Heritage – Daily Post Photo Challenge

IMG_6103

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.

One Word Photo Challenge: Dodge

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.

Gathering : Daily Post Photo Challenge

The theme for this weeks Daily Post Photo Challenge is : Gathering.

The first image is of a Sheep Show in New Zealand. I don’t think I’ve ever seen as many different Sheep in one place before. Each Sheep was different.

The second photo is of a choir on Cunard’s Queen Victoria which rehearsed on each sea day and sang for the other passengers just before our return to Los Angeles last April.

Besides being a gathering of people it’s also a family gathering of sorts because both my wife and my sister were in the choir with me (I’m in the back row). We had a lot of fun and even managed to sing a strange version of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody!
