Highly Commended Entry in the 2012 Christchurch City Libraries Photo Hunt, PS-PH12-Eimg364.jpg CC-BY-NC-SA 3.0 NZ

“Dad Peter, Mum Norma and Paul, together with a family friend, share a picnic by the car in the vicinity of Christchurch, in 1965.”

The judges commented “I reckon every family has a version of this shot – the picnic by the car. This is a classic example of that most Kiwi of photos.”

“Jandals and biscuit tins. And isn’t a Christchurch picnic always more comfortable with the easterly–sheltering qualities of the family car to keep things cheerful? ”

Christchurch City Libraries has been running an annual Photo Hunt in conjunction with the city’s Heritage Week since 2008.  The 2016 Photo Hunt is running again from 1 – 31 October. During the month of October we will be posting a series of images from earlier Photo Hunts.
