Making sense of my photography hobby in retirement

A Glimpse of Sky

During a trip to Northland with friends earlier this year we visited the pioneer settlement of Houhora. A local character in the early days was “King Bill” who was a trader, publican, land owner and general entrepreneur.  The local hall owned by “King Bill” was a centre of activity in those days and was variously used for meetings, dances, weddings and church services.  The building, which is near the pub that is still in use, is no longer used and is in an advanced state of decay.

This image was taken late in the day and captures a glimpse of former glory days.
