Rugby Sevens After Party

The Rugby Sevens wrapped up last night(apparently New Zealand won)  with a street party on Courtneay Place.

The party was supposed to start around 7 so I got there around 730 while it was still light because I wanted to try out Rollei with my Nikon SB80DX Speedlite and once the light drops its pretty much impossible to focus (photos still need to be developed). Lets just say it was pretty dead until 10 when people started surging in from the stadium at the other end of town.

Things started to get good around 11 and I ended up bailing round 12…

Somewhere in the midst of it all one of my developed films went missing from the side pocket of my bag which is pretty gutting especially since I don’t know if it was stolen or if I was just a dumbass and let the pocket open… It was a roll of black and white Ilford Delta 3200 which is a pretty rare film to use and only one place in Wellington develops it so I will give them a call on Monday and see if it turns up… Fingers Crossed.

Anyway here goes a quick selection of shots from D70s… Enjoy



Nikon D70s, 18-70mm Lens, SB80DX Speedlite.
