The Isle of Man TT 2012.....Day 1


Waiting

While I was waiting for the bikes to appear for the practice lap, I took a few sneaky pics. The building in the background is the local library, the people, locals and tourists, and the guy in the foreground one of the unsung heroes, a marshal. Practice was delayed, due to a communication technicality. That really expensive equipment installed for the TT, obviously wasn't used to glorious sunshine and got slightly confused. Practice eventually got underway, photos done, home in time for the Eurovision Song Contest Results. ............which you really don't want to know about unless you absolutely like to watch 4 hrs of cheesy/camp/earsplitting warbling. Sweden won. Real music lost. Thanks heavens for TT.

great b&w - as usual the only bit of the eurovision i watched was the voting - seeing the results as they came in.

Keeping a low profile, dipping out of the nemes, and just show the town as it is.

Yes that was this photographer in a pink suede jacket.
