Windy In Wellington

Been a bit windy here in Wellington lately…

Death of a Motorcycle

I guess motor scooters aren’t supposed to go on BMX tracks.

I never found out if it was stolen of if the owner just got angry and destroyed it.

Id like to point out that I use the term “motorcycle” pretty loosely here 🙂

This is a good example of some scanning machines not being able to handle the grain from a film like Ilford Delta 3200 very well. I need to re-scan these so the grain is less mushy.

Motorcycle Protest Rally

A couple of months ago there was a big protest about the government putting the ACC levy up for motorcyclists.

I thought this would be a good time to go snap off some shots although when I got there it was a bit intimidating to say the least.

When I asked the guy on the left said cool but the guy on right wasnt in to it so I snapped the shot and left quickly. I especially liked all the gun club badges on the jackets… Possibly not people to mess with.

Really bad lighting on this one but once again I asked and one of them said cool. After I had taken the shot they asked me which paper I was working for 🙂 . Sometimes my Nikon F5 gives me some serious street cred.

Mostly I just liked this guys helmet which looked alot more fashionable than protective, also cool bike.

All images shot on Nikon F5 with 50mm f1.8 between f8 and f11 with Ilford Delta 400 ISO film. Sunlight was directly overhead with no clouds which made for very contrasty images.
