Rennafix Group held their annual Soapbox Derby as part of Sligo Summer Festival ’14 last weekend, I missed this last 2 years due to photo bookings but I made it down this year to catch some of the speedy action. I had great fun playing around with different shutter speeds to give some motion to the photographs, using slow shutter speeds to blur the static background.
After the soapbox derby, the organizers had a ball race competition where they released a load of coloured balls down the mall. The balls needed a bit of help so the kids gladly got involved to help boot them down the hill.
Here are some photos from the day.
