Standing outside the City Art Gallery in Civic Square, Wellington this afternoon, I was struck by the contrasts between light and shadow, and between natural forms and sculptural shapes. Apart from size reduction, the image is pretty much as it came out of the camera.

    • I get your Egyptian effect, Judith … and the pyramid adds to it, don’t you think? The fan shape you refer to is actually one of a number of stylized metal palm trees (called ‘nikau’ in Māori) which are among the various sculptural features of Wellington’s Civic Square.
