Sunset at PIR

Summer racing has started at Portland International Raceway.  I'm looking forward to continuing my series on cycling using toy/plastic cameras.  I'm really not sure why I'm choosing toy cameras for a project that is clearly suited for digital with telephotos.  I guess I enjoy the challenge of working with less.


  1. What a wonderful composition of flowing lines, in that beautiful evening light! I don't think you need a rationale :-)

  2. I think the edge blurring gives the image a sense of timelessness, an entirely different take on sport.

  3. There's something to be said about going against the grain, Carol. You go!!!

  4. There is always a good startingpoint doing the other way around. Great image indeed!

  5. I did a series of sport Holga photos that concentrated on cycling. It's interesting the different view that you have with your Holga. If you want to see how I saw the sport click here.


    There is also a Sport Holga Group in flickr If you are interested in adding your photos it would be an honor.
