Whats Going On?

Film is great for surprises… I didn’t notice what was going on in this image until I was just about to post it with the set of images from the Performance Arcade from a couple of weeks ago.

So what is happening in this image?… Really I have no idea… Anyone want to have a guess?

Homage To The Alley

As I have mentioned a couple of days ago this Alley has been gated off and the graffiti painted over. A friend sent me THIS ARTICLE which says the whys and hows. I have to say the whys are pretty dumb…

Anyway here goes some shots from the last couple of years…

 

Lots of different Cameras and Lenses and Stuff and Things


Yet More Sleepers

Seems I cant go anywhere these days without catching a couple of sleepers as I go… These are from last weekends roll of film and Im pretty sure I got another couple this weekend as well… May have to make this into its own category after the death of “The Alley”

Death Of An Alley

So for those of you who read this blog regularly (you know who you are) will know that this alley is a source of great photographic material and indeed has its own category. The graffiti changes on a weekly basis and small installations of broken things crop up to be photographed before disappearing hours later.

Well I guess someone got annoyed at the above coolness and possibly the rank smell of urine and empty paint cans which wasn’t so cool and has put up and padlocked gates at either end 😦

Oh Well RIP The Alley…

Fountain

This was a bit of a lens flare and shutter speed test I did the other day. I think Rollei did pretty damn well!

Waiting for customers before the start of the Dragon Boat racing last weekend…

Rollei Police Pan

Panning shots with most cameras can be difficult… When your camera is inverted left to right you pretty much have to wing it.

Still even though I missed most of the car the part I did get was pretty bang on… Might have to try it again.

They were racing up to Manners Street where yet another person had been hit by a bus after then whole road layout change thing from late last year… I have that image for another post.

Mushrooms

Mushrooms spring up in the most unusual places…

Monopod Man

Saw this guy scoping out places to shoot just before a lunchtime concert at Frank Kits Park. They were supposed to be recording a song for the Christchurch Earthquake with a big crowd participation but it didn’t look like too many people turned up and I got bored and wandered off to go shoot elsewhere… I walked back past as they were packing up so basically missed the main event so I wonder if they got a good turnout?
