More New Zealand photos

I really enjoyed posting those photos of New Zealand last week, so....here are some more. They are very random, in that they are from all over the country, in no particular order and don't have a theme running through them except that they are decidedly New Zealand. But, that's more than good enough I think.

This is Christchurch Art Gallery. I spent many happy hours there.

 

A view from the Art Gallery towards the Arts Centre, which, I believe, looks very different now having been knocked about quite a bit in the recent earthquake.
