New Old

I've started working on a new project in a way that's new to me, but old to many others. You see my first camera was digital - a fuji finepix. I don't remember the model but it had 1.3 megapixels and was damn cool. I took it to the states and took as many pictures as I could fit on to it's massive 16Mb flash card. The pictures are long gone on a hardrive that decided it no longer wished to take part in living, but I still remember the camera. So I never had a 'proper' camera and thus had never got my hands covered in developer, fumbled around in the dark and got used to the heady red lights of the darkroom.

Time for a change..

Life Bicycles

When I embarked upon a trip to Alpe d'huez in the French Alps this year for some riding at the ever famous Megavalanche event I was excited. I expected to spend my time split evenly between the local bars, the chairlift and riding down mountains as fast as I possibly could. The reality was that I slept on a cardboard box, got a chest infection, didn't make it to the bar at all and spent less time riding than an average week at home. On the plus side I did race the Megavalanche and it was awesome. Really really hard and really awesome.

When I wasn't helping to make our super demanding chalet dinner or trying to take the tyre off my bike or just generally taking medication to make me feel less like dying I made a video of our travels. Life Bicycles. It's very very serious. Seriously.
