My first concert photography was shot at the Adelaide Grand Prix in the 1980’s.
I had purchased a camera body, a telephoto lens (cannot recall the brand nor model!) from a pawn shop, plus 40 rolls of 36 film. Shot the lot in one day at the GrandPrix. Because of the inordinate costs of developing film in those days, I re-hocked all the camera equipment to have it all developed – but not printed!
In the mid 1990’s I scanned the negatives and saved the results to 3.5inch floppy discs. In the early 2000’s, I dug up those discs and converted all that I could to CD. (The software I had used to convert the images was my biggest mistake – every single image couldn’t be seen!
About 2 years ago I found those CD’s, and in 2010 added to my Flickr.com collection. Now they are yours to view. Now I want to find the negatives again!

Silly thing is: I’m not sure about which year these are from. I went to the Adelaide Grand Prix in 87, 88 and 89, but only photographed events at one of them! Your thoughts welcomed.
