GCSB Bill Protest Wellington

Well it looks like its been a while since I have posted anything…

I went to the GCSB Protest in Wellington last Saturday along with my trusty Rolleiflex 🙂 Only just started scanning the shots today and so far this one stands out…

In hindsight it is a bit weird that I went to a protest about being watched and listened in on… Street photographer and all 🙂

Whats The Time

Its been a while since I have been out street shooting (or even shooting at all) and I am surprised how out of practice I really am…

Must get out more!!

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 🙂

Expose Yourself

Unfortunately the sign that says “Expose Yourself” is partially obscured 😦 Damn it!

Things To Do While Your Rolleiflex Is Away Being Repaired #7

Shoot From The Hip Olympus XA3 Styles

Technically Rollei’s back and fixed but here are some more shots from when they were away…

This is usually the camera that stays in the car for those “just in case” moments but it got out and about the week and a half Rollei was away.

Faces In The Sun

I think the guy in the poster spotted me taking this one 🙂

Bubble Girl

This week is rapidly turning into a week of retrospective…

This from 2010 and the last Cuba Street Carnival…

Hugs In The Rain Under A Giant Umbrella

While lining up this shot to catch people walking across the crossing these two came along and hugged right in front of me…

Oh and yes it is raining again here today.

Weather Bomb

A couple of weeks back Wellington had a “Weather Bomb”, essentially this meant gale force winds and rain, flights were cancelled and the ferries stopped running. Not the sort of weather to take out a Rollei so took out the F5 with a 24mm Lens.

Iphone Umbrella

I’m pretty sure you don’t need to download an ap for this…

Electric Busker

I usually don’t take images of buskers unless I give them money but this one was too good to miss 🙂 Will have to track them down and give them a copy…

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.

Movember Street Shoot On Cuba Street

So I finally got round to busting out my ringflash with my Rolleiflex and going up to people in the street and asking to take their image. I have to say that not a single person said no which after building it up in my head for such a long time was pretty damn cool.

If one of these shots is of you… Cheers and enjoy!

Ducks On Cuba Street

Walked past a couple of ducks on Cuba Street a few days ago… Maybe they were waiting for the shops to open…

Not entirely sure what was going on here…

Book Reading On Cuba Street

Before the Rugby World Cup Wellington was a much more peaceful place where people knew how to interact with each other in interesting ways that made for good photography. Now with lots more people around you would think this would happen even more, but no… Lots more people and not a shot to be found, well maybe a few :).

Shooting The Shooters: Video

Not sure what the box in front of the camera was for… Maybe some kind of pinhole effect?
