photoblog image The Pageant of Power

The Pageant of Power


Or at least a taster for it.

In July the Pageant of Power will be held at Cholmondeley Castle in Cheshire. As a precursor on Tuesday evening the Strand in Liverpool was closed to traffic and racing cars, super cars and motorcycles paraded along the road whist power boats and jet skis demonstrated in Salthouse and Canning docks and the Breitling Wing Walkers did their bit over the River Mersey.

Many thousands of people were ther and so it was not a particularly photo friendly event, but you do your best. The atmosphere and the sounds were pretty good though.

On the right is the Breitling Boeing Stearmen biplane, complete with wing walker, heading straight up. Bottom left is the Formula 2 power boat operated by Jelf Racing. Top right is the Liverpool FC Superleague Formula racing car that is currently partaking of the excitement in bringing Football and Motor racing together.

We know you know your left hand from your right hand, Les, so I guess you wanted to make sure we were paying attention. HA! I love your collage, which is giving me ideas. On Saturday we plan to go to the largest steam festival/event in Europe at nearby Dordrecht. I'll be thinking of you and trying to get some good shots:

Les Auld: Sometimes I am not too sure Ginnie, who was it that said "Age shall not wither us but it sure can affect your dimensional stability" Look forward to seeing some images from Dordrecht, it looks like a good event.

The template I used for this was modified from one downloaded from the PhotRadar site, http://www.photoradar.com/techniques/technique/25-free-triptych-photo-frames-for-photoshop, they do have some good stuff on there.

Thanks for the comment. appreciate it.
A fine trio Les. It all happens in Liverpool!
Les Auld: Sometimes Bill, thanks for the comment.
Excellent collage Les, and good shots despite the crowds. I've just been reading about this event in a motorcycle mag.I take, sadly we are elsewhere at the time or I might consider going.
Les Auld: The Cholmondley do is the same weekend as the Duxford Flying Legends, so I think I'll be going there Brian, thanks for the comment.
Well set out Les...Plenty going on there.
Les Auld: There was indeed Ron, thanks for the comment.
