Protest on Cuba Street about prisioners being held at Guantanamo Bay
Pigeons roosting near the back entrance of where I work.
Possibly needs a bit of straightening but what the hey…
Minding the Nest
Nikon F5, 50mm f1.8 Lens, Ilford HP5+ 400 ISO Film.
Not as dead as the last one
Dont you just love it when your walking along (admittedly in a cemetery) and you go “Hey, that dead looking flower is pretty cool, I just happen to have an extension tube and a 50mm on my F5, This could be a cool image”
And it was True Story
Thistle at the Cemetery
Flash situated above the head of the thistle just out of frame in order to have more light fall-off.
Guess no one wanted it any more…
Nikon F5, 19-35mm lens, Ilford HP5 400 ISO film
Located in Central Otago, New Zealand, this is an area that was extensively gold mined at the end of the 1800’s.
Its kinda impressive to look at since you can see how high the land used to be and this was done without machinery.
There are several mine shafts as well as the general sluicing areas
An old partially burned out house in Tapanui… Dont think it is there anymore.
Borrowed a swing lens camera a couple of years back and took it to the cemetery across the road from where I live just as it was getting dark loaded with Ilford Delta 3200 ISO film (one of my favourites). Even though the sky is still blown out the images have a bit of a surreal feel due to the lack of any shadows.
Spent 6 hours in a darkroom on Wednesday. Managedto print these images at 12 x 16 inches on some heavy weight gloss RC paper.
Hopefully I will get to go again in a week or so andf print the other 5 – 7 images that will hopefully make up an exhibition.
Samantha is currently working on a couple of molars as well as a coupler of eye teeth. She has pretty much stopped eating solids and is relying mostly on breast milk. This means that she is waking every couple of hours at night because she is hungry and mostly grumpy during the day because Amanda is at work and only feeds her once at lunch time.
Emily is excited about going to see her cousin Alex this weekend after missing her birthday last weekend due to a vomiting bug.
At least no-one is sick…Touch Wood!
Luc the cat comes to visit on rainy days… Not sure why.
