ISLE OF MAN TT 2009, DAINESE SUPERBIKE RACE - MY WORLD

As close as you can get



If you...

look...

closely...

you can see just how close I was. Check out those flies on the windscreens!


Really got to leave you with a few quick images from the Dainese Superbike Race. John McGuiness the winner( sorry image already booked for the magazine) and me with the photos. Will upload the first side car race soon. 249 images to sort through tonight and guess what? Probably 249 to take again tomorrow. As you can see I am in two different vantage points to take these. Maybe you were there?

Bold




Continues tomorrow

It looks fun and frightful all at the same time. Fabulous action series, Babooshka...

Janie said...

Looks like an exciting race. It's amazing how far those bikes can lean to one side without falling over completely!

susieofarabia said...

Great action photos!!! I know I've told you this before, but I love the way you match the color of your text to the photos!

Babooshka said...

Susie- I can't remember why I started doing that but it sort of works. Arty Farty me again.

Marja said...

That makes even me excited about the race and eeh yes I could spot the fly

alicesg said...

That's an amazing how you could capture such neat action photos. I think I would have blur photos...lol. Have a nice day.

Kath said...

Help me B! I got all blurred images. I have a Nikon D 90 so I know I should have strong pics. On the hairpin. Any suggestions.

Lantaw said...

great captures! you must have quite a day!

Sally in WA said...

Very neat! What a great way to spend the afternoon.

Wren said...

Glad the weather cleared enough for the race to take place. You certainly had a great view - it looks like the bikes are coming right at you on that curve!

Photoeye said...

Can I just point out Babooshka is not the only Isle of Man photographer who covers the TT. Many of us here.

This is not sour grapes. I am a huge fan of your creative and astonishing work around Ramsey. I also find your text amusing. This love in is a little OTT though. On that note I compliment fully on your work today.

Ebie said...

Super motorbikers! You must be too close to take the shots, how exciting! Never been to one!

fishing guy said...

Babooshka: Wonderful photos of the racers making the curves.

Anna said...

Wow I love your action photos. Thanks for sharing, Anna :)

Gaelyn said...

Neva said...

I posted a motorbike as well but not like these!

Hilary said...

Great photographs. So pleased the weather is fine for the racing. Must be very exciting but very intense work. And then sorting through in the evening. Wow, good luck with it all.

Arija said...

Good for yu and great shots, but I cannot get far enough away from man-made noisy machines.

Babooshka said...

Thank you all again. Good to see you are enjoying the bikes. More fun today and hopefully show you the sidecars tonight. Now that is dnagerous.

Give my regards to Denise - she once promised to meet me in Newcaatle after I told her we had planned to go to the UK this summer. But then the stopped the ferry...

Carolina said...

I like the photos. Mostly because they don't come with the NOISE!

Ben said...

How exciting! Is this a street race or in the circuit? Well, either way, it must be surrounded by a great engine notes! How, exciting!
