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.

Welcome to Birkenhead Ferry Terminal! - Jack Bowley (Javelin395)

OK, ladies and gentlemen, time to get busy again. Greetings from Birkenhead Ferry Terminal, the place where Bogie and Bergman didn’t kiss goodbye, presumably, but, according to new information provided by reader Mark Fitz, an overwhelming array of sexual activity of all sorts has been conducted. Who would have thought!

Wedding day weather - Mel Hodgkinson

Actually, I don’t know anything about the wedding. Just about the weather that day. It wasn’t that good.

Rainy Peninsula 1 - Chris Ebbert

Chris Ebbert, our contributor and avid photographer, has approximately one hundred gazillion stunningly beautiful New Zealand photos in his Flickr stream. And only 3 that show the ghastly side of New Zealand. Guess which ones we are going to present here…

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.

The Beauty of a Rainy Picton

Rainy Picton - Electropod

Picton’s new city corporate design goes strong on the blues: with a cleverly composed symphony of flags, bollards, bins and – what a great idea! – constant rain the city council ensures that the blues creeps into every pore… well, you get the idea.
