FIA World Endurance Championship in Austin, TX

I am currently very fortunate to be experiencing the thrill of motor racing in the pits of the Circuit of the Americas track as a guest of long time friend and Ferrari AF Corse Team driver, Jack Gerber.  A totally different world of which I know pretty much nothing, except that it equates to photo opp on steroids.  The last couple of days have been a series of qualifying rounds and practice laps, but tomorrow is the big event - the six hour endurance race at 11am.  Here are some of the images from today.

This kid loves to fly!

It's fun but scarey to watch kids who are fearless.  They haven't been through experiences that teach them caution, and besides Mommy or Daddy can always be relied upon to catch them.  Such is Gideon's world view.   When he was not yet 2 years old he loved to be thrown high and caught.  Now he is almost 3 and too heavy to safely play that game. An acceptable alternative is to be thrown from water.  The mind boggles at what he'll be up to this time next year.

A Tourist in my Town

One of the projects I have been working on lately is to gather images for a South Carolina Tourism organization for their 2014 marketing publication.  There were many images on their list that I already had, and a few that I didn't have but that I could take without too much effort.  This weekend had me grabbing those last few to finish up my submissions.  Here are a couple of them.
