ATM Camera Shack Owner Review

ATM Camera Shack - 001

Andrew The Maker (ATM) Camera Shack fitted to a Salsa Mukluk.

Is the ATM Camera Shack with magnetic catch just the bees knees for carrying a Micro Four-Thirds or mirrorless or DSLR camera on your bike? Well it might be. So far so good for me with my bikepacking Salsa Mukluk and my currently preferred bikepacking camera kit, an Olympus E-M5 Mark II with a Olympus M.Zuiko 14-150mm F4.0-5.6 I. I have the Camera Shack mounted to the right of the stem on my Jones H-Bar as you can see above. Continue Reading →


Vale Tommy Grant – Professional Cyclist

Vale Tommy Grant

From The Northern Advertiser, Feb 13, 1953, page 7:

A leading State professional rider, Tommy Grant, died last Saturday morning as a result of injuries he received in a fall in the aces 5-mile scratch race at Midland Junction the previous Saturday night. He had not regained consciousness and, after an operation on Friday, contracted pneumonia.

A gloom was apparent among the cycling fraternity on Saturday at York sports, for which [the] deceased had nominated. Prior to the start of the programme all riders assembled and observed a period of reverent silence for the late rider who; aged 24, was a son of Mr. and Mrs. T. Grant, of Marmion-st., East Fremantle. Riders also wore tokens of mourning.

The memorial as photographed in the Fremantle Cemetery was erected as a tribute to Tommy Grant from his fellow members of the Fremantle Professional Cycling Club. Rest for ever in peace Tommy Grant.


The Lighthouse and the Photographer – Out and About in Fremantle

The Lighthouse and the Photographer

One from March 2016. I was down on South Mole heading to the end of the mole to photograph the departure of the Costa Luminosa when I took this photograph of a photography heading towards me. The South Mole is a great spot for fishing, viewing the harbour and generally chilling out on a beautiful summer evening.

Taken with an Olympus OM-D E-M1 and a Panasonic Lumix G Vario 100-300mm F4.0-5.6 lens – f/5.6 1/320 150.0mm.
