One Image/One Story

This week Ann-Christine has given us the prompt One Image/One Story for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

After some thought I drew up a shortlist of around ten images/situations. I then whittled the list down to four.

Tuesday Photo Challeng - Number

15 hours down, 9 to go. A dawn pit stop on Sunday morning for Team Bike during the 1982 Le Mans 24 hour motorcycle endurance race in France.

On the Hunt for Joy: Put Your Collections on Display

45 years using Olympus cameras. A selection of the Olympus cameras I have owned and used over the years. Having got interested in photography in the mid 1970s I purchased my first Olympus camera in 1976. Taken with a Sony mirrorless camera after I became unhappy with the direction Olympus were taking with their camera design.

Motion and Movement

This is my contribution to Ann-Christine’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Weird and Wonderful prompt.

I had a few ideas for the challenge before realising that two of them involved motion blur and intentional camera movement.

So I decided to go with a small selection of motion blur and intentional camera movement shots.

One Word Sunday: Count

Intentional camera movement of trees on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario.

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.
