A typical oil painting motive dripping with commercial schmaltz. (New Yorkers will know what schmaltzy means)

Sorry, but one gets sucked in when you see it and you have a camera in your hand.

Nice photo, but I would like it more, if the red sail boat wasn't the main focus.

Thanks Ken,

That's why I said "A typical oil painting motive dripping with commercial schmaltz".

Pictures of local Mountain Lakes on display in souvenir galleries along tourist shopping strips; I know from reliable sources will always sell better if there is a boat in the picture. (And nice clouds)

Cheers

My cousin is in an arts school, and her teacher is known to comment on her work that she doesn't like by saying something like: "OK this is for the tourists..."

Thanks for the reply.

Now I know where some of the pictures which are sold to tourists come from. And a lot of them are not bad either.

Cheers

Hi

It is one of the nicest places one can imagine, particularly the South Island, if only the frequent earthquakes would leave it alone.
But it has not stopped me from visiting this little Paradise as often as I can.

Cheers.

Acid sense of humour with a liberal dose of sarcasm - my kind of humour !

One never knows - is one insulted or complimented. Few people have the gift to pull it off, but you definitely got it.

I didn't want to pollute your thread with some of my tourist pics of our trip to Queenstown and Dunedin last year or an earlier trip to Christchurch and Akaroa.
