6:00 am and its finally finished. here is the first print test. Im happy how the fine carving lines worked on her pants making a grayish color. I was working on this and thinking of the first time I started doing wood/lino cut prints. It was at @vincentsartworkshop and I’m always happy I visited that place four years ago. So a big thank you to all the people at Vincents🤗
It's good weather to get out along Oriental Parade as this photo from @mjyooh_ shows. Just a few minutes walk from the city, this golden sand beach is a top spot for a bit of walking, cycling or people watching. It's a safe swimming spot for families and plays host to beach sporting events during summer. It's also home to some of the swankiest real estate in the city and great eateries.

Wandering Lyall Bay would be a dream on a day like today. This shot from @vfm_william shows off the coastline in all its glory. Home to some pretty famous people by New Zealand standards, Lyall Bay is becoming the place to be if you're fond of roaring planes and howling winds. Maranui Surf Life Saving Club was established next to Lyall Bay Surf Life Saving Club after a whopping great argument in 1910 between two members. One got the pip and started Maranui in 1911, just a few hundred metres away from the other club. #wellington#wellingtonnz#sea#sun#waterfront#water#newzealand#greatphoto#photography#surfing#maranui#surf#coast#sunnyday
This is the kind of view you can never get tired of. Mount Victoria (known to locals as Mt. Vic) provides stunning 360-degree views of Wellington City, the harbour and the ocean to the south. Legend has it that Wellington harbour, originally a land-locked lake, was home to two large and very active taniwha (sea monsters). One taniwha forged a passage to the open sea creating the entrance to the harbour. The second, named Whataitai, tried a different route, became stranded and died. It is believed that Tangi-te keo (Mt Victoria) was named after the soul of Whataitai. Mount Victoria is part of the Wellington Town Belt, land set aside in 1841 by the colonial New Zealand Company for a "public recreation ground for the inhabitants of Wellington".

My first shot of my new home!! You probably couldn’t tell by my melbourne backposting but I actually moved to Wellington two months ago! How time has flown. Anyway here’s my first shot of this utterly wonderful lil city!
Agouti are such an underrated species! These guys are one of the few animals in the world that can open Brazil nuts without tools, thanks to their strength and sharp teeth. Agoutis open the fruit, take some of the nuts and bury the rest, which germinate to become new trees! Photo via Zoo Educator Tim.
Blown away by the city? The three-metre-high letters made of corrugated iron were erected on a Miramar hillside near the city's airport on Friday. A crane hoisted the letters up to be bolted onto a frame by men with abseiling equipment. A public argument started in 2010 when the airport suggested a "Wellywood" sign in Hollywood-style lettering, and a competition was held instead to determine the design. The advertising firm Saatchi & Saatchi won with its "Blown Away" design. Ever since, the infamous sign has been an icon of the Wellington skyline. This iconic shot comes from @beboho_staywild #wellington#wellingtonnz#wellywood#weta#newzealand#signs#wellingtonsigns#green#bluesky#photos#instagram#hillside#hollywood#sign
UNRAVELLED @citygallerywellington embraces the disorder & irregularity of 'anti-form' sculpture through five different artists 🧶🎨 Our favourite here, Welly-based Isabella Loudon has completely transformed an empty space by soaking twine in cement & hanging it out to cure, its weight succumbing to gravity before setting. Perfect grids begone - these fragile sculptures lean, hang & intertwine organically. Another local, Kirsty Lillico is known for cutting shapes from the floorplans of buildings, including pieces of old carpet, sculpted to drape & fold in unique ways 👀💙 #lovewelly
