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.

TELPortfolio - Carter Fountain

A fantastic addition to our collection of oddly cropped, dark and heavily zoomed-in fountains. I think fountains and monstrosities are clearly becoming my favorite tags. More fountain fun herehere and here.

Fountain - 1YSL

New Zealand and its fountains… a love-hate relationship. Strong on the hate side, but at the same time also… not very warmhearted. See also here.
