Day 1

by Jeffrey Dahl on Mar.05, 2010, under Jeff's Blog

I got up at 4 AM this morning.  Everything was packed so I didn’t have much to do. After taking a quick shower, I got dressed, loaded up the truck and headed for the airport.  The great thing about this time in the morning, no traffic!  I parked my car and was shuttled to the airport. Check in and security was fast this morning.  No double checks of my bags this time.

My flights were uneventful.  I was able to catch a nap on the second flight.  I arrived on time in Ontario.  My friend Bob was waiting at baggage claim.  His flight arrived about a half hour before mine.  We are here to shoot a vintage event for Victory Lane magazine.

After getting the rental car, we headed for the track.  The first thing we needed to do was sign the waiver and get our credentials.  With that taken care of it was off to start shooting.  And that was a challenge.  I felt really out of sorts and really rusty.  It was as if I had forgotten how to use the camera or take a picture.  To make it even more challenging, I have never been to this track before and don’t know where the “good” places are to shoot from.

Tomorrow should be a better day.
