Past Squares #28

January Squares: Headlight

January Squares: Headlight

Team Bike entering the start/finish straight shortly before midnight during the Le Mans 24 motorcycle endurance race in April 1982.

A look back at some of my personal favorite square photos from previous months of squares. Some were popular, some not so popular at the time.

This was a post in Words containing Light Squares Month and is my day 28 contribution to Becky’s October Squares on the theme of Past Squares.

One Word Sunday

Mobile

I had a few ideas for Debbie’s One Word Sunday: Mobile prompt.

I forgot those ideas when I remembered that it’s the Le Mans 24 hour motorcycle endurance race in France this weekend.

So a trip to the archives for a photo of Team Bike entering the start/finish straight shortly before midnight during the 1982 Le Mans 24 hour motorcycle endurance race.

Catching People Unaware

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Catching People Unaware prompt.

I had a couple of ideas for the challenge before thinking of my photo of the track invasion at the end of the Le Mans 24 hour motorcycle race. I edited all the digital copies of the slides recently which is probably why it came to mind.

This is my contribution to the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: In Transit.

Once again I am playing fast and loose with the prompt with photos before or after some form of travel.

No longer in transit. There was no warning signs saying that the road was impassable. Photographed near Raymore, Saskatchewan, Canada.

Monochrome Monday

Monochrome Monday: 18th May 2020

Monochrome Monday travels back to the Le Mans race circuit in France in the early 1980s as I continue the exploration of my black and white negative files.

This is Team Bike leaving the pits after a nighttime pit stop. Photographed from across the track I like the way the rider departing the pits and most of the pit crew are silhouetted with light on just one of the pit crew and the rider who just finished their stint.

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Anything with 1, 2 or 3 wheels.

I decided to go with a photo from my archives taken on black and white film.

9 hours down, 15 to go. This is Team Bike at around midnight during the Le Mans 24 hour motorcycle race in France in 1982. The rear of the bike and rider is being illuminated by a following bike.
