Postcards from Auckland
Sending postcards home remains a key part of travelling in New Zealand, despite the myriad digital communications that we all now use. Postcards from Auckland is part of a series that aims to translate the popularity of postcards into book form.
In this book photographer Bob McCree focuses on New Zealand’s largest and most diverse city, and
he captures all of the key locations and attributes that make Auckland such a desirable city. This includes many photographs of the Waitemata Harbour and its environs – the Harbour Bridge, Princes Wharf, the Viaduct Basin, and the inner city beaches - and then also ranges out into the Hauraki Gulf, with views from the North Shore and Waiheke Island. There are also many shots from the CBD and the inner suburbs, and an evocative range of photos from the iconic west coast of Auckland.
This is the perfect memento for anyone who has enjoyed a visit to Auckland.
