FIVE SHOTS FROM NEW ZEALAND

I was down there for a few hours a few weeks ago. In passing, I took a few shots. Really need to organize a holiday there.

A racing vessel I would like to ride in/on.

A boat I would not like to ride on. Seen too many “lost at sea fisherman” movies.

Auckland’s CN tower.

A Chinese ship that caught my eye, and the eye’s of the local newspapers. Spy ship?

The Auckland skyline. Beautiful city.

Need to get there for longer than 24 hours ….

A FEW MORE iPHONE PHOTOS

What you don’t want to see during a Tokyo snow storm when you need to get to Narita to catch a plane.

The duck that I saw when I made my plane to Sydney through a snowstorm.

Fuji-san through my iPhone. I had my 5D, my 70-200m AND a 2X extender at the office this week and do you think I could get a good clear shot of the mountains during the daytime? Nope.

I spent 36 hours in Auckland, New Zealand recently sans a real camera .. so I snapped a few with the iPhone as I made my way around the harbour.

I don’t like the fact that Qantas is One World and not Star Alliance. Every time I fly them I feel like I am losing points … Good luck flying anything else in Australia.

I found this on a university paper when I was cleaning out our basement last summer. LOL.

From a golf tournament. I grew up a Calgary Flames fan. Love the moustache Lanny.

I don’t miss Canada very much. Friends and family. My morning hockey league. Certainly not the snow. And living on a golf course and golfing with my family whenever we wanted .. that was a nice perk. No .. that is not my pink cart. Mine is blue.
