When I was looking through my film in the fridge preparing to go away for 4 weeks holiday I noticed one roll had 9 shots off it already (a big 9 was scrawled on the outside of the film cassette). I ended up using the rest of the film a few weeks ago and when I got it developed I found some picture from the rugby 7’s from maybe 4 years ago.
Anyway here goes a few of them. Gotta love film for getting surprises 🙂
One of the shots I took during the Rugby Sevens competition over the weekend… If you aren’t familiar with Rugby Sevens its a seven aside short rugby tournament which is run over a couple of days… The fans all dress up and it is pretty much one big party…
I have been going through my collection of images lately with an outlook to organise them into sets when I found this image from the Rugby 7’s in February. It was about 4 in the afternoon and this guy had crashed at a bus stop… I’m not sure what he was supposed to be dressed up as.
The second one is blanket man again from last weekend. I love how he is lying across the footpath and people just walk around him.
I guess even superheroes have bad days…
Nikon F5, 50mm F1.8 Lens, Ilford Delta 3200 ISO Film, CanoScan 9000F Scanner.
I am currently waiting for my Rollei to be assessed by a camera repair person (Phil Jacobs in Petone) due to the fact that the shutter has been lagging a bit which I have mentioned in previous posts. Hopefully it just needs a bit of a clean…Fingers crossed.
It feels a bit weird walking around without it and I keep seeing shots that I am missing… Luckily I have just processed 5 films so I have a few images yet to put up 🙂
Anyway here goes an image of Boba Fett doing a live cross from the rugby 7s catwalk…

Here goes some more shots from the rugby 7’s
I think I like 1 and 6 the best…
The rugby Sevens are on in Wellington at the moment. Its one of those great times where people dress up get drunk and want there photo taken.
Up outside the stadium we were getting dark stares because we weren’t taking people’s photos and lots of “thank you” when we did… It was a bit weird
This was taken at the Rugby 7’s after party. It amused me that there was a couple of old ladies wandering around amongst thousands of dressed up drunk young people. unfortunately after I spotted them they headed away from where all the costumed people were so this was the best shot I got.
