Good evening 😍 Hope I’m not boring you all with the frequent pics of Otago Harbour, but it really is stunning 😆
@simplicitarian I never tire of your photos. They are always beautiful. I grew up in North East Valley, so we rarely ventured your way. When we did, it was to Glenfalloch - and the swings. But 60+ years later, I still feel the pull of this area. I love this Katherine Mansfield quote: "How hard it is to escape from places. However carefully one goes they hold you — you leave little bits of yourself fluttering on the fences — little rags and shreds of your very life."
@paulhellyer I lived in NEV for about 5 years! That was in the 90s. But I’ve been here, not far from Glenfalloch, for a long time now. 😊
@paulhellyer And I love that KM quote. I’m currently scanning and cataloguing old family photos, and I’m fascinated by the ones of various places I lived in as a child.
