Hang Time on the Basketball Court

Today I managed to combine 2 of my favourite things, basketball and photography (gold star for me!). I went down to the Tahunanui Primary School basketball court (shout out to my old school!) and played a little ball as I like to do, only today I brought my camera with me so I could take a few snaps. Seeing as I have no friends I had to resort to the good old fashioned auto-timer, which is actually quite good on the Sony NEX as you can set it up to take 3 photos in rapid succession instead of just 1. That feature comes in handy when you’re trying to get the timing right, it took a few shots (pardon the pun) but I managed to make it work eventually. I walked away with some cool pics but this one was my favourite. So was it really hang time of just trick photography? I guess you’ll never know…

A Lone Figure on Tahunanui Beach

I love aimlessly walking along Tahunanui Beach when I’m back in Nelson, especially when the tide is out and you can walk almost endlessly towards where the water would otherwise be. I took a few photos while I was down there today and this one stood out, a lone figure on Tahunanui Beach.

A Sunset Landing in Nelson

My Dad’s house in Nelson is in Tahunanui, close enough to the airport to see planes flying in to the Nelson airport (probably one of the biggest in the world) but thankfully far away enough for it to be quiet. I snapped this plane coming in for a spectacular sunset landing tonight, no doubt the passengers were enjoying the view as much as I was.
