Got up early Sunday and Steve drove me up to Schenley Park and dropped me off early after we picked up coffee in Shadyside.
Had a hat and long sleeves but wasn’t thinking how very hot it would be in the sun all day.
I had another conversation with one of the wives, the quilter and crocheter from Wisconsin whose husband races his MG, I dropped off a flash drive of photos from Friday and asked where the best place to stand and watch and photograph would be.
A nice man walked me down a pathway and suggested the start/finish line. Next year one of the curves!
I spent a lot of time adjusting the camera as the sun came in and out behind clouds. Shady is better.
I met a few photographers and spoke with them about their strategies. Fortunately the cars go eight laps so I had time to try different settings to get the photos of the individual cars. My goal was to photograph the first time racers I wrote about from Friday. Many of your saw the wedding photos of Jessica and Matthew from Saturday so I missed the VGP.
