This quote, by Austrian architect & artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser (1928-2000), seems to me to be appropriate for all TE photographers, even though Hundertwasser was probably referring to paintings. This quote is part of a wall mural in the small Northland town of Kawakawa where the famous Hundertwasser-designed toilet is situated. Hundertwasser, well-known in Austria & Germany, also took out New Zealand citizenship but the only example of his architecture in New Zealand is the interesting public conveniences in the small town of Kawakawa near where he lived when he was in NZ. This mural is not part of the toilets, the mural being a recent addition to the 'artwork' of the town.
A Happy 2014 to you all.

Happy new year! This is an interesting and colorful find that definitely suits TE. I like the bright colors. When I first saw this photo I thought someone has written on this wall, and that it wasn't actually part of the design. It's nice to see the big picture, but also have our eyes open for the fun details. :-)

The colours are fantastic. Great image with a fine POV, DOF and clarity.
