A Z3 swings around from Flinders Lane onto Market Street.

Some idea of where Carlaw Park is in relation to the city

In 1977, the Auckland rep team beat Australia, England and France in consecutive weeks in an unprecedented performance by a rep side, considering the NZ national side had trouble being all three of those nations.

Last year the Warriors honoured that team by playing in a replica of the Auckland rep strip.



I personally wish they'd always play in that jersey.
Ahh, right. Holy shit, that's an amazing performance. Though I didn't know the French were much into league! How on earth did we have trouble beating them?

And I agree on the uniform matter.

The French apparently used to kick arse in league, and it's still wildly popular in parts like the Catalans.

Apparently league in France was dealt a rather harsh blow by the Vichy Regime, who took their assets and gave them over the rugby union, and i've been told playing league was banned there.

And yet they were still fairly good in 1977.

I still wish they'd play in the Auckland strip. It's SuperWin.

Two Z3s on Market Street pass each other as they cross Flinders Street.

This is the site of that arty/botched night shot I shared earlier.

That, uh, would be pretty freaky.

I must admit one reason I'm not in too much of a hurry to buy a really good camera for night photography is I don't want to draw attention to myself at late night with some obvious wealth. I usually take off my iPod when I get off trams.

The Overflow, outside the Olympic Stadium in Sydney.

The fountain is actually what was used as the cauldron for the flame during the Sydney Olympics.

I'm glad i have no good reason to be in the dodgy parts of Auckland late at night.

Gah, this is one big stadium.




And you haven't lived until you've seen an event from 3/4s of the way up the top tier.
