Photo of the Day - September 1st, 2018

Back in 2009, I was headed to California for my brothers wedding, and faced with a 12 hour layover in Auckland, I figured the logical thing to do would be to track down the one landmark of West Auckland I already knew, the 'West House' from the New Zealand TV series 'Outrageous Fortune'. The series finished filming in 2010, although a few years later, the West House would return to the small screen in 2015 in the prequel to Outrageous Fortune, 'Westside'. Back in 2009, the location of the actual house was a fairly well kept secret, with those in the know encouraged to keep quiet about it in order to prevent people recreating some of the infamous scenes from the series. Thankfully, I was able to work out it, and from a discrete distance, we were able to get a shot of the outside of the house, which is today's Photo of the Day.
