MAD SUNDAY, COWS, DEVILS AND BUTTERFLIES



Mad Sunday


Another Mad Cow on the island



Bikes and tigers and butterflies, oh my!

The devil rides out with his pussycat doll. Dontcha wish you tourists were hot like mine? Dontcha!

Last of the Mohicans


At last we are underway with the . These images are from what we call "Mad Sunday." As you can see it's just lots of bikers having fun doing laps round the island some in fancy dress. Besides the above I also captured the Pink Panther, Sylvester the Cat, a wasp a bunny to name but a few. Hundreds of people out on bikes and hundreds more along just to watch the parade of two wheeled fancy dress riders.

The sun is shining. The new race schedule has been published. Busy day ahead and posting as and when this week.

Where did you take the mohicans from?
That is the coolest capture.

John - Outside Shoprite looking to Ramsey Bakery. A lucky shot. I'd finished for the day and they just came along.

John said...

Sorry, not local. Where is Shoprite?
I know the Mohicans.

Brian Miller said...

Babooshka said...

John- Shoprite is the big Supermarket in Ramsey just down from the Town hall and on the same side as the Central Pub and the petrol station.

Definitely off to sleep now.

My, you have been very musical in your commentary during this motorcycle week, Babooshka. I too have been this way inclined. Against my better judgement I'm sending you a link. I think you may just be crazy enough to appreciate it!: http://postcardsfromwildwood.wordpress.com/2009/06/10/duetto-buffo-di-due-gatti/
