TdG Team Time Trial pictures

Uncategorized 6

I finally uploaded some of my pictures from yesterday’s team time trail to Flickr, so check out my Tour de Georgia 08 set. I had a great time photographing the race; in fact, I think I becoming addicted to race photography. With such a short circuit lap and two teams on the course at once, there was never a break in the action. I took the opportunity to experiment with my camera settings and try some new things. Some of the shots worked out, though many of them didn’t. Still, the important thing is that I had a blast and learned a bit in the process. I am becoming more interested in race photography all the time, so I appreciate any feedback (good or bad) from any photographers who might be reading.

Speaking of photographers, I had the opportunity to meet Ken Conley before the stage yesterday (in addition to being a great photographer, Ken is a really nice guy). When I saw him again after the stage, I found out that he actually had a chance to ride on the back of one of the motorcycles and take some shots. Very cool! Check out some of the resulting images on Ken’s blog and on his photo site.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot, for any of you who are only interested in the bikes, you can my skip the race shots and go straight to the photos that I tagged TdG08bikes. Of course, I recommend that you look at all the shots, but I just want to give you the option.

Time to run. I have to get ready for the Brasstown Bald stage tomorrow. Can’t wait; it’s a tight race so stage six will probably decide the winner.

    surf-the-arts, thanks, glad you liked them.

    bikesgonewild, I was glad you mentioned “electro-tech fabrics” because your comment immediately reminded me of that article, which I found incredibly interesting. I just wish I had thought to mention it in the original post. Oh well, that is why everyone should read the comments. The blog is a 2-way communication medium and some of the best stuff is in the comments.

    By the way, good race recap. You should be an announcer.

    Hey James, it was great meeting you out there. I hope to run into you at Brasstown Bald — bring a raincoat! :)

    Ken, it was great meeting you too. Luckily, I was able to leave the raincoats in the car for Brasstown.
    It turned out to be a beautiful day. Now I just need to sort through all those pictures I took.
