Montana Penguins

A week or so ago I was at the Montana Book Awards. The memorable event was held at the Auckland Museum. Arriving a few minutes early I wandered over to the museum shop. I couldn’t resist buying this little set of penguins. $23. I took them into the ceremony with me, to a bar afterwards, and eventually back to my accommodation in Freemans Bay.

Now I’m playing with them to see if there is a photo in there somewhere. These are a couple of very quick rough snaps taken at my studio in New Plymouth. Nothing there yet.

I’ve been interested in penguins for a long time. Here’s photo I took last year in Invercargill.

And one I took at the Central Stories Museum in Alexandra, last year.
