Cambridge BMX Club Milton Street Leamington NZ

This coming Easter weekend, yes, this weekend (29-31 March 2013) Cambridge BMX Club hosts the 2013 BMX National Championships. The track is a 5 minute walk from my house. These photos were made in a half hour period mid day today Sunday the 24th of March 2013. I am interested in the spectacle of the whole thing rather than specific sporting manouvers and identities. It is a surprisingly difficult subject. These images have been post proceesed fairly ‘robustly’ when compared to my usual.

BMX track opening self assignment

Ariel Walter in front

In deciding to photograph today from a observer’s point of view – as you do – as I do – I had one image in mind and this is the variation on that idea as it appeared towards the end of the day – cropped – oh well, close!  There are others but this suits me; Ariel Walter won this race from – sorry – I do not know the name of her competitor. Interestingly the Facebook f makes an appearance in colours not a million miles away from the competitor number plates. I tend to like little visual plays like this – I’m sure they’re Facebook friends. unedited day gallery

Now here’s a question

Why would there be two reasonably large Christmas trees sitting on the greenbelt beside the old Leamington Factory on the corner of Carlyle Street, Rotoorangi Road and Lamb Street in June?

2011 Cambridge Family Kite Day

A sunny, Saturday, autumn afternoon in Leamington – and kites. The wind is a little patchy – but there is plenty to watch. From the big and bold to the subtle – the almost not there, the slick to the aerodynamically challenged. The 2011 Kite Days have been the initiative of the Waipa District Council folk – the ones in the blue tshirts. I particularly like this idea and the other almost lighter than air string affair featured in the day gallery.

Welcome to Cambridge New Zealand – WRCH2010 Park & Ride Blue

Welcome to Cambridge New Zealand

Corner Lamb and Carlyle Streets Leamington
A delightful contrast in building styles. The portacom? arrived in the past few of days and will no doubt service Park & Ride Blue (northern and western traffic) for the 2010 Rowing World Championshipswhich I take to be the paddock to our right. Silage has been harvested and the big green bales removed this morning – a very productive form of grooming. Beyond – the ubiquitous Rosswood Contour Barn – we have always referred to them simply as Rosswood hay barns – manufactured right here in the heart of Leamington. Beyond the former Leamington Dairy Factory (c.1910 – I might have this date slightly wrong). We are on the Cambridge greenbelt on the corner of  Lamb Street, Rotoorangi Road and Carlyle Street in Leamington, New Zealand.

ALL northern traffic from Auckland, Hamilton and the western areas is expected to use this facility. Traffic coming from the north on State Highway 1 will be diverted down State Highway 1B at Taupiri and will then proceed towards Tamahere to Mystery Creek Road. Here, Auckland vehicles will meet Hamilton traffic which will be advised to use State Highway 3. The routes will converge and proceed down Kaipaki Road to the parking area.

Maunga Cycle Challenge

Not a sport video or an art work – rather an exercise in editing using Windows Movie Maker. The timing begins with the first riders and notes the time lapse – approximately – of those following. The race, the Maunga Cycle Challenge, captured with the Canon G10 as it passes through the intersection of Lamb Street and Carlyle StreetRoto-o-Rangi Road on the boundary of Leamington and Pukekura. The Maunga Cycle Challenge started and finished in Te Awamutu.

The No 8 wire attitude

This does get on Dad’s wick, and mine. The number of folk who insist on inverting the meaning of the phrase a No 8 wire solution. Just in the past couple of weeks, in a letter to the editor of The Herald, a couple of learned blokes from somewhere down the line opined that we need to lose our No 8 Wire Attitude, confusing it I am sure, with another Kiwi favourite ‘She’ll Be Right‘.

To us the term means innovation and creativity. Finding a practical solution for an immediate need. Utilising scarce resources with lateral thinking. Above all it is about delivering a solution that works.

No 8 the soft, low tensile wire used for fencing New Zealand was still ubiquitous as I grew up. It took me a week to find this. As it happens it was under my nose just a few hundred metres from here. A No 8 wire solution of beautiful, minimalist simplicity.
