Pimp My Rollei

Just had my Rollei pimped today with a Lens hood from legendary Wellington photographer Julian Ward who just happened to have one lying around.

With the damage to the back element of the lens from a previous owner tring to dismantle it with pliers causing flare this should be a great asset!

Awesome! Cheers!

More Knitting Grafitti

The Knitters have been at it again…

The gate on the Alley was replaced this week so this one is no longer there.

A Couple of Sleepers

Cuba Street seems to be a good place for a lie down lately even with all the noise from the massive amounts of road works going on.

Is it just me or does this look kinda uncomfortable?

I love the looks from the onlookers 🙂

Beach Football at Titahi Bay

Went out shooting last night with Fergus to Titahi Bay with the idea of doing some long exposure shots after the sun went down. While we were scouting various locations a game of football started up so we stopped and took some images while the sun went down.

It was lucky we did cause none of the long exposure stuff really came out… You win some and you lose some 🙂

Nikon D70s, 18-70mm Lens, ISO 200.

Random Lone Zombie

Zombies seem to be everywhere these days… This one was spotted at the Capital E Halloween Event for children held at Civic Square. Emily was not very impressed that the zombies were scaring kids (Emily) and we had to leave after only being there a short while 🙂

Finding New Friends

After waiting a couple of weeks for 120 neg pages to turn up I have finally started to develop my backlog of film…Yay! Now all I need is the HP5 to turn up from Australia and things will be back to normal although I am starting to quite like Neopan 400,

Looks like the Vespa from next the shop next door has found a friend

NEX Captures

Yesterday at work I got asked to go get some sample images to print out for the Sony NEX 5 with the 16mm Lens… Apart from being the worst time of day to go shooting on a day where it was bright and sunny here goes some of the shots that wont be used for sample images but better suit my style of street shooting 🙂 I did slightly pimp it out with a Polariser.

Oh and the camera handled better than I thought it would even if the 16mm was a bit wide for my liking for the street stuff.

Yeah there’s a bit of building/roadwork action going on in the centre city at the moment 🙂

Chillin worker styles

“Yep looks like a road”

With a 24mm equivalent it’s quite hard to get a close image 🙂

Sony NEX 5, 16mm Lens.

Book Pusher

Not sure what religion they were pushing (when you only have 5 -10 min a day to get some shots you just don’t have time) but I like the way the guys body language is turned for a quick get away.
