Home from Bali

Well, Lori and I have been home for a little over a week now, and I've been back at work, back at the track, busy editing photos and catching up with family.. Somewhere in all that, I've tried to have a look through the photos from Bali.. While we were away, I made an effort to write a few words every day, and I'm going to try to post up a few more posts from the trip over the next couple of days, or maybe weeks..

Look Out Bali, Here We Come

Tomorrow morning, Lori and I are flying out to Bali for a few days rest and relaxation. So of course, being me, I just had to get up this morning and snap a shot of the same flight heading out today. I'll post up a few photos on here during the trip.

Over the Other Side

Last night I had the opportunity to take my partner, Lori, and my daughter, Mikah, to the Perth Motorplex for the rescheduled Silver Cup and Demo Derby meeting, initially set to be run on Easter Sunday, the meeting was rescheduled after heavy rains prevented any chance of running the event on the original date. While I was there to watch and enjoy the racing, I couldn't resist the temptation to throw some long glass and a converter on the 1D-X, bump the ISO way way up and see what I could do, so here are a few of those photos.

2016 Good Friday Burnouts

I'm sorting through the photos from the 2016 Good Friday Burnout King at Perth Motorplex this week, so here are a few teaser shots. This years event was an opportunity for entrants to secure invites to both the Red Centre Nats and the Masters at Summernats, which tempted several east coast cars to come and play.
