With a bit of time today before heading home, I took the drive from Krakow to Auschwitz. I'm not a big WWII history guy and my knowledge of what had happened at Auschwitz was almost entirely based upon things I've seen in movies. The things I learned today startled me in terms of both scale and cruelty. I do find it a bit disconcerting at how much of tourist trap it is with all the associated trappings. Still a place I would highly recommend anyone visits if they get the chance.

Went through a few edits of the last @speedwaypairs event, will probably do more over the next couple of days before heading to round two this weekend with Team @monsterenergy

In a mood just to throw myself into some edits. Here's one of @greghancock45 from the @speedwaypairs in Torun a few weeks back.

Today we say goodbye to my buddy Les Morrison. I've known Les since we were both in primary school, and we've been dicking about with cars ever since. Les was the guy that first pushed me into shooting drift, which ended up pushing me into what I do for work now. This dude was a hugely important part of my life and we are sorry to see him pass. This picture is from my phone on the first drift day I ever attended 6 or 7 years ago. Les brought me along to grab some shots because I had a good camera (even though at that time I had no idea how to use it 😂). It's a sad day, but the memories are good. You'll be missed Les.

Looks cool but can't think of a caption. @przedpelski323 before a race for the @monsterenergy team at the last round of @speedwaypairs

One for the camera geeks. Been blown away so far by the @sonyalpha A7R III. Sure it's not a camera designed for sport shooting, but with a reliable AF system and up to 10 FPS it's comforting to know that it's capable enough should I need it trackside .

I want to go back.

Torun MotoArena in the sunshine. Should be a damn fine way to get this season kicked off.

Another shot from last night's failed attempt to catch the northern lights. Still fun to get out at night and make the most of the occasional breaks in the cloud. Shot on the @sonyalpha A7RIII with the @sigmaphoto 35mm F1.4 Art with the @sigmauk MC-11 mount convertor

Earlier tonight the @aurorawatchuk app pinged a notification of an amber alert, meaning there was the possibility of being able see Aurora Borealis with the naked eye. I jumped off of the couch grabbed my camera bag. Two problems. It's been cloudy as hell all night and where I live there is too much light pollution. I headed north east into the country side and waited for a break in the clouds. Unfortunately I didn't manage to catch the Aurora, but I did manage to have my first proper go at shooting the stars. Pretty happy with the results, and want to do more. Shot on the @sonyalpha A7RIII with a @sigmauk 35mm F1.4 art and the @sigmaphoto MC-11 mount converter. .

Next weekend this bad boy is really going to get put through it's paces. It will interesting to see if a mirrorless camera can keep up with the challenges of Speedway racing. If it can I'll be rocking an all @sonyalpha set up before too long. #a7riii #sonya7riii #sonyalpha #alphacollective

Making Speedway travel plans for the year ahead. 🤘
