Hello? (tap tap) Is this thing on? Is anyone out there? Dang it! Where are your transportation shots? I don't care if it is a car, a truck, a bus, a trolley, a skateboard, feet, or a piggy back ride.

Take your pics and post them! ♥

Cricket, definitely let us know the next time he goes out to the track (San Antonio Raceway). We'd love to get some shots of his Stang! We're just a few minutes away and the next time he goes, you should come too so we can meet and shoot together.

Thanks snakeair! Photographing drag cars is a must do for anyone that can get access trackside, it is one heck of an experience!

Cricket, that is sweet! Those were taken at San Antonio Raceway. I double what QT said!

Yup! Same racetrack. He prefers street racing (shhhhhh...) but still goes to the track now and then.

You can always tell when I am shooting something I am not as passionate about, because I add far more post processing than normal. I love shooting people and nature. City stuff is much more challenging for me because I tend to shoot what I feel, and don't tend to "feel" much about city life. (grin)

I love the challenge though, and learning more every day.

Very cool! I looooove mustangs! In the past, I have owned a 2000 GT with some basic mods, and before that I had an '89 notchback coupe with a 347 stroker, etc etc. That was my little drag car.

Ok.. I have to add another car photo... this one was taken in Vegas last year. I forgot which casino it is in though.

Oh yeah, I am no stranger to some street grudge matches! I am actually a member of WFO Racing Team. I will let you figure out what WFO stands for! =P Speaking of which, I have some DVD's that a member in our Nebraska chapter creates and sells on the Internet that I think your son would really get a kick out of! Lets just say there are some 9 second cars street racing for some pretty hefty jackpots..

You got it! Pedal to the metal! =) As an old man who I refer to a lot as my "second dad" who originally introduced me to drag racing and harleys, etc.. always said.. Don't let off that pedal till you're sideways! This is what he told me as he helped me get strapped into his old racecar which ran low 9's in the 1/4 mile and was putting about 1000HP to the ground.

Thinking either one of these would make good transportation.

I love that first one Chance. For some reason it has almost a human look to it. Reminds me of that herbie movie. (Now I am showing my age!)
