Daphne Does Derby: from startle, with love

A charming and delightful short story by Daphne Du Gorier and pictures by Coletta L. Damage of the Birmingham Blitz Dames.  You can find out more about Startle here and get your own customised derby art!

Once upon a time there was a rollergirl called Daphne. Spirited and tenacious, she liked nothing more than racing around the track with her derby wife, Raging Bulmer. The couple had fallen in love at Daphne’s first training session when Raging pointed out that Daphne was trying to put…

Angels on rooftops, acrobats with buns of steel, grungy leaping dancers in hoods, eerie figures in the crowd, poetry, a spectacular 3D projection on Town Hall and Goldie in a mac.

All ingredients of a brilliant show that lasted for magnificent four nights and these were from Thursday’s. Click on the photo above to go to the full gallery on my performance photography Facebook page.

More information about the show can be found here.

The Earliest Surviving Photograph of an American City

“Daguerreotype View of Cincinnati” and was captured in 1848 by Porter and Fontayne from Newport, Kentucky. This you have to see full size, click the photo for more info!

Gloriously *lush* mise en scene for this dark and thickly layered tune from country songwriter & musician, Emil Friis. (Also probably nsfw considering there’s a rather scantily clad lady in it…)

Saw this for the 2nd time tonight! Totally hilarious, intense, all the good words. Go see this movie if you haven’t already! Bring your friends with you. 

Currently plotting second viewing. I can’t remember the last time I saw something twice in the theater.

In 18 months every casual bike commuter should be riding Alfine Di2 electronic shifting with a carbon belt drive.

Hmm, Belt Drive or shaft drive? I’d swap the drop bars for pursuit too, but then I’m just difficult, that’s still a great looking ride!

Birmingham Blitz Dames logo refresh from last year…

A classic piece of design that catapulted the Blitz Dames’ image forward!

August 4th - Cresting Greenhill in Lichfield, heading down the Birmingham Road on my way home, traffic was very heavy. I love riding the traffic in Lichfield - challenging, exhilarating and smugness-inducing. A fine ride.

Sadly, I had a better audio track for this ride, but yootoob’s audio fingerprint thing spots it and removes it, which is a great shame. That technology is bloody impressive, though…

Man, I wish I had the chutzpah to do that - yesterday with the wind up in my face I struggled to keep up with the flow of traffic and kept getting stuck behind idiots at the same traffic lights who didn’t bother to move when they had the chance :(

June 14th - Lichfield Trent Valley is an awful railway station. Jammed into the chord junction formed where the Cross City Line intersects the West Coast Main Line, it’s a collection of huts, cabins and rambling, exposed platforms. It’s very busy with commuters and has still yet to get a functioning public information system. One of the worst aspects is accessibility; both the Cross City and southbound mainline platforms are utterly unaccessible to anything with wheels. I’m lucky, I can pick my bike up and carry it. Wheelchair users are stuffed.

Couldn’t have put it better myself - it’s a complete disaster area and the only reason for using it as a station is for a cheap direct route to the capital.

I reckon he’s just in it for the chase!  Great video, Bob!

May 30th - Rabbits don’t do clever, but this one at Farewell, Staffordshire was quite unique. Taking a suicide run out of the hedge on the left, he doubled back when he realised the danger and ran straight ahead, in the same direction as me, for about a quarter of a mile. The camera loses him for a bit, before I catch him up again and he jumps into the hedge. Never seen that before.

The video quality is quite poor. I’ve had to zoom in quite a bit, and you may need to turn the quality setting up on youtube.

Times are changing - Freeboprich will continue to be my brand for all performance related photography, but but in a much needed re-evaluation of my business structure, I am bringing my name to the fore to give an overarching identity to the work that I do.

I will also be completely overhauling my web presence in the process, tumblr has never been particularly conducive to pulling in an audience in the way it would hope (yeah, it’s not helped by me not using it very often!), but it only serves to fragment my updates from my site and ideally they should all be together.

So, a fresh start, coming soon!
