This is another image from the 2009 Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk.  The triangular handles on a playground swinging frame in Auckland’s Meyers Park made an interesting repetitive pattern.

It was during Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk in Auckland last year that this car was spotted.  The day was wet, although it stopped raining during the walk.  Apart from the zigsaw pieces, the window sticker was interesting.

Goodbye Pork Pie was a 1981 New Zealand movie directed by Geoff Murphy and is considered by some to be one of New Zealand’s most popular films.  The Mini in the movie was a yellow 1978 Morris Mini 1000 assembled in New Zealand for British Leyland by New Zealand Motor Corporation.In January 2009 The Pork Pie Run was organised by the Whangarei Mini Owners Group to celebrate a half-century of the Mini’s debut and followed the route from Whangarei in the North Island to Invercargill in the South Island taken by the Blondini Gang in the film.
