The Beauty of Sheep and Dogs

21/04/2012 at 6:01 am

Together with the Gigantic Kiwi Slice Platform Thingy perhaps New Zealand’s number 1 silly iconic tourist landmark. I just can’t get enough of it… – especially if I happen to stumble over fantastic photos like these.

Part 2 of the collection: “Best of Ugly New Zealand Edition South Island (BOUNZESI)”. Have a lovely weekend, y’all, while deciding if the South or the North wins. For me, it’s clear as Lake Wakatipu.

The Best of Ugly New Zealand – North Island

20/02/2012 at 10:32 pm

People, I’m slowly running a bit low on new material. That means…

1. Time for our gazillions millions thousands quite a few dunno, maybe a couple dozen? three friends to send new material, puh-leese!

2. Time for cheap reruns of lukewarm oldies: let’s start with a lovingly complied collection of the “Best of Ugly New Zealand Edition North Island (BOUNZENI)”. Sounds a bit like a hungarian car brand, if you ask me.

Keep calm, Dunners, I’ll follow up with the “Best of the South” these days.

What a gem! Note the corresponding car in the background, too.

(I’ve boosted the exposure a tad bit for your viewing pleasure. The original photo complies even better with our code of photographic conduct.)
