Here is another set in my series, “A Walk in Ngaio”. The urge to preserve is strong: somehow I want to capture what Ngaio is like, what it looked like at some point in time. As I said in my previous post, I shun people in these photos, as if they are not so permanent as perhaps the landscape and the buildings are. Yet the structure of Ngaio is predominately shaped by people. You can see the people in the structures, as it were. You can see order and conformity a lot of the time, a hymn to both planning and community. Nairnville Park is like this: a triumph of engineering and landscape, yet it serves the local community so well. It is tune with the community. But that community values order and conformity. Ngaio is a middle-class suburb. A place to be caught in the middle of :-).
