What a treasure trove of goodies our readers have sent in.

Treasure was the theme for this week, and it threw up some interesting ideas about treasure means to different people.

Tracey Hill snapped a photo of coins dropped half way up Plimmer Steps. She re-arranged them and took a snap.  Tracey said she like effect of the flash bouncing off the coins, even though they are not quite in focus.

Jewellery is oftem considered a treasure. Adriana Weber made a simple necklace the star a photo reminscient of early Hollywood opulence.

 Hans Weston snapped a gem of a different sort. This tiny blue elephant, trunk pointed up denoting good luck, was spotted in Newtown.

Meanwhile Dan Smith stepped outside the box in showing that history is treasured item. His snap of a shoreline plaque on the corner of Willis St and Lambton Quay serves to remind us that treasure can be more than sparkly objects worth vast amounts of money.

Keep your photos coming.  It's great to see Wellington through the eyes of our readers.
