    Black&White.

    Way back when I dabbled in 'RL Racing' I had plenty of opportunities to get into areas that the general public could not.
    I always shot B&W because I could process it myself and it was cheap to buy film in bulk.
    These are rather old and not that good but I thought I might as well inflict them on an unsuspecting audience!
    FWIW the negs have been stored in an old cardboard container and are a bit scruffy............ actually very scruffy indeed!.


    Australian GP 1975 Grid, all F5000 of course.

    Rallycross was popular and the legendary 'Peter Perfect' (Peter Brock) came into prominence aboard this device, Holden's LC Torana XU1 severely modified and highly effective.

    Those look good to me! thanks for posting.... I bought a 35mm when I was 18 and shot B/W for the same reasons. I used Kodak tri pan x.

    B&W is about the elements, the subject, without he distraction of color. The image focuses on the forms. Nice photos. I especially like the one with the car airborne. That was good timing. You couldn't afford to rip off a ten shot burst back then. At least, I couldn't. I can still remember my wife getting on my case for shooting too many slides of something.

    Like you two, I cut my teeth on B&W. I had a Minolta SR-T101 SLR.

    I like number 3 too, cracking timing! Ever try turning your digital stuff to B&W these days?

    I do it frequently. Everything I shoot is in color. I then convert to monotone. Here are some examples.
