There’s something special about walking on skyways. Whether they have glass beneath your feet or stick to glassed-in walls, that feeling of being in the sky – a pedestrian between buildings high in the air – is amazing.
I’ve been photographed in one before, for my airport scavenger hunt with Amie, but thought it would make a great location all on its own. Especially when I kept walking through this handy one in the city on Saturday afternoons (between K’ Road and the Mercury car park) and finding it deserted! Between wearing a top that made flashing my tits easy, making good use of my gorilla pod to hang my camera from the metal railings, and the very useful 10-second delay on the camera itself, I got some very pleasing photographs.

In this direction – looking up Cross Street toward Mercury Lane – there’s a very exciting view of the parking building, and a bit of a peek at the Green Party‘s Auckland office. The afternoon sunlight makes it a bit bright in this direction!
Facing the other way – down Cross Street toward Queen Street – you can see the other skyway (which goes through to the Asian Supermarket) and a whole lot more parking building. Just past that, though, is Club Sparty, which is a couples/lifestyles club. Sparty’s has been the occasion of some pretty great play parties, my first rope suspension, and also where I was covered in donuts that were then eaten off me (now that was a good, albeit messy, night).
Do you have any skyways where you live?
