Welcome to 2014! I thought I’d share some photos I’ve taken in the last few days from the art deco capital of the world – Napier, New Zealand.
Tom Parker Fountain, Napier. This dates to 1936. At night the water glows in rainbow colours, Hollywood magic style. I knew the guy who used to change the light bulbs.
Former T&G Building (1936) on Napier’s Marine Parade. The cars take tourists on ‘period’ tours of the city’s heritage.
Detail of the Paxie building in Hastings Street, Napier.
Studebaker at large. Restored 1930s cars seem to be a common sight around town these days.
This year’s already stacked for me, certainly writing-wise. I have a book in press and others to finish and get to publishers by deadline. More on that soon. And I’ve got a lot of blogging fun planned, including more writing tips, science geekery and other fun stuff. Including revealing how to measure lightspeed with custard. Watch this space.
What have you got planned for 2014? I’d love to hear from you.
