Hasn't NZ the equivalent of Parental visa Oz has?

I'm sure it has but it's vanishingly unlikely

Meanwhile, on with the show.

I took a recently purchased Samyang 8mm fisheye to relieve trolly pushing duties shopping boredom 🙂

Get ready to be reminded a lot!

Masonic Hotel and T&G building

Scinde building, originally the Masonic hall

 

I love Deco. I just walked round Napier with my mouth open. Half the images I took are going up on Alamy- just extraordinary..

OK just one more for now, there are 98 but everyone else may get bored

Just realised this lot will take me over 10,000.

 

 

Too bad

We now have son/D in L and granddaughter there. We'd be there like a shot if there were a way. It's a better place.

 

 

when you said you loved art Deco i was hoping you made it to Napier....  love the place...first visited in 92, when they were starting to realise that what they had deserved preserving...

Hate that the T&G has a Starbucks, but hey!

You're bringing back memories of my visit in 2014/15... visited a lot of the same places.

If I was 30 years younger I'd emigrate there, but they won't have me now as I'm too old/not rich enough!

Phil

 

 

same here (though the 14/15 for me reads as : 92, 03, 04/05, 08, 15, 16    i love the country).  one of my perverse joke comment  as a Canadian from Brexit move was that it would force a form of free movement within the former empire , and i'd move tomorrow...

Excellent point, I’ll do that now. BTW we do recycle responsibly 🙂

 

 

sadly recycling is not enough. reducing packing has to come first... great image for that illustration... why do bananas with their own wrapping need more?

 

could be great use for image...

Never noticed, so many places in NZ to get a nice cup of coffee.

Here's one where you can't really see the Starbucks.

Cheers. Dry martini at the Masonic.

:-).  I only mainly noticed as it was an addition the second time i visited... 

 

by the way, had you only uploaded one, "Masonic Martini" would be an Alamywhack. 😁

Ah, too bad, but I think they all need to be there.

I'll stop soon, I promise. It's a volcano next.

i agree the images all deserved to be there (and i still think when you have all the versions, it's still close enough to an Alamywhack) 

 

don't stop on my account (though in fairness i've been stalking your portfolio since you came back. )  

Taranaki, Ruepahu or Ngauruhoe?

Just rushed a couple through for you

And Taranaki- but only the falls.

I wonder if the recent cold snap in Vancouver killed the batteries on this small electric car (Electra Meccanica Solo). I guess this one might have been a good fit for the current "irony" challenge. 😁

 

P.S. We're back to rain now. 😣

Being fed up with endless wet and gloomy weekends, I took myself off to Cardiff's indoor market in the hope of finding something interesting to shoot. Discovered a very charming vintage-style clothes stall had sprung up. Had to have that!

Tried to escape the rain in Arizona but it rained for most of my visit (!).  However there was a day in which it was just cloudy.  This is Oak Canyon near Sedona.

I was bush camping miles away for civilisation. Access is by rough dirt roads only, preferably 4x4.

I stayed several hours by this tree waiting for the sky to be right. 

I was trying light painting with my torch but the beam was too narrow and it was not doing a good job.

What happens next? Unbelievably, two 4x4 cars drove past (to top it off, one had a tinnie on the roof!! so far from any water). Their headlights lit the tree perfectly. 

Moral of the story: always expect the unexpected.

This is how they empty the toilets in Tongariro National Park in New Zealand. With a helicopter.

Mt Ruapehu volcano behind.
