Fridayshootout: Lines and stripes

Those box like things are archery target. It was exactly last year when I posted this article. http://annkschin.blogspot.com/2009/09/man-verses-dog.html


This is the YMCA building at Rocket Park in Mt Albert.

Fallen pine needles on a footpath.

This is inside the Skydome where a very powerful telescope is house. That is why you see the wooden lines are curved. http://ann-mythoughtsandphotos.blogspot.com/2010/02/stardome-observatory-auckland.html

His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej, the King of Thailand's birthday. Celebrated by his subjects and revered as a God. This was taken in Auckland, at Rocket park last year.
