MotoGP

Friday at the MotoGP. Always a great atmosphere and amazingly for the island, the weather was absolutely fantastic. No wind – which is very rare – so with the sun shining and about 25 degrees it was perfect. This of course makes for very contrasty conditions, but i managed to get a lot of shots of Rossi and a few of Stoner from various parts of the track. Here are a few quick shots of the day and will post some of the better ones in my Movin and Groovin file once i get a chance to sort them. It looks like race day is going to be windy with a chance or rain, while Stoner looks like he has it won already.

Polaroid

The Impossible Project has given thousands of Polaroid owners a reprieve from rendering their cameras useless.
A group of former employees have started the project to save this pre-digital instant imaging company from the scrap heap. While the film is still horrendously expensive (8 images a pack for $28), for certain projects or for those with an interest in pre-digital photographic technology, this reprieve has allowed people to continue to use their cameras. I recently bought a low end polaroid 636 close-up and three packs of film to experiment with. I am currently evaluating projects worthy of my 24 initial shots! Polaroid cameras can still be found very cheaply on ebay, starting at around $20, but with the more sought after SX70’s going for closer to $100.
I will post some shots here once i have found my project idea.

Docklands Rising

Vertical seems to be the way to go at Docklands. I love all the elements that are coming together in the area.
Cranes, light poles, buildings and the ever present columns of the Bolte bridge as a backdrop.
