Briefly off topic

Look what I got up to over the weekend – is this ghoulish or what?!

Just look at how beautifully those bones fit together – strength, flexibility and interconnectedness. Poor ewe…

Bleached by the sun and wind, I’m not sure how this sheep died, but most of it was half-submerged in the sand, with only a few bones carried off by scavengers. The structures are incredible, fitting together with precision and beauty.
The last shot is taken on the Kaitorete Spit looking back towards the hills of Banks Peninsula.


    1. I’ve always been a believer in form and function combining well to give beauty – and these bones (dem bones, dem bones, dem dry bones!) really bring that home to me.
