Northland Classic

Following Dawn’s theme of ‘old homes" here is my version of another Kiwi Classic, this one from Northland in the North Island... I think this home is still being lived in.

Northland region starts north of Auckland and stretches to the northern tip of the North Island and boasts the country's warmest weather and a wealth of natural attractions including kauri forests, long sandy beaches and isolated coves and islands.

The area was one of the first parts of the country to be settled by Europeans and includes the site where the Treaty of Waitangi was signed.

The Bay of Islands is the most popular destination in Northland. Other popular attractions include scuba diving at the Poor Knights Islands, off the coast from Whangarei, and driving along the 90 Mile Beach to Cape Reinga at the northern most tip of the North Island.

Janice.. hi
Even the 'negative' has a right to be seen
Mormaly we are used to your beautifull
flowers and landscapes.. but this is part of life
to: Junk. sharp and good colors !

Hello Janice :)
On NewZealand even the junky staff looks better than anywhere else :)) Looks so friendly with the green grass :)) Nice shot!

Like John says, it is good to see the good and the bad, This is a sight you see all over,

pd how are your roses,

Comparing to some of our squatter camps this is still a good house. I'm joking now but it is sad to see where some people live. But strange as it is some people prefer to live like this. Interesting photo and different.

This photo needs a man in his mid 50s with a tatty old swanndri, jandals, thick glasses and a very long beard, to make it complete!

Seriously... it's a photograph that draws attention to the contrasts we see around us every day. "Beach residences" can be quite quirky and interesting. You've captured the spirit of this quite well - Thanks!
