Night Photography in Auckland, New Zealand

This was the 21st post (Day 21) of an entire year-long series, which I named ‘Project 365′. The idea was simple enough: travel for a full year and document every day of it, in the form of a daily picture and poem. I am still working on a book of this year-long travel, but till then, enjoy all the posts here. You can check out the daily posts in the details below or jump to the final day of the project by clicking here.

22nd July 2014 – Auckland, New Zealand

The cold winds pierced my skin,
And the city lights pierced my senses high.
And while the winds blew and the city slept
The forlorn needle pierced the forgotten sky.
Auckland needle in the sky

Night photography in Auckland, with the needle in the sky.


I took the flight from Nadi to Auckland at noon, and the immigration went smoother than imagined. Except for the biosecurity bit, which scared me for a can of tuna that was in my bag. But once they checked the can, and everything was clear, the tuna never caused a problem anymore.

Once in Auckland, I met a good friend, who was married to another one of my good friends, and lives in Auckland. Crashing his pad for the night, and was very lazy to go click something. But one look out of his balcony, and I had to take a pic.

There, Auckland. I saw your needle in the sky.
