NZ vintage domestic architecture - wood & corregated iron

Thanks for this personal and vivid tour of New Zealand through your photos. I especially love seeing the botanical garden, and this post of domestic architecture; gorgeous color on those weathered surfaces, a charming line-up of mailboxes.

Its been such a pleasure to document the trip through images while it's fresh Altoon. Thank you for your comments.
Once I started I realised I was soon not going to have much i am making the most of this moment!
I used to travel with journals and would write as I went along and for years I abandoned the camera altogether - drawing when possible, watercolours... writing a lot.
Now i have grown used to bringing some of the personal to the public through blogging it has become the more feasible way to go. Photos have somewhere to go now...and there is no pile up of photos that cost lots of money to print!
I love being somewhere so unfamiliar that ones eyes and mind are fully engaged and looking. thinking, gleaning... all the time!
Its helping a bit with the shock of being back - the collision of realities!

Nz feels like an experience of green Nicola,
every possible hue and shade!
