    It's easy to get trapped with a lot of daily work, which makes travel something hard to do, yet almost every week or long weekends I try to go as far as I can just to get to know the island (how I call NZ) a bit better. And by wandering through maps and local newspapers, I came across Kawhia, which is a little Māori town, a few hours down south west of Auckland in the Tasman sea coast...

    Thank you guys so much! appreciate it. Kawhia, it is a really small town but with great friendly people. And NZ is full of photo opportunities.

    Beautiful black and whites (as always) Chris, glad you got a chance to visit somewhere new.

    And you're just trying to ruin me, huh? Making me fall in love with the 35mm Summilux until no other 35mm will satisfy! Hahah :tongue:
