Hometown New Zealand – Photographs by Derek Smith

Hometown New Zealand is a book of photographs that was published this year.  The photos are by Derek Smith.  They are beautiful shots of some down home places in New Zealand.  That is interesting in itself.

But the fact that the photographer took all these shots while working as a meter reader all over New Zealand makes it even more special.

I selected 3 photos to give you a taste of his work.  Enjoy!


  1. I love it, I think I would enjoy learning more about this fella and his work. Thank you for sharing.

  2. I love the photographs of the little tractor and the corrugated iron roofs. It looks a great book, Carole.

  3. I would have never thought the job of a meter reader being a fun one, until now. I might be a little bit jealous of his job :)
