Immerse yourself in Annie Baird’s vibrant and fun scenes of Ōtepoti Dunedin, painted in the 1980s, while playing a tried and true game of Eye Spy! Visions both familiar and nostalgic are painted with Baird’s characteristic exuberance and heart. I spy…what will you spy this Summer?
I spy with my little eye
Ōtepoti from A through Z.
See the albatross sleeping
safe and sound at Taiaroa Head.
Can you spy someone ready for sleeping
all snuggled up in their bed?
Find Peter Pan in the gardens,
Queen Victoria on her throne
Go on, spot them if you can!
Spy Josephine, the tricycle
And the children with the ice cream van!
Spot the blue horse, the red shoes
and all things starting with B, P or V.
Can you find something beginning with Ng or Wh?
What about the Bell Tiger climbing in a tree?
I spy, you spy, let’s play Eye Spy
What will you choose for Ōtepoti’s Z?
