First time I have ever shot an auto race. These are from the Utah Grand Prix Porsche GT3 race. It was a lot of fun. Thanks for looking.
The car above won the race. It was driven by a 15 year old kid who doesn’t even have his driver’s license. His mom was also racing and she came in 5th place.
. . . and here are a few that didn’t really fit into the above series.
Melanie Snow and her 15 year old son Madison Snow pose in front of Melanie’s Porsche GT3.
I was watching (read: rooting for) the New Orleans Hornets versus the Lakers lately and it made me want to revisit some of the Jazz games I shot this year. All but one of these was shot with a 28mm lens. It was an interesting season to say the least. I was sorry to see Jerry Sloan retire. As always thanks for looking.
Double-20. Rookie Gordon Hayward vs. veteran Ray Allen.
Rookie Derrick Favors.
Big Al sums up the season.
Better luck next year.
Julie and I walked across the Brooklyn Bridge while we were in NYC. It was awesome except for when I realized, halfway across, that the 2 pints of beer at lunch right before was probably not the brightest idea. First image was taken with my Yashica-D.
This is shot looking back at the Williamsburg Bridge and the midtown skyline.
The last shot was taken during a boat trip around the entire island of Manhattan on a different day.
Thanks for looking,
We got into NYC kinda late the first day and our hotel was only a few blocks away, so we decided to walk to all the tourist spots that we otherwise weren’t going to spend daylight seeing. Not that there is anything wrong with wanting to sight see at these places it just wasn’t something we were all that interested in doing.

-Josh Ritter, The Curse
I read a story somewhere about that song and how Josh Ritter was inspired to write it (and the album) by touring around an egyptian exhibit at a museum in New York. (He lives in Brooklyn). I am pretty sure it was the Met because the Egyptian exhibit there was jaw dropping. We only got to see a few exhibits at the Met. (Egyptian, Classical Paintings and of course the Photo exhibit).
I think one could spend an entire 2 weeks in that museum and still not see everything. Anyway, here are some photos.
Thanks for looking.
