SENIOR RACE, ISLE OF MAN TT 2009

The local lad Connor Cummins

Three's a crowd


Not now John

Just to round off the week a few images from the very last Race. The race concludes the week of Races. Taken in my usual spot for this particular image, the lean of the bike on the bend at Parliament Square.

1. Connor Cummins who really is a local boy, not just a Manxman, from the Isle of Man, even better than that he is from Ramsey. He came 2nd and well deserved place it was too.
2. If you look closely 3 in a line taking the bend towards my local pub. Yes bend any closer and they would be in the pub.
3. The ever popular John McGuinness who was having a blistering ride until disaster struck, about 2 mins after this image was taken. One snapped bike chain and the end to another win for John this year I'm sad to say.

Hope you enjoyed the week in photos. Over a thousand so they will turn up from time to time, but for now that's your lot. Well apart for my special visitor tomorrow. Wading through the ones for sale.

I know Connor! Coming back for TT next year. Can we meet? Thanks for all the photos again and if you have any more of LBS I'd like to see those.

Some more of your gravity defying shots at the races. Well done! I've enjoyed them very much.

Martha Z said...

Looks colorful and exciting. I bet it was noisy, too.

Graheme said...

As much as I have enjoyed the event through your amazing photography I do worry you stand a little too close to the barrier. No award winning photo is worth a life and such a pretty and one too. Hope to see you next year, the Aussie from Adelaide down Taubman Street.

Marja said...

Great shots I wonder do they ever touch the floor

Babooshka said...

Marja-yes they do. Got lots of images of them dragging knees over the road.

LL- here for TT.Good and yes we'll meet. I'll sneak in a more of the blues festival.

Graheme- Pleasure to meet you and thanks for the compliment. Only after I've taken the photos do I realise how close I am. See you next year same place no doubt.

All of these are great shots. How close were you?


I know I have been very quiet lately, and I apologize. There's an explanation on my blog post from yesterday and today if you want to check it out.

I also apologize for this cut-and-paste comment. I just want to let everyone know what's going on.

Janie said...

Too bad about the broken bike chain.
Greal leans and amazing photos.
Can't wait to find out what "the duck gets it" means...

fishing guy said...

Babooshaka: Those seniors really get into their ride.

Indrani said...

Very exciting!

chrome3d said...

Thanks for the week at the races!

Elisabeth's bright side said...

It was a great report from the races, thank you and I hope you sell a lot of pictures!

mannanan said...

Cracking bike photos again Babooshka. And I'd have to agree that you do stand a tad close to those bikes. Worth it though with images like those......

Carolyn said...

Your posts and photos of the TT have been most enjoyable. Your photos are amazing and daring. Thanks for sharing your world.

Karen said...

Those are amazing shots...

Barb said...

Hi Babooshka,
I'm pondering the "Senior" in your post. Could old people be leaning like that on a speeding motor bike? Scary!

Babooshka said...

Oh Barb- You made me laugh at that thought. Zimmer's on bikes. No it's the class of bike, big and heavy. I do like your idea though.

Chuck Pefley said...

Beautiful tight shot of #2!

FA said...

Great bike shots! I'm happy to find your blog...I'll join ABC Wednesday, soon, too.

Thanks for visiting monasterydailyphoto

Mojo said...

That tears it. The Isle of Man TT is on my bucket list for sure now.

Frankly if that list gets much longer, I'm not going to be able to die on schedule.

These are marvelous! I hope you sell a million of 'em!
