Cool Places..Twin Peaks, Ohakune

Tabitha and I went to the ski resort town of Ohakune, New Zealand for the first ever time. This is the town with the big carrot, full of skiers during winter. But this was the quiet summer season - but locals have been saying that the opening up of the cycleways around the country have started to kickstart small resort towns, like Ohakune, in the off season. The Twin Peaks reference is mentioned in a commendable way...I have always loved all encompassing WOOD interiors  - who knows why. But the Powderhorn Chateau in Ohakune does it better than anywhere. Loved the place.

Twenty Most Beautiful 2015 [ Pt1 ]

This is the 5th year Streetandcityphotos has compiled a Most Beautiful. I'll separate them into part 1, and part 2 and part 3. It's a little earlier this year, but I am off for 3 weeks to New York. As I have said before, I refer to 'beautiful' in a broader sense; of having some essence, or style, that simply appealed at the opposed to a who's hot list. It's really a snapshot of the streets where I roam across the year..

Manhattan by slow photography

Tabitha and I are heading over to New York for 3 weeks, to cycle, the hang out, to look at art and relax. I am leaving all the digital stuff behind, and taking, as I always do when I head overseas, my one and only film camera - a 1950's Leica M2. It gives really magical & mystical shots, if random shots, as you can see here with images from France.
