Haha... not really back to front Art... in NZ in the early days of automatic telephone exhanges each city ran their own system... the capital city, Wellington , decided its system was best when the cities(areas) could call each other the Wellington dial became universal... the zero was in the same position but one where 9 is..etc.This is the reason our emergency number is 111 rather then 999, or variants. After zero a series of ones (9 in the other dial) is least likely to be accidently dialed. In modern electronic telecom gear most other emergency numbers are also recognised..for visiting foreigners.
This is the heavy favorite in Superbike Racing, the BMW S1000RR. However, the reigning champion and king of Superbike racing blew on engine on it this year and had to strip his wife's bike of her engine so he could race in the finals!! It almost cost him his 13th Championship win! He dumped BMW for Kawasaki this year!
The first image posted above in the series is Jordan as well on the BMW. He is an amazing racer, extremely confident, comfortable and aggressive on the track.
Excellent series Art, glad to hear your feeling better.
Thanks, It was agony. A lost week. I thought it was something else and would end up in surgery this time, as it turns out ... the flu. I am about 90%. Still have some minor aches and a tiny bit of chill, but I am light years from the past weekend! I should be good as new by the this coming weekend.
Ducati is a big name here, see them at shows all the time. I don't really know the brands enough to differentiate. I am a race enthusiast more than an equipment enthusiast. Kawasaki, Yamaha and BMW seem to be the brand of favor or the most visible at the races.
I am just recovering from what ended up being the Flu! Spent the last 4-5 days just miserable. I have been posting a number of these on Facebook and thought I would share them here for those who do not frequent FB or Instagram.

Experimentation is definitely the next step. I actually tried a few things while shooting this. I found that I could change the size of the reflections on either side of the glass by moving my soft-boxes in and out. Light is absolutely fascinating.
Isn't it though! Some photographers manage to exploit light brilliantly. If makes you drool when you understand it, but can't quite get there!
I think the most successful photographers understand light and then shape a look that defines their style.
