Half full or Half empty?
22nd November 2017

Half full or Half empty?

Maybe the question should be more like 'Half complete of Half incomplete?'

That would be more accurate when referring to the latest Gallery update featuring the Guernsey Dinner Boxing Club's latest fight night pics.

You see, I've only managed to find time to process 5 out of the 10 Bouts so far!

I must reveal now that I'm an optimist by nature. I always consider my glass of beer to be half full... although that state never lasts long. Never worked that out!

So, optimistically' I'm pleased to announce that the Dinner Boxing Gallery is half complete... which means I've still got a few hours to go to finally sign off the job. A full glass of beer will aid the conclusion :-)

These Bouts are now online:
BOUT-10 Billy Poullain v Jamie Way
BOUT-9 Henrique Jesus v Tyler Stretch
BOUT-8 Jimmy Lesbirel v Stephen Phillips
BOUT-7 Rhys Jordan v Brandon Jones
BOUT-6 Harry Bertram v Dale Johns

For now the first pics are here. They will be followed by the rest as soon as I have time. This may not be until next week as I'm stacked out with work at the moment:

Diverted from the job in hand....
21st November 2017

I had the evening all planned. There are several lengthy edits waiting for my attention... that was where I intended to spend my time this evening. But the best made plans sometimes have to wait.

After being called out at short notice to photograph a couple of Snooker games I'll now have to tackle those edits tomorrow.

However the time wasn't wasted as it made a change to photograph snooker again. It's actually quite difficult to capture the atmosphere as the clatter of a shutter is not appreciated and you have to restrict your movement too.

I'm quite pleased with the results of the shoot and the edit. I've already submitted the pics for publication and they are also online here.

Maybe tomorrow I'll have more luck with the backlog of editing :-)

More action pics from the weekend......
20th November 2017

I mentioned in yesterday's Blog what a wonderful mild autumnal weekend we have enjoyed in Guernsey.

I also commented how I passed a father and son making the best of the weather by building sand castles on Chouet beach, in the middle of November!

However I didn't have time to join them as I was already late arriving at the Autocross meeting after photographing the MTB XC in Talbot Valley. Those pics are here:

I'm pleased to say that I did have time to capture some of the Banger action and it is those pics that are the next uploads to the Gallery.

Take a look at them here:

An Autumnal weekend that was just too good to miss.....
19th November 2017

What a fantastic November day in Guernsey.

The perfect illustration was when I walked down onto Chouet beach to photograph the Banger racing and I passed a father making sand castles with his son... the day was just too good to waste!

It's been a busy weekend of 'togging for me including GFC football (a great 5-2 win lads) at Footes Lane, Ten bouts of dinner boxing at St Pierre Park Hotel. A gig - for a change!

The first round of the Guernsey Velo Club's Winter MTB XC in a seasonal Talbot Valley.... and then on to the Autocross racing at Chouet. Love it!

All the pics will follow, but for now the MTB XC gallery is online here:

The Phoenix Flames train before China......
12th November 2017

The Phoenix Flames had a final practice session at Beau Sejour before they left for the International Roller Skating competition in China.

The team was made up by Kirsty Bell, Emilia Bianco, Chloe Dyke and Monica Dekker. I popped along to capture a few images of their last training session.

The pics can be viewed by following this link:

It was a mucky weekend.....
06th November 2017

I've covered three motorsport events over the weekend together with Cross Country running and a gig.

The mucky part of the weekend was definitively the Trials event!

I'll be honest with you here, I found myself hovering around a rather slippery muddy pit filled with water (make that sticky wet mud). My hope - sorry guys - was that one unfortunate rider would drop into the pit and struggle to get out... I'd capture the picture. Job done. A guaranteed back page shot!

In the end the drama didn't unfold... however that doesn't mean the riders avoided getting wet and dirty and I did get some dramatic pics.

I've now added the first pics to my picture galleries. Take a look here at the Trials, Autocross and Karting pics:

Halloween..... it's spooky, but fun
04th November 2017

It's become a tradition... and one that grows each year.

Daz and his mates organize a Halloween Party at The Fermain Tavern where no amount of effort is spared to decorate the stage to make a spectacular setting for the bands.

Inevitably this encourages them to raise their game and this then rubs off on the gig-goers. You get the idea. Bring out the fake blood and costumes. Let the fun begin!

The 2017 edition of the Halloween Party saw all the old props come out of the shed (it must be a big one!). These were supplemented by new scary additions.

This gig is a 'must do' each year and 2017 was a vintage one.

The line-up included Dolmens... a very promising new band made up of several old faces that we all know from past bands. They were followed by something heavy... that'll be Byzanthian Neckbeard's slot.

One of Guernsey's regular headliners completed the gig in style and fancy dress. Static Alice topped the memorable night.

FNB Stonecrusher Cross Country......
04th November 2017

Today I enjoyed the crisp but windy afternoon down at L'Ancresse as I photographed some of the 2017 FNB Stonecrusher Cross Country.

There was a great turnout of competitors - no doubt encouraged by what one of the the course marshals described as perfect XC weather!

I've completed a quick Press edit and I've now added a new picture gallery featuring some extra pics:

Another non-stop week....
01st November 2017

At this time of year I normally have time to catch up with some of the system administration and organization... but not this year!

Somehow the work keeps coming in this year. This is great but it has left me with a pile of editing and digital asset management to complete!

But first I need to catch up with some gallery updates that have been waiting for my attention.

I've just finished one of the years larger and interesting picture edits. This update is of all the action from the recent 'OKTOBER SLUGFEST' that was organized by the Guernsey Amalgamated Boxing Club at Beau Sejour.

These latest updates can be viewed here:

Motocross Round-7 pics are online...
29th October 2017

I've updated the Motorsport Gallery with the latest event pics.

Follow this link to view action from Saturdays Motocross racing, Round-7.

The track looked to be in great condition so it was a bit disappointing to see the A-Group MX 2 Class with so few riders. I reckon that the day offered just about perfect racing... it was dry and the wind-chill was easily sorted by an extra layer of clothing!

Let's hope the turnout improves for the next race.
