    So a couple of weeks ago we went on a little road trip for like a week to some random rural places here in New Zealand, touring as much as possible.

    Half way to our destination we found this "Smash Palace" place literally in the middle of nowhere. so we stopped by to see "whats up" and decided to do this little series about it.

    We also knew that this also works as a museum and as a location for movies here in New Zealand. And it makes sense why...

    all shot with the P12-35 and S7.5

    I like it . BUt I like the content inside the photos more.

    I recall that telephone is at least 50 years old.
    Photography is not only the artistic talent. Sometimes
    it works as a documentary .... thanks for sharing and bring back
    memories.
