Im Back And Another Sleeper

Its been a funny year… A couple of weeks back my monitor decided to die on me hence there hasn’t been any posts up for a while but a friend has loaned me one til I can get mine fixed (Cheers Mal!)

What better theme to start back with than another sleeper… Enjoy 🙂

Airport Sleeper

I haven’t had much luck finding sleepers lately, although with the weather warming up I’m pretty sure they will start coming out again… Couldn’t resist this one at the airport 🙂

Things To Do While Your Rolleiflex Is Away Being Repaired #5

Catch Up On Things You Meant To Do Last Year.

This was a series I did last year. Every time Samantha went to sleep in the car I took a photo of her with my Canon half frame camera. I always meant to put them together and this is a bit rough but there you have it… They were taken over a 6 month period.

I am starting to get Rollei withdrawl and walking round with my F5 just isn’t the same 😦

Train Sleeper

I went on a train adventure with my girls and a friend in the school holidays and wouldn’t you know it someone fell asleep just across the carriage.

I couldnt resist 🙂

Sleeper And Sculpture

I’ve seen this guy sleep here before… Not sure what the appeal of sleeping on stone under the watchful eye of a stone pig is…

Sleeper, Reader and Two Birds

It seems like it has been raining forever so I cant even remember when I took this shot, probably a couple of weekends ago.

The main thing I liked about this one was the two seagulls perched on the heads of the two birds 🙂

Coffee Fail

I haven’t seem many sleepers about recently so and I had to grab this one quickly as a member of staff was hovering nervously in the background who had obviously been told to move this guy on :)… Guess the coffee didn’t work so good.

Parliament Grounds Sleeper

Sleeper On Cuba

With the weather being occasionally nice the sleepers come out of the woodwork… Its amazing what they can sleep through since there was a busker not more than 50 metres away getting the crowd to clap along and generally being noisy.

Sleeper In The Sun

I loved all the lines in this one at the back of Te Papa (national museum).

Sleeper And Sunblock

I have to say that this is the most prepared sleeper that I have found so far. He was pretty much covered in sunblock which almost made him look like a sun loving zombie 🙂

Bus Stop Sleeper

Sleeper on Courtenay Place a couple of weeks ago…

Sleepers Are Back

With the weather warming up sleepers seem to be coming back out of the woodwork.

Sleeper Circa Theatre

Sleeper outside the Circa Theatre in a warm spell before all the current snow.

Sleeper and Poem

I realised I haven’t posted a sleeper shot in a while. To be honest they have been a bit thin on the ground with the cold winter weather. The fine spell has meant that they have started to appear again.

Sleeper On The Waterfront

This was one of the reasons I wasn’t too worried about getting the Slut Walk (yesterdays post) all confused since I would have missed this sleeper if I had…

Sleeper?

This one is possibly a cheat as I’m not really sure if this guy was asleep or just lying in the sun…

Sleeper In The Rain

Not a particularly good sleeper but I couldn’t get a better angle since it looked like he had a friend nearby who wasn’t asleep.

It pretty much sums up things at the moment with it raining the last 3 Saturdays when I usually get these shots.

Happy 20th Isobel and Sleeper

I have been trying to get an image of this piece of graffiti for about a week  (it’s gone now) but with the light I hadn’t had any luck with framing it up. Saturday I noticed this sleeper but when I first saw him there were a whole bunch of people drinking next to him who I thought might be his friends so I decided not to shoot it since drunk friends usually take an exception to people taking images of their passed out comrades.

I went round the block and came back to find the so-called friends just leaving so managed to get this shot. I could have got closer but liked this composition best as it incorporated a piece of graffiti (now gone) as well as the sleeper themselves.

I have no idea who Isobel is…

Sleeper On Courtenay Place

 

 

Spotted this one as I was driving past and had to park the car and go back to get them. I ended up taking about 4 shot before wandering away 🙂
