Auckland - photographing at MOTAT

The Museum of Transport and Technology (MOTAT) is a museum located in Auckland bordering the lake at Western Springs. The museum has large collections of civilian and military aircraft and other land transport vehicles. Largely managed by volunteers there is an ongoing program to restore and conserve the collections which has always seemed to me to be a battle of energy and enthusiasm over the ravages of time.

MOTAT is a strange place to visit. There is a feeling of impermanence and decay as today becomes history. Here are some pictures I made yesterday.
