The Beauty of Centre City

Ugliest waterfront building - mitchyyyyy

The Centre City Shopping Centre… – Centre? Centre! Fo’ shizzle! – in New Plymouth features a groovy little home-made slide-show-style movie on its groovy website. Not too surprisingly, they don’t feature many exterior shots of their clever little concrete construction accentuating the coast line.

A superb contribution by mitchyyyyy. Mitchyyyyy? Mitchyyyyy! Fo’ shizzle! Dizzle Bizzle!

More Invercargill Extravaganza - Ralf

This one is not only incredibly great, it would be also a strong candidate for Martin Parr’s book “Boring Postcards”. Well, or at least for its swedish web predecessor, Retroglobe. Well, or at least for the pale rip-off of them both… – us.

Otaki Forks Ruins - Glutnix

And here another Glutnix classic: Supposedly the remains of a house. Supposedly Otaki Forks. Supposedly without a lot of pixel noise and sufficient exposure. But what do I know.
