For some weird reason shots of sleeping people seem to happen in sets of two. These two images were taken within about 2 minutes of each other.
Nikon F5, 50mm f1.8 and 80-200 f2.8 Lenses, Ilford HP5+ 400 ISO Film, CanoScan 9000F Scanner.

Me being an import as such (form the uk). I feel the street sleepers of wellington that look like regular guys and not like bums are a shining example of how safe this city is and how safe the people in it feel. Its hard to sleep somewhere unless you feel 100% safe.
If there is to be a wellington flag, we now know what image to put on it. Some bloke blaked out on a park bench 😀

Must be something in Wellington, can’t say I’ve seen much sleepers other than bums in Guyana 🙂
I like the wall in the first one, but something about the water-front in the second draws me to it more.

Its getting harder to find them now we are heading into winter but the only thing I can come up with is that people feel safe enough to pass out pretty much anywhere. It is quite an odd phenomenon.
