Gravity and Other Myths

It seems like every photographer in Wellington has had a go at shooting 'Gravity and Other Myths' (part of the Fringe Festival). Not to be outdone, I headed along for their final performance on Saturday night:


1 - lots of hanging about


2 - there's no harness or anything, she's just wrapped up and hanging on (and flying about)


3 - photographically the situation was quite demanding - I had the camera in full manual, and was trying desperately to do a 'steady pan' with the 90mm lens. Flash photography wasn't allowed (which suited me fine!)...

5 - the last segment of the show was rather unexpected


6 - your usual flame on a stick deal... but then...


7 - okay... so, you climb a rope and then set it on fire...

10 - and then start spinning...
