Houses – keep an eye out for Hobbits

Cee has asked us for houses for this week’s B&W challenge, and my tongue in cheek is a selection of Hobbit houses from Peter Jackson’s Lord of the rings and hobbit movie set in North Island New Zealand The whole set is a sea of colour so it is quite odd to see it in black and white, but it sort of works. If you are ever anywhere near the set, you really must go. Eat your heart out, Walt!

Real houses with prime views on the Coramandel of North Island New Zealand- quintessential ‘des res!’

Thanks for visiting

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla If you have come as a baker my blog is i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)
