On the waterfront in Auckland, North Island, New Zealand, this rather individualized woman sold dreams and tickets to ski vacations in Queenstown South Island. Her hair do was festooned with colorful and quirky art pieces.

Just a retired old guy who loves looking for an eclectic mix of subjects to photograph, from people, to places, to concepts, and enjoys all aspects of the hunt, the find, and the shot, plus dabbling in the post production.
