Fridayshootout: Lines and stripes

Those box like things are archery target. It was exactly last year when I posted this article.

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.

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.
