I just got this photo from a professional photographer who was on-site at the race. It's from a lap sometime around 7:00AM on Sunday morning (just starting to warm up enough to roll the arm-warmers down a bit but cool enough to keep them part-way up in case I wipe out, haha). It's an excellent quality action photo, the speed coming around that corner is absolutely frozen in time. The front tire just off the ground with dust in front of the rear tire. Fine hair off the back of my left arm. I'm even in mid-blink which makes me look pretty sleepy/dopey and at that time I guess I was. Wait, are you supposed to operate fast moving machinery when you're that tired? Blogger doesn't allow for a good quality photo based on their compression factors, click here to check out the real quality of the photo (don't worry it's only 500KB).
This other photo is hard to understand without a description. I took it yesterday while Evan was jumping and spinning to Johnny Cash in the living room of all things. I managed to get him frozen in mid-air with the light directly behind him while he was pulling these radical 360 spins way up in the air. I never taught him that, what the heck, he's only 2.5 years old???
