Crystal City, 5.31.2009
"Inadvertently" showed up at Crystal City (Arlington, VA) circuit race. Had planned long bike ride, but hit pain problem, so swung by to catch pro race. Took about 200 pictures and processed and posted 64 here. Pretty high keeper rate. Used same approaches described for Clarendon Cup (post). No autofocus. Light was good, found some mellow shade areas on the route that gave more balanced lighting. Pretty high turnout by mainstream cycling press (kudos to promoter), rocking with $20,000 photo gigs. No envy. I like the simpler street photography mode.
