I’ve taken this picture in a rugged dead-end side street somewhere close to the Auckland CBD. Those narrow, dirty and dark passages are usually not very welcoming places and usually they put a very depressing face on a otherwise good image of a city. But when I took this picture I remembered something everyone should do in a big city once in a while: Look upwards towards the sky. You might find more beauty than on the ground, whatever that means. This picture is my reminder to do so.
