Photographer's Note

I do not know if Craig is a popular given name, I know only "our" Craig. I found it funny to see Craig's Building in Auckland. It is small and not something that Craig calls architecture but I think it is charming.

Queen Street is the major commercial thoroughfare in the Auckland CBD, Auckland, New Zealand's main population centre. It starts at Queens Wharf on the Auckland waterfront, adjacent to the Britomart Transport Centre and the Downtown Ferry Terminal, and runs increasingly more steeply uphill for almost three kilometres in a mostly straight south-southwesterly direction towards the Karangahape Road ridge, and the residential suburbs in the interior of the Auckland isthmus. Named after Queen Victoria, Queen Street was an early development of the new town of Auckland (founded in 1840). The late 19th and early 20th centuries saw a large number of imposing buildings constructed, such as the Smith & Caughey's building, the Auckland Town Hall and the General Post Office at the waterfront, later to become the Britomart Transport Centre. Queen Street is known by reputation all over the country, even by people who have never seen it. It gives its name to the most expensive square in the New Zealand version of Monopoly. In WS two other views from the Queen Street.

The sky is white because it was an early evening.
