I'm working on Humberstone Speedway Sunday July 28, 2019 next.

I've had three 5 race weekends recently (20,000/16,000/14,000 photos). This has added to a 4 race (15000 photos) weekend, after 7 races in 9 days (25000+ photos), and after 16 racing events (and 3 concerts) in 17 days (about 51,000 photos). This has meant that i've been away from the computer during most of this time, so i'm quite backlogged in updating the photos. Please keep checking - i'll update them as soon as i can.

I've created a new section for Non-racing photos. People keep asking me what else i shoot. This has a few examples, such as nature photography and concerts.
You can also find them under Photos in the left column on the home page.
Latest concert/hockey updates include:
---Cadillac's Last Show July 14, 2019
---The Dimestore Playboys March 23
---Alex Pangman March 2 and April 6
---Canadian National Blind Hockey Tournament 2019 (friday and saturday)
Latest concert/nature shoots include
---Double Cuts - 'Let us be Frank' December 11, 2019
---Al Lerman November 21, 2019
---Bywater Call November 17, 2019 .

I've been away from the computer much of my time at races (eg 18 days/17 races/54000 photos, 19 days/15 races/62000 photos, 3 days/5 races/18000 photos, 17 days/12 races/46000 photos).

I'll update photos whenever i can. Please check back - they will all be online.
