Dunedin Architecture

One of the pleasures of being back in Dunedin is getting to look at the beautiful architecture.  Dunedin is home to some wonderful neo-Gothic public buildings as well as huge ornate late 19th century villas.  We went driving around the town last weekend, to give Travis a break from the lounge.

First up was the main building of Otago Boy's High School.  It was apparently designed to cow and chasten its pupils and it's certainly imposing.

Here's the railway station which was recently restored to its original splendour and is now the most photographed tourist attraction in New Zealand.

And some of the glamourous private homes in Dunedin.

    I just wish I was better at taking pictures of buildings – it's surprisingly difficult to get good shots.

    Thanks! Dunedin really is lovely – I'll have to get out and about to take more pictures.

    Thanks. My husband took these ones – he's been walking the streets noticing things I'd never really paid attention to in all the years I lived here. Seeing a place with new eyes really helps.

    It’s also funny what one sees through the viewfinder: it’s like a different world!
