Doh! This was suppose to post today, not yesterday. Mea culpa. Anyway, I love the very warm tones from the last shots of the day. Nothing better than a late summer sun. Sad to see it go.
And so concludes my little photo series of OBRA bike racing at PIR. If you’d like to see all the shots I took, click here to go to the LB Archive gallery.
Here’s Kevin again going for it along the S bank on the west side of the track. That sun flare is real, BTW.
Today I’m starting a 6 days of shooting in a row. Each day is either for a different client or in different location all over Oregon and Washington.
When it rains it pours!
I have a very busy week coming up, so not much time for commentary. I like this shot though. A rider ahead of the pack. No crowds cheering her on. Just sole determination to push herself and stay in the lead.
A strong metaphor for life in general.
This is Aaron getting in the zone before the race. He’s a pretty big deal, in case you didn’t know.
Earlier this week, my buddies Kevin and Aaron invited me out to watch them race at PIR. I’ve seen bicycle races before, but never on an auto race track. The idea is so cool, I just had to go. It was fun to watch and even more fun to shoot.
With late summer sun and open skies, I got some really intense shots of the guys flying around hairpin corners in packs of riders only inches apart. I’ll be posting my favorites over the next several days and then putting up everything else in the Archive.
I think the racing bug bit me, too, while I was there. I totally want to ride now.
