Faggs "4 Square" store delivery van, Horopito - Ken Lankshear

Recently we talked about Kiwi nutrients, let’s highlight another facet of New Zealand’s shopping culture now. This limelight moment goes to food retailer Four Square and its (really) wonderful logo design… including the famous – and slightly creepy – “Cheeky Charlie”. Thanks for the great photo to Ken Lankshear!

Jenny M - Lake Taupo

Jenny M. of the lovely german New Zealand Travel blog weltwunderer.de sends this wonderful shot of Lake Taupo. With some stuff in the foreground. I have no idea why anybody would consider this being ugly, given that the picture elements, composition, light and colours work beautifully together with the bacchanalia subtext (alcohol, shadow, plastic bag, the jungle)… – but hey, what do I know.
