  • Field Theory: No draught in here,

    And I thought it was called draught beer when it was served from a tap.

    That's the English meaning of the word 'draught'. In NZ it has come to refer to a particular style of beer.

    A group of Austrians have been asking me to recommend any good ales in NZ.

    The Three Boys IPA and Three Boys Oyster Stout would be my two favourite Christchurch ales.

  • Field Theory: Shut Up and Skate,

    I've only ever been introduced to skaters by their assumed identities. It's like meeting the Justice League.

    Yeah, when one of the fresh meat that I photographed mistakenly revealed her real name when I asked it felt like finding out who Superman was.

    I think we need photographer names the next time we photograph roller derby, Mike. How about Shoot Mayhem and Len Stoodehead?

  • Field Theory: The last home game,

    Those are some awesome pics Jed and Mike

    Thanks, Amy.

    Is that the tall girl who never plays? Gee, that strategy worked.

    No, you're thinking of Larissa Harrison. Broederlow is only my height, 9cm shorter than Larissa's 188cm. Yeah, I've never seen Harrison on court. Weird.

  • Field Theory: 25 Things you need to be a…,

    I'm still practicing "maneuvering a car out of a skid". The first time I ended up facing the wrong way in a ditch (my grandmother's cousin's husband pulled my car out with his tractor. Now there was a man).

    The second time I ended up facing the wrong way against a snow bank one metre from the drop off the Mt Hutt road. This prompted me to add "regularly check tread on tyres" to my manly list.

  • Field Theory: Temepara George Has Aqua Toenails,

    I find I am fascinated by how some players play, and I like watching them off the ball as much as when they have the ball. I do the same thing watching basketball. And sometimes rugby, though that tends to be for a different reason.

    While shooting the photographs I spent some time following individual players for a few minutes: my camera was never still for long. It certainly gave me a better understanding of the role of each player in the game.

    Which reminds me, there was a documentary made in the 70s where the cameras followed George Best for a whole Manchester United game. YouTube clip. Fascinating stuff.
