KXF 250 Problems

Weeeeelll, I have not posted for a while as I have been busy with my photography. Over Easter weekend I rebuilt a KXF 250 and had a problem that puzzled me. Check this out, I posted the story on this forum

Weekly Photo Challenge: Dreamy

O.K. I took a whole series of photos whilst being driven somewhere in Darwin City. I basically hung my camera out of the window on long exposure and waved it crazily around. The result, as can be seen here, is a dreamy cacophony of neon and street light colour.

I think the images are quite dreamlike, I am not sure if you have similar dreams or maybe I am mad, but sometimes I find myself in such dream world mind-scapes. Sometimes I float around, happily travelling from some memorable place to another, other-times it can seem nightmarish or threatening, something to flee from in desperation. I hope these art works evoke some imaginative thoughts, maybe tonight these moods may swoon you into a sleep mode rapid eye experience that will awaken you breathless.

Motocross berm action shot

Here is my favourite photo from last weekend. I wish it was a bit sharper but that is the pay off to capturing the motion. I love the roost trailing back around to the start of the berm railing action and the wave flowing over to the right.  Worth standing out in the tropical hot sun for.

Here Is my weekly photo challenge entry. This is the Northern Territory Government House illuminated at night. The coat of arms above the main doorway is a Stainless Steel Sculpture which I worked on the fabrication of and installed in the doorway. The commissioned artist was Geoff Todd.

TEMCC Club Championships Round 2 Part 3

Ha ha I didn’t realise I took so many, one of this batch is a fantastic shot which I will post full resolution later. All these shots were captured with a Canon 5DMkIII with a Tamaron 70-200 2.8 Lens. Usually I shoot Moto Cross with the camera set on shutter priority using 125th to 200th of a second shutter speed, that way I get some motion blur of wheels spinning. Although some blur of the rider is often visible, I like this slight blurring compared to a sharp motionless image that a faster shutter speed will produce. I like to also use a circular polarising filter. which cuts the goggle reflection down to make the eyes visible.

TEMCC Club Championships Round 2 Part 1

Here are some of the shots I captured on Sunday (More to follow). These are not full resolution as I downsized the files for faster uploading. There are a few “action Blur” shots which I have kept as I like the arty look of them. I enjoy the action photography that this sport provides. Each shot records a vision that only occurs for that split second. I do not offer photo’s for sale but I am happy to provide a full resolution image file if you ask and provide a memory stick or SD card. Oh did I mention I like beer! You cam message me on Face Book

 

 

I have actually recently acquired a large format printer so when set up, I may offer prints but I would need to recoup cost of inks and paper. Anyway Enjoy!! _Y9A6791 _Y9A6795 _Y9A6796 _Y9A6799 _Y9A6800 _Y9A6801 _Y9A6804 _Y9A6805 _Y9A6806 _Y9A6807 _Y9A6809 _Y9A6810 _Y9A6811 _Y9A6812 _Y9A6815 _Y9A6816 _Y9A6817 _Y9A6818 _Y9A6820 _Y9A6821 _Y9A6824 _Y9A6825 _Y9A6827 _Y9A6828 _Y9A6830 _Y9A6831 _Y9A6832 _Y9A6834 _Y9A6835 _Y9A6836 _Y9A6837 _Y9A6838 _Y9A6839 _Y9A6840 _Y9A6841 _Y9A6842 _Y9A6843 _Y9A6844 _Y9A6849 _Y9A6855 _Y9A6856 _Y9A6857 _Y9A6859 _Y9A6860 _Y9A6861 _Y9A6862 _Y9A6863 _Y9A6864 _Y9A6865 _Y9A6866 _Y9A6867 _Y9A6868 _Y9A6870
