Auckland, New Zealand, Daily Photo Blog

When you live in a country known for its natural beauty and pastoral countryside, it can be hard sometimes to appreciate the beauty of the urban landscape where most of us actually live.

For about 6 months I've been visiting an amazing photoblog called Auckland Daily Photo by a Lachezar Karadzhov about whom I know absolutely nothing except he takes some amazing photographs. According to the site he was a finalist in the Best Oceanian Photoblogs 2007 competition for his Lachezar's photo_notes site, and I find this easy to believe.

With a name like Auckland Daily Photo the content should be fairly obvious although he does sometimes include photos from other parts of the country. He publishes a photograph nearly every day and he's been doing it for around two years. To date, the photo I like best is one from April called The corner that shows a cyclist at the corner of Alex Evans and upper Symonds Streets. He's manipulated the photo to enhance the brilliant hue of the advertising posters and made the rest of the photo black and white, except for the baleful red glare of two traffic lights.

Well worth a browse and one of the few non computer sites I have on my regular browse list.

I have no connection with the site or its owner. It's just one of of my bookmarks.
