Well after a rather lengthy pause, I’m easing back into my regular schedule. In between times I lost my Mum and went on two lengthy but enjoyable trips.
This has nothing to do with this week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge however which is – Heritage.
The photo illustrates a Maori heritage on a wooden sculpture in Rotorua, New Zealand.
Here are a few photos of Hobbiton the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit film set in New Zealand that I visited last year.
More Hobbit than fairy but what a lovely fairylike place they have conjured up.
This is an entry to the One Word Photo Challenge.
delicious Fish Chowder, more to eat than to drink!
Coffee yes, but with Petit Fours!
Cocktails while waiting for the band to strike the first chord
Drink is this weeks challenge for One Word Photo Challenge.
Anticipation is the subject of this week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge
Without hesitation, I thought of this sequence of photos from our recent trip to New Zealand.
We went to Waiheke Island near Auckland and my wife was super brave and surprised everybody by doing a zip-line with me! You can almost feel the anticipation as she prepares to fly!
Here goes my entry to this week’s One Word Photo Challenge : Dog
People know me as not the best animal friend around in general but I must have seen this challenge coming because I actually photographed a dog on the beach in Napier, New Zealand while on vacation!
Dodge is an unkind word for the people of Christchurch, NZ.
70% of Christchurch was or has needed to be demolished after the earthquake in 2011 and only 40% has been rebuilt.
I saw that the inhabitants of Christchurch are very resilient and have often found temporary solutions to the destruction such as the Re-Start shopping area made with shipping containers.
This is my entry to this weeks OWPC.
Spending the day in Christchurch on a day trip from Akaroa here on the South Island of New Zealand.
It’s an amazing sunny day and an unforgettable experience.
It’s only a week until the end of our vacation! I’m missing writing but it’s not easy to fit in a cruise and post it due to wifi constraints.
Here is a glimpse of The Fjordland National Park, New Zealand.
See you soon!
Cherry on Top
Baby Orca with Mother
The Wave at Lincoln Cathedral
New Zealand Green Lipped Mussels
Open Eyed Koala
A very interesting theme (once again) for the Daily Post Photo Challenge. Some of the photos might seem tenuous. To finally eat some New Zealand Green-Lipped Mussels was the Cherry on top of our recent cruise, while to take a photo of an alert Koala is harder than it might seem. They sleep for most of the day! To finally see a part of the poppy display (The Wave) at Lincoln Cathedral was also a welcome sight. Lastly on a Whale watching excursion we were treated to some Orcas and even a baby Orca!
