A to B

I have always enjoyed cars and Motorsports and after getting the opportunity to photograph the Red Bull GRC race at the beginning of the Month I have been itching to photograph more racing. I decided to go check out the local drag strip on Saturday night with my brother  and while the racing is from A to B and not as exciting as Rally Cross, I still had fun and managed to get a few shots that I will be sharing as I go through them. This was also an excellent opportunity for me to practice panning shots. I need to start going more often!

Cars Can Fly

I don’t know what speed the drivers were hitting the jump at but they were flying!

Knocking The Dirt Loose

A little tug of the E-Brake going into the corner onto the dirt section knocks the dirt loose from the rear left wheel.

Working Hard

It is amazing to watch how hard the teams work to keep the cars competitive during the course of a race weekend. In scorching heat and disgusting humidity the mechanics and engineers work non-stop to keep the cars going.

Speed Blur

The race was a great opportunity to practice panning shots. It was hard to keep the cars sharp and blur the background to show the car moving. Gotta learn somehow though.

Day 23: Cars

As mentioned in the post I made yesterday, Nancy and I went to a BBQ festival this weekend. We were a bit disappointed as we were expecting to find amazing BBQ being smoked all over the venue. Maybe we got there to late/early but this was not the case. We still managed to get some traditional North Carolina pulled pork but it was from a catering company and not some amazing southern pit-master with crazy family secrets.

Despite the lack of BBQ we still had fun. We had never been to Kinston and the historic downtown section where the festival took place was interesting and I am glad we went. Personally my favorite part of the festival was the car show. We arrived as it was wrapping up but there were still plenty of cars to admire. I didn’t take many photos as it was mid afternoon and the lighting was harsh. The weather was perfect for walking around though so I can’t complain. These are the best of the shots I did take.
