A wreck on the first turn of a motocross race in Millville, Ohio sends one rider tumbling off his bike, and others veering off the course to avoid a possible collision.

Nikon N90S shot on Ilford 100

Millville, Ohio

Circa 2000

A photographer who was born in a coal chute; to a mother who was literally squatting over it, in rural West Virginia. He managed to stave off black lung while splitting firewood in the backwoods of Kentucky for a four fingered accountant and Veteran of WWII. After dodging improvised explosive devices and periodic mortar/small arms fire in a far away land; he now whiles away his time digging in the Colorado dirt, occasionally finding the strength to raise his lazy hand to snap a picture or two.

    Hey, are you interested in adding this work to the Speed Challenge

  • Reflexio, thanks for the offer, but I have been hiding out for the last couple of months. Laying low. Otherwise I would have, but thanks anyway.
