FotC New Zeland Tourism Poster Wallpapers

Postby GeauxTiger » Sat Jun 30, 2007 9:15 pm

Hello all...

I was messing around just now and thought it would be funny to recreate a few of the tourism posters Murray has hanging in his office. They're not exact (since I was at the mercy of what photos I could Google) and they're formatted to be wallpaper...but they're close enough if you wanted something to use until HBO gets with the program and puts something like that on the show's official website.

Full size wallpapers can be found at the link. I didn't do the new one from Episode 2...the one with "NEW ZEALAND...COOL" just yet. I didn't remember if the text was white or something else. I'll have to go back and rewatch it.

Heh. JP beat me to it.

Great work, GT! If I didn't already have some lovely NZ scenery already set as my wallpaper, I'd definitely use it!

Gr67, the lovely and talented Ellen tracked down the elusive gulab jamun for us on another thread. They actually probably would make an enticing wallpaper.

Now that I read the wikipedia on gulab jamun, I realize that I've eaten it. :shock: It was a very, very yummy dessert! :whitey: Like donut holes in a bowl of sugar juice. :P

So have I! They're pretty tasty, though even a little too sweet for me (and I've got a pretty high sugar tolerance).
