Im Looking At You Looking

I have been thinking of getting this type of shot for a while now… unfortunately on the day I decided to try to get it I had my 20 month old daughter strapped to my back in a backpack. This type of shot requires fading into the background, not being noticed etc… Well Samantha was in fine form yelling at the top of her voice and waving a anything that moved and while this was very cute it meant that mostly people were looking at me rather than what I was hoping they were looking at… This was about the only shot I got… Maybe Next time 🙂

Food At The Rugby Sevens

Some more shots from the rugby 7s… This was at about 10pm on Friday night after the final game had finished. As you come down off the concourse there was a Pie Cart and a BBQ serving food to the drunken masses…

I went for a gritty 3200 ISO film to capture a bit of atmosphere rather than blasting in some flash…

Christchurch Earthquake

This happened today at about 1250 in the middle of lunch… Some pics of it here http://www.stuff.co.nz/

Freaky Stuff…

Hearts go out to the people who live there… So close but seeming so far away…

Be Safe…

 


Kids In Trees

I usually don’t take images of kids but couldn’t help myself with this one… The kids were climbing to get a better view of the Rugby 7s fashion show that was going on…

Sunset On top Of a Bunker

Looking out towards the South Island of New Zealand from on top of a World War 2 observation post above the Wellington Airport.

The lights are for shipping navigation around the point and into the harbor… I think… 🙂

Motor Scooter Portrait

The Yellow Moped at the shop next door seems to have been replaced by this one… I have been waiting for weeks for the right light to take its portrait…

A Couple Of Sleepers

A couple of sleepers… The first one is in Civic Square and the second one is trying the time-honored profession of sleep begging on Dixon Street
