This is a pic of the head technician/engineer at Petronas F1 racing team.

To his right is the Petronas BMW car. and around him are technicians preparing to start the car up.

I am not a fan of motor sports but I found it very exciting when the engine was started. The sound of the motor is unbelievable, maybe the guy was so happy because he is the one who blips the throttle.

Pic was taken on 35mm film at Federation Square Melbourne during a promotion for the Melbourne Formula One GP.

    excellent street capture and I like the color tone, looks great in mono-tones.
    excellent work!

    Thanks Mohsen. Its easy to see when a man enjoys his work. Though it wouldn’t be too hard to enjoy what this guy does. A few hundred thousand dollars a year, travelling the world and working on such beautiful pieces of machinery.

    I was a bit worried about this roll of film. I accidentally overdeveloped it so it was quite grainy with too much contrast. But with a lot of fiddling the tones came out not too bad.

    All the best my friend, Andrew
