The Best of Ugly New Zealand – South Island

24/02/2012 at 8:24 pm

Part 2 of the collection: “Best of Ugly New Zealand Edition South Island (BOUNZESI)”. Have a lovely weekend, y’all, while deciding if the South or the North wins. For me, it’s clear as Lake Wakatipu.

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.

Back of Cuba St - Caroline Glass

News from our reader Caroline Glass: still Wellington, but this time the fenced back of Cuba Street.

Caroline’s concrete symphony for 3 bicyclists can be found here. Thanks again, Caroline!

Motueka 2 - Travelling Light

A shot for true New Zealand connoisseurs: green pastures, sheep, fences, corrugated steel, barrels, yummy fruit (in the making). Carefully composed and captured by the indispensable Travelling Light.

While we are it, have you seen the sheep cyclone? Sheep Cyclone Video on MSN.

Motueka River Valley - Travelling Light

Speaking of skydiving: this is perhaps the type of rural arrangement you don’t want to encounter. Mad scientists – that was yesterday. Prepare for the MAD GARDENERS!

Hollyford River - Michael Dawes

Another quiet masterpiece by the eagle-eyed Michael Dawes. More of the same strange estate here.

Apple Sign 1989 - Travelling Light

“Apple – T – rain bow – trees – kiwi mansion”? I don’t get this rebus… anyway, classic 1989 NZ vintage awesomeness by the always overachieving Travelling Light.

The Beauty of Stalking

Admittedly, I was a bit lazy recently. At least here. But now I’m back. Let’s kick off Ugly New Zealand’s reanimation with this oddly specific park…

Owen Stalker Park, Woodend, Canterbury - Jane Vial

A wonderful contribution by the attentive Jane Vial. Just leaves the question where to stalk all the other people…

Kaiteriteri 1989 - Travelling Light

A japanese car in 1989’s Kaiteriteri. Have a look at the Google Maps location to find that nothing has changed, except the colour temperature. Quite reassuring.
