Views from the road.

February 14, 2012

The Blue and Red is a visual journal from in and out of the saddle and I always enjoy a peep. I especially like the photos that do not feature humans or bicycles, just like these!

ToB Stage 3 [Stoke]. Photographs in B+W.

September 14, 2011

Yesterday morning I went along to Stoke for stage 3 of the 2011 Tour of Britain and this is a small selection of the snaps I took whilst there.

It was a great day and the atmosphere was awesome. I must also say that the team village at the depart was in a fantastic location compared to last year. This year it was situated in the beautifully green and picturesque Trentham gardens so big shouts to the organizers for picking out such a great spot for the teams and spectators alike.

More photos to come…

I have been taking a bunch of B+W shots recently too and I’m enjoying it… peep my tumblr.

Manual for Speed.

July 29, 2011

A manual for speed is a collection of photo essays, videos, narratives, interviews and anecdotes, all of which illustrate the pursuit of speed.

If you’re a fan of Garmin-Cervelo or Castelli, or just pro racing in general then head over and take a peek, you’ll love it!

Rollapaluza edit. Birmingham heats.

May 17, 2011

It’s taken me an age to get my head around this movie lark and that coupled with a dying mac has had me in bits of late, but in between panic and a lot of hand gestures and shouting I managed to squeeze this quick edit out. I hope you like it, and especially my Birmingham peoples!

Shot during the Midlands Rollapaluza heats in Birmingham, April 2011.

At the end of the night Tom Gillespie won in fine style, beating his opponent Marcus by 3 seconds over 1000m.

Peep the results.

Flying Scot.

January 11, 2011

Adding the final touches to a Flying Scot frame before painting. Behind the doors of the glittering front of their Murray Street shop, Rattray’s framebuilders worked their magic in these dark atmospheric surroundings.

Such an amazing photograph, for lovers of the Flying Scot.

Blue Peter. 1987.

I should remember this episode, but I don’t. Anyone know where I can watch?

Henri Cartier-Bresson.

November 18, 2010

Ever since university I have been a fan of Cartier-Bresson’s work. Only the other day I was speaking with my partner about my seldom used Moleskine notepad… The only words it contains from my time in higer learning, among illegible ramblings are “Look at works by Henri Cartier-Bresson”. Aah, bless.

Another one: France. 1932.

The Original Rapha boy.

Generally in a race of the Barrachi type, the changes are very rapid, with stints of no more than 300 yards. Altig was at the front when I started the check – and he was still there a minute later. Something must be wrong. Altig wasn’t even swinging aside to invite Anquetil through… Suddenly, on a flat road, Anquetil lost contact and a gap of three lengths appeared between the two partners. There followed one of the most sensational things I have ever seen in any form of cycle racing during my 35 years’ association with the sport – something which I consider as great a physical performance as a world hour record or a classic road race win. Altig was riding at 30mph at the front – and had been doing so for 15 minutes. When Anquetil lost contact, he had to ease the pace, wait for his partner to go by, push him powerfully in the back, sprint to the front again after losing 10 yards in the process, and again settle down to a 30mph stint at the front. Altig did not this just once but dozens of times.

German Track in B & W.

October 12, 2010

What a brilliant gallery. Historische Bildergalerie des Bahnradsports has an absolute sack full of vintage track cycling scans from the early 1900s up until the early sixties and they are all great. If only I could read German!

Pete Boydell. Smashing it.

September 20, 2010

No idea where this image is from nor who Pete Boydell is but it’s quite obvious from the determined and somewhat ungodly look on his face that whoever Pete Boydell is, he is absolutely smashing it.

Some great shots of the six day races in America just after WWII found over at bikeraceinfo. I especially like the top one here, braces and side slicked barnets are a great look.

Busy hands.

Grand Boucle.

July 20, 2010

This magazine is meant to be a review and critical study of racing bicycles from 1903 until now (2009). The bikes shown are especially selected to accentuate the development in each decade.

Looks good, peep more here.
