I've been running through residential streets, through a park and back along the main road past this new building. This is an apartment block that was built a few months ago, looks kind of minimalistic to me but underneath there is a coffee shop on the corner, next to that a travel agents and some offices further down, next door in a smaller building is a backpackers and next to that are the golden arches of McDonalds (where my daughter works).

Cloudy skies with quite a bit of rain this morning, places of NZ got more flooding - seems to have been a rather wet then dry Summer this season. Looking forward to tomorrow as I have a wedding to attend with the other half in which I have been asked to photograph so a bit nervous about that.

Linking up with Skywatch Friday :-)

  1. Hello, I like the apartment building. We have had plenty of the gray sky days.

  2. It is a nice building. That seems to be the new thing here in Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA. Apartment buildings with retail and commercial on the first floor.
    Good luck on your photography gig. I like taking pictures for myself. If I mess up too bad for me. I would be nervous of taking pics where people would be depending on me.

  3. That is a nice looking apartment building. With the businesses located at the bottom, they will attract some of the residents because of the convenient location. Good for business.
    I photograph for people occasionally and I'm nervous also. Good luck, I'm sure you'll do fine.

  5. Yes it looks so simple and functional. Last night I met a NZ resident vacationing here in Manila, she was newly wed and they stay near the Waterfalls in Auckland, the only waterwall i saw when i was there!

  8. The idea of living in an apartment with a coffee shop below sounds quite appealing Amy ☺ Nice to change up your run route now and then. Good luck with the wedding photography.. maybe we will get to see a few 😊

  9. I like the fact that the architect has continued the NZ tradition of building over the walkway.Like some other commenters I also like the idea of living over a coffee shop.
