Wellington Rugby Sevens Parade 2009


1 - All the action is in Wellington this weekend, with Waitangi Day, the Rugby Sevens, and Chinese New Year all at the same time... The pre-sevens parade kicked things off today, I was located just outside Civic Square trying to keep an unobstructed view, and capturing some pretty random shots...
