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.
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!
This weeks One Word Photo Challenge (thanks once again to Jennifer Nichole Wells) is Backlit. The photos were taken in New Zealand and South Korea.
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!
