Walking Ad

A novel idea, a guy with a projector in Queen St advertising Beck’s beer. It’s funny because behind his back Telecom is doing the same but advertising their new XT mobile network, projecting images on Auckland Town Hall, looks really cool.

Empire State Building

North sign covered wtih ice at the Empire State Building observation deck

The Empire State Building is again the tallest building in New York since September 2001.

Looking at the photos and GTA4 screenshots side by side I realised that Liberty City is a far cry copy of New York City. The density of the buildings, the position of the landmarks, the scale of Manhattan are far from reality.

Coliseum

Handstand amongst the ruins of Coliseum in Rome

Coming from down under has consequences, you just have to go upside down. When I was up in a proper antipodean position I heard a long whistle like the one that policemen use. May be it was a coincidence but just in case I quickly jumped down to promptly disappear amongst the Roman ruins. :-)

Let’s pretend it’s a kiwi bird egg :-)

Sounds of early morning in Abel Tasman National Park, South Island, New Zealand.
Insects chirring, birds twittering, flies flying, sheep awakening.
59 seconds before the crack of dawn.

Flying Over Clouds in New Zealand

April 10th, 2009 23:32

Airplane flying over clouds with a mountain snowy peak in the background

I made that banner for my blog – a plane flying over clouds and a mountain in the background. It’s a collage of two photos. The photo of the plane was taken in Makarora, South Island, New Zealand when I was on Christmas holidays in Dec 2006 – Jan 2007. There is a small airfield in Makarora. I took some photos and a video of gliders launched from the airfield.
The photo of the snowy peak mountain was taken from Mt Ruapehu in Jan 2008. The snowy peak is Mt Taranaki (Egmont) which is about 130km away from Mt Ruapehu. The sky was so clear that Mt Taranaki was clearly visible with a naked eye.
