CX Masters World Championship 2013, Louisville KY USA

Spent the day down along River Road watching the CycloCross Masters World Championship.  Louisville does a great job bringing a wide range of sporting events to the area (this year we hosted the NCAA Women’s Volleyball Final Four, the CycloCross World Championships, and a #1 ranked basketball team for a week).  It was windy and snowing out on the course today.  Parts of the course were frozen.  Parts of my body were frozen.  Parts of my body are now coarse.  Despite all that the snow provided a great scene to take photos.  Below are a few of my favorites from the day.  Please enjoy as my sacrifice has my hands still tingling.

Vladimir Putin.  Am I right?  Anybody can shoot an elephant with their shirt off but real men CycloCross in sub-freezing temperatures.

Eyes on the prize.  Totally concentration is the only way to block out the pain and the elements.

I like this photo because it reminds me of the Kentucky state flag.  United We Stand.

2012 ING New York City Marathon*

The original plan was to go out and photograph for the Robin Hood Foundation at their 20-mile marker block party, but…  As many of you know there was a cancellation of the 2012 ING New York City Marathon.  As runners were caught in the middle of NYC politics and a disaster with the effects the [...]

Emerald Isle Classic - Notre Dame v. Naval Academy

Fun event in Dublin this past weekend as a large contingent of American football fans flocked to Ireland for the Emerald Isle Classic.  The game itself was a total blowout but entertaining nonetheless.  The weeks entertainment was provided by Temple Bar area, meat pies and strong stouts.  Pregame entertainment was awash all over the streets [...]

Lupu Bridge Shanghai

What I believe to be one of the best places to view Shanghai from above is the Lupu Bridge Climb.  Originally built as a tourist stop during the 2010 World Expo for views over the Expo ground it remains in operation but for most intents and purposes is a forgotten destination.  Most signs and displays [...]

Century Park Flowers, Shanghai

Here are a couple of quick shots of flowers during a recent walk and bike ride around Century Park in Shanghai.  I’ve always avoided the park on the weekends but during the week the park is very empty.  The pigeon house is unique and worth checking out.  You know you are in the right area [...]

Construction Destruction Site (Tilt-Shift Time-Lapse)

Thought I would share what I have been experiencing over the past week.  Thirteen stories down and eight hundred meters toward the river is a fairly large apartment construction site.  It’s a normal construction the majority of the time, but last week they brought in the noise with cement hammers to break up a temporary [...]

Shanghai Bus Tour (Time Lapse)

In this video we travel around the Puxi side of China.  The tour begins at Peoples Square facing the Nanjing Walking Street and makes a quick loop around the square before heading out towards the Huangpu River where we catch a glimpse of the Pearl TV Tower.  After a daring u-turn we travel down the [...]

MIDI Festival

Last weekend brought to town the first major outdoor summer music festivals here in Shanghai.  The MIDI Music Festival took place in the southeast corner of Century Park, which provided great access to us metro riders.  Was not able to make it over on Saturday as my day was booked solid with baseball practice and [...]

The Many Faces of Rock Tiger (Korean Rockabilly)

Something of great interest to me is how cultures/people experience and interpret items from a much different place.  Take for instance sport, in Japan the live baseball game is basically the same as in the United States, but the trained eye will see minor nuances in the ceremony around the action on the field.  It [...]

Shanghai Spring

Being my first year in Shanghai I am not too sure of the seasons but what I gather is spring is April/May, monsoon season is May/June, a terribly hot summer follows during July/August and a pleasant fall in September/October.  More evidence of a short spring is that all the music festivals are crammed into two [...]
