we've been away
to the home of australian racing,
and not the usual type of racing synonimus with mt panarama.
but ultra cool downhill gravity sports ,not a sport for everyone to tackle ,
but 3 days of some awesome spectator opportunities .
Newtons Nation..a music/ gravity sports event featuring downhill,street and classic luge,and downhill inline skated the mountain.
other activities represented vert skating ,bmx,moutain bikes ,
parkour,slackline,and those stupid scooter things lol.
Congratulation to all the competitors who braved such gnarly mountain
and challenged themselves,especially on the rainy sunday ,which ,added another
opportunity for awesome spectator fun .
here is a few of the 2000 pics taken between 3 cameras.

the girls with 3 time woman downhill world champion

with the school coach

on a roll ...go asti !
so who kids have created a picture plate before...
my kids do them every second yr or so....
and ive always wondered how far you could take the creative side
,without actually layering anything(cause there r a few restrictions )
but ill be interested to see how this plate comes out

i have actually created something this weekend..
