Kensington Kinetic Sculpture Derby

This is a crazy race that is actual working sculpture. They run down the streets near the studio. We will meet at the studio and then walk over. There is a great fair and food area and such. This is a wonderful opportunity for street photography.

The operating theory is that you have to be able to power your sculpture by humans through the race.

We will get somewhere near the beginning of the race to get the starting vehicles.

But the funniest part is the ending...

They have to survive the mud puddle...

We will make sure that we strategically place ourselves near the puddle finish.  Bring a long lens for this.

This is a very fun event, you do not want to miss this one...
