Devil On Stilts

Yet another shot from the Petone Fair… This time a Devil on stilts.

Rolleiflex 2.8 E, Ilford HP5+ 400 ISO Film, CanoScan 9000F Scanner.


Going Slightly Crazy And A Picture Of A Dragon

The start of week two without shooting due to a combination of a back and rib injuries from a miss-spent youth. The weather hasn’t been especially friendly either and the few times I have tried to venture out with either half frame or D70s (yes I have dusted it off, literally) it has either been raining or has started to rain when I was in transit to where ever I was going.

Carrying a digital again has been due to a Fujifilm competition which wont let me enter scanned images…Um don’t they make film too? The first prize is an Fuji X100, which I have to say would be a quite nice camera to carry around to compliment Rollei. It is quite hard to be inspired when it is raining and not shooting 6×6 (everything seems to look better square) but we will see how it goes. It is supposed to be a nice day tomorrow so I might take Sam out in the  push chair and have a look round and see what is up.

I think Sam is going slightly crazy too with not being able to get outside much… She is currently under my desk untying my shoe laces (hopefully she’s not tying them together) and talking a  mile a minute.

Anyway here goes a shot from earlier in the year at the dragon boat festival…

Stilt Walker in Civic Square

One of the few times I have been a little frustrated with my 50mm. Would have been easier to frame the shot with a wide-angle which would have ment I could have got her all in the shot showing how much taller she was than everyone else. Couldnt get back any further without getting other people in front.

Seen at Civic Square in Wellington at the All Whites (NZ Football Team) parade. The name comes from the fact they wear all white uniforms.
