Old New World image

Kaikoura, Canterbury, 2006. (From Old New World.) (Image copyright Mary Macpherson)

In honour of the All Blacks Rugby World Cup victory, here’s an image from my upcoming Old New World book. The goalposts, which were in a backyard near the sea, are made of Manuka sticks. When I went back a couple of years later hoping to see them again, and perhaps take another photograph, there was one stick standing. I photographed the remaining upright but it didn’t have same feeling. What do they say….you can never go back.
