I finally got a chance to pass through Christchurch earlier in the year for the first time since the major earthquake of 2011.
I have to say it was a bit strange walking through the central city where only around 1 in 5 buildings are still standing even after 5 years.
I remember going to concerts in Christchurch, not getting accommodation for the night, and just wandering around until the bus left back to Dunedin in the morning…

Here goes some shots from last weekends shoot with Melissa, Alicia and Renee.
These are from my F5 that was loaded with Ilford Delta 3200 Film and were possibly the only images that really looked like I saw them in my head. I only started using it near the end of the shoot rather than reloading my RZ67 and Rolleiflex.
Sometimes you just cant really beat using film 🙂

A couple of polariods from Saturdays shoot with Melissa, Alicia and Renee. The second one had a bit of a light leak from the back not being attached properly but I still like it 🙂

A couple of vaguely problematic shots from some new places in Wellington… I have been wandering a bit further a field looking for good places to sit and wait for stuff to come to me… The first one has potential but I think the second one is a bit busy, I might have to try it from a different angle… Both shots from The Terrace.
One of the many stairways down from The Terrace onto Lambton Quay.
I like how the guy on the left is looking straight at me and the other two are ignoring me…
A couple more Half Frame panos, this time of a couple of different cemeteries.
The top image is from the cemetery overlooking the Terrace in Wellington and the other is at Karori Cemetery also in Wellington.
