I'm in Seatoun, you? Yes people seem to be selling there gear left, right and center, and I seem to be the idiot buying it all! :rolleyes:

Still as long as there's developer around I should be OK!

Hi

There's a few of us around in Wellington. I'm in the northern suburbs. I've a variety of kit up to 4x5, but mostly shoot with old MF folders.

I have a couple of shots in my APUG gallery from Wellington. Plus a few more here (http://www.flickr.com/photos/mad2cv/) and here (http://pch.fotopic.net).

Oh, NZ, a world away, and just across the Tasman...
A little OT, but today I finished my gallery wall titles for Ilfochrome Classic framed prints of NZ/South Island: Southern Alps/Lake Mathieson; Matai Falls/The Catlins; McClean Falls/The Catlins, Wairarapa Beach, Doubtful Sound, Haast Pass...several others coming. These are from my 2006 21-circumnavigation of South Island. Next visit is November this year concentrating on North Island. If I wasn't pressed for organising so much other local/interstate travel up to August (I have a 4-week sortie Darwin-Broome-Darwin mid-July) I'd jump over The Ditch to Auckland and join you all! :(

I reckon it's a really, really great idea for an enterprising APUGger in N or S should start a dedicated film group and get all the formats working on the scenery with weekend "field workshops" especially in autumn, with scenery that is really is to die for (even when it is raining, as it is in all of my images!). You bet I'd make every endeavour to join in!!

I come from the Isle of Wight, England. We call the rest of England the north island!

You guys suck all the heat out of the air, we get left with the rain...

Or is it more that the air coming across the Tasman starts out nice and dry, sucks up all that water like a big ole' sponge, but it's still happy until it hits the $**%@% Waitakeres... Tell me, why did they put viewing platforms up there when all it ever does is rain?

Your guess was right, although nothing to do with the forum name, which has been a nickname for years. I'm originally from the UK :)
