Falling Water.

My contribution to the Wits End Weekly Photo Challenge Falling Water.

I was considering some of the birds and mammals I have photographed in the rain before deciding to go with a couple of shots of a nearby waterfall. Despite now living close to the waterfall these shots were taken in 1985 when I spent part of the summer in Ontario.

The Right Paw.

My contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge¬†Hands, Feet or Paws.

I thought of a shot of a Racoon that wandered into the yard one afternoon. After getting some shots I started trying for something a little different. So for one of the shots I focused on the animal’s front paw.

I did a monochrome conversion, blurred the background and added a vignette to focus attention on the paw.

Night Hours.

The new Tuesday Photo Challenge is Night.

I had a few ideas for the challenge before thinking of some of my motorcycle endurance racing shots taken in the middle of the night. This set is from the 1982 Le Mans 24 hour motorcycle race in France. Most of the shots feature Team Bike, the team I was there to cover.
