    Some photos I took from various corners around the track..... Please let me know which if any you prefer and why, or, which if any you do not appreciate and why. These photos are from the past weekend at Laguna Seca, Monterey California during the 2009 MotoGP / AMA weekend. This is my first photo shoot since I had back surgery 6 months ago and, well, getting around the track turned out to be much more difficult than I ever remember it being. I usually have a backpack with everything but my 300 f2.8 inside.... I thought that the THINK TANK belt system would work out much better as the weight would be below my injury.... It turned out to be a good thing and worked out well. I only had my 300 over my shoulder... Still didn't get around as much as I would have liked. Lucky for me my buddy and fellow photographer Chucke hauled me around in his ATV thing a good part of the weekend. Anyways, here are a few photos, I will add to these at a later time - enjoy.

    Awsome shots.. #2 is awsome with the heat waves behind the rider. I would loved to have gone. So I'm guessing Dani Pedrosa won?

    NICE! I am literally sitting here with the latest issue of Road Racer X and dont see any reason why these photos couldnt be in the mag! Numbers 3 and 6 really give you a good sense of how insane the corkscrew is at Laguna.

    I'll be attending Mid-Ohio today and all of this weekend and I don't think I will be duplicating any of your shots! Those all look fantastic :thumbup:
