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.

Not saying where but if you follow the Cambridge Christmas Lights trail in December you’ll find it.

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

One more sleep

A constant stream of families – kids in PJs – Mums and Dads and older siblings pointing out the special bits – a special treat, before bed, on a special night.

The Milton Street Christmas lights

Over 18000 lights and 4 weeks of preparation

Much loved and much anticipated the Christmas lights at 69 Milton Street Leamington will be turned on, for Christmas 2008, in a couple of days. Four weeks in the setting up and over 18000 lights later Judy’s gift to the community is visited by hundreds each year. And hundreds.
