CHALLENGE WINNER in the Members Choice – Unusual Shaped Buildings Challenge in the Old Farts of Red Bubble Group, 25th May, 2014

Featured in the Sculpture Group, 5th January 2014

The information centre in Tirau, which is a small town in the Waikato region of the North Island of New Zealand, southeast of Hamilton. The town is characterised by many local art works forged out of discarded corrugated iron. Some of the shops feature corrugated iron sculptures. The information centre is completely covered in this material and is shaped like a giant dog. The adjacent Big Sheep Wool Gallery is shaped like a sheep.

Camera used: Pentax K30

I live in the UK and in 2011 when I joined Red Bubble,started experimenting with different settings and angles. I enjoy finding suitable pictures of flowers, Scotland, reflections, lamps and seats and have now branched out into different subjects.
In 2013 I finally realised my dream of visiting Australia and New Zealand. Whilst there I purchased a Pentax camera so have been able to expand my portfolio of flower macros among other new and exciting subjects.

    great shot! We passed through there this past January while visiting New Zealand, some fun structures in town!

  • Absolutely – we only did a “whistle-stop” visit to get some lunch but I was fascinated by these.
