And they are racing... by maggiemae

And they are racing...

Still Victorian celebrations here! The Penny Farthing has been around in Oamaru for quite a while and has become quite famous. Every year at this time they have races!
This is Oliver who just loves his bike and tests the strength and his own so often.

Three good things:
1 A cold glass of cider to share with John while we watched the races.
2. Packing up the caravan for a 3 - 4 week sojourn plus the Motorcycle Event of the year in Invercargill..
3. We had to read the manuals for the toilet use, the refrigerator use and the how to sit in a chair after all this.....use!
Great vintage processing. Penny farthing bicycles do not look like they are easy to ride. Kudos to this chap for taking it on.

Fantastic image - if it wasn't for the great big camera that man is holding it could have been taken 200 years ago! I love the editing you have done on it.

Great shot and processing.
Hope the weather is kind down that way for your holiday. We are heading down to cycle the rail trail in a couple of weeks. And I hope there aren't too many earthquakes.

@dulciknit They don't have brakes, Alison and its a long way to fall so imperative you are agile!

@skipt07 Thanks Skip - I found out that shortly before I took this photo, Oliver came crashing down! He was unhurt though!

This is an absolutely gorgeous image! The processing is amazing! Do you mind telling us what you used to get this effect? Is it a phone app or available on line? You chose well...this bolsters your wonderful photo!

@Weezilou It was one on the Nik Collection - maybe 'silver efex' I think using sepia or 'yellow' and with a washed out vignette!
November 24th, 2016  
@maggiemae Thank you so much! Even after it became free, I had other pp tools I was using and I'd drug my feet about adding more to the list. But this alone convinces me to get it! What you've done here is absolutely gorgeous!
