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!

Ohakune Where Adventure Begins - Richard Joseph

Where adventures begin! Carrot adventures in misty weather, that is! It is my heartfelt pleasure to present this emblematic New Zealand photo. Fruit (well, veggies)! Rain! Silly signage and desperate city slogans! Outstanding!

Gigantic Kiwi Fruit - Dave Smith

It’s impossible to describe the sheer awesomeness of this pre-digital-era photo by Dave Smith. Gladly, I don’t have to.

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.
