On 11th May 2017 the Tour Cycle series came back to Stoke-on-Trent. The race route was around the centre of Hanley. I was able to see one of the races, passing through Stoke on my way between Jobs. When it is not paid work I use the opportunity to try things out, to learn about my photography equipment and skills. I had with me a lightweight camera and 2 lenses, 24mm & 85mm. Neither wide enough for extreme angles or long enough for separating out each cyclist. What I thought would be was so.
For me the highlight had to be Mr Wilson’s Second Liners. New Orleans street jazz versions of popular music hits including New Order’s Blue Monday.
