When in Wellington, I went to a very convivial post-opening party, at the Southern Cross Hotel.
I noticed these candles sitting on a shelf over a big fireplace. I left the party, walked back to my accomodation, picked up my camphone which foolishly I hadn’t taken with me in the first place, walked back to the bar, and took this little picture. (incidentally, click on image above and it will come up bigger).

Meanwhile, it got me thinking about the similarities between this candle photo and one that I took of an et al sculpture, shown here at the Govett-Brewster, in New Plymouth, a couple of years ago.

I can see how there are certain visual similarities between the two subjects. I must have been photographing the et al, primarily because of the shapes within it.
