Nelson 4 - Travelling Light

Today it is my deep pleasure to present you the first photo by “TravellingLight”, a team of incredibly talented “partners in crime” from New Zealand.

In their works, they document New Zealand with a wonderful sensibility, often precisely catching this bitter-sweet spot between beauty and blandness of the country.

Expect more from Travelling Light in the future!

The Beauty of Clippy’s Exile

A giant knot - Robyn Gallagher

Obscure secrets of the Microsoft Corporation, Part 14563: soon after the infamous MS Office help Clippy started drinking and, a bit later, to smoke crack with the Thesaurus, it was deported to a penal colony named New Zealand. There it fades away, deformed and deranged, in front of a ministry, cynically titled Department of Conservation. It’s a mad, mad world!

Nelson Central Post Office Building - Murray Neill

On his very elegant website, Murray Neill offers an antidote to us: it could be also described as “Beautiful New Zealand.com”.

The photo above is from a cool series of aerial shots, taken with a kite. But even all this talent and technical equipment can’t turn Nelson’s infamous Central Post Office / City Council building into a beauty queen. Good for us! :)

The Beauty of Nelson’s Bridges

Patricia Laurenson worked with a briefing resembling one of the ideas behind this blog: “My creative theme was ‘bad 1950s photos that would have been thrown away’”. Mission accomplished!

By the way: we also accept bad photos from the 1960–2010s, in case there was any doubt…
