Photo Overdose

Abel Tasman National Park
Kayaking in the Abel Tasman National Park on the New Zealand South Island, just a one-hour drive from Nelson, my home town in 2006.

Get your photo overdose right here on! I love the Silverstripe photo gallery module! I could finally upload a large amount of photos from the last 5 years to the new gallery section on this website in no time: about 500 photos in 19 galleries.

I know this is complete overkill, so below is a small(ish) selection.

Melbourne: Brighton Beach
Brighton Beach, Melbourne (2003)

Asakusa, Tokyo, Japan
Pigeons and people in Asakusa (浅草), Tokyo, Japan (2004).

Japan, 2004
The Japanese countryside in early spring 2004. This is right next to the big Buddha statue in Futtsu City, Chiba Prefecture, the so-called Tokyo Bay Kannon (東京湾観音). More pictures from this trip are in the galleries Japan 2004 and Nikko 2004.

Bacharach town centre, Germany
Bacharach, a more than 1000 year old town with a well preserved medieval flare on the stunning Rhine River (2004), close to the Lorelei Rock.

Monet's Garden, Giverny, France
Monet's Garden at Giverny, France. Yuki and I visited this beautiful place on our trip to Paris in 2005.

Saccharine: Harajuku Girls
Saccharine: a girl in Harajuku (原宿), Tokyo, Japan (2005).

A New Zealand Sheep
This is from our very first visit to New Zealand in 2005 at the Waitomo Caves. The prototype Kiwi picture.

The thermal village Whakarewarewa, Rotorua, New Zealand
The thermal Māori village Whakarewarewa (or Te Whakarewarewatanga - o - te - Ope - a - Waihiao) in the geothermal area of Rotorua on the North Island of New Zealand. If you ever happen to be in Rotorua I strongly recommend you to visit this beautiful and friendly living village. This was on our first trip to New Zealand in 2005, just three months before we decided to live in New Zealand.

Picton, Marlborough, New Zealand
Picton, the ferry harbour that connects the North and South Island of New Zealand. We visited Picton a lot of times when we used to live in Nelson (it's a good 2 hour drive). This picture is from our first visit when we arrived in Nelson in December 2005 and discovered the area around.

Nelson at dusk
A nearby hill in the dusk from the balcony of our first home in Nelson in 2005.

Kayaking in the Abel Tasman National Park
Kayaking in the Abel Tasman National Park (2006).

Golden Bay, New Zealand
Beautiful Golden Bay on the New Zealand South Island in 2006, close to the "exit" of Abel Tasman National Park.

Inland Track, New Zealand South Island
A postcard scenery on the way from Hanmer Springs to Nelson on the inland track. More in the New Zealand South Island 2006 gallery.

Venus Fly Trap
A venus fly trap: very efficient (from the Auckland 2006/2007 gallery).

Rangitoto vulcano island, Auckland, New Zealand
The view out of our Auckland home: the vulcanic island Rangitoto, also from the Auckland 2006/2007 gallery

The galleries may keep you busy for a while. I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I will soon be traveling the New Zealand North Island once more with my parents who come to visit us in New Zealand in only three days. I probably will not post for two or three weeks, but you can expect a new North Island Gallery soon. Stay tuned!

That means you'll perceive some fresh features and press access to additional channels where you can win visibility, without having to put to rights sense of some confused, handbook migration process.

The United States called on the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) on September 26 to discuss alleged human rights violations in China’s Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. Washington’s request comes after a recent UN report that warned of possible crimes against humanity in the Chinese territory.

The resolution brought forth by the US was also co-sponsored by the United Kingdom, Canada, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Iceland and Norway. The 47-member UNHRC will vote on the resolution this week, with Western countries apparently afraid that it might not pass. If it does, a debate on the issue will be scheduled for the council's next session in February.
