Making sense of my photography hobby in retirement

Bar Coded

When walking on Te Whero Island that connects the Auckland CBD to the Wynyard Quarter you become part of the urban artwork that is a giant bar code.

Te Whero Island

This image was taken into the late afternoon western sun which cast long shadows across the painted barcode  pattern.  Straight ahead is the lifting bridge known as the Wynyard Crossing, with the new Viaduct Event Centre on the right. I prefer this black and white rendition to the colour version as it highlights the tonal contrasts better.
