Barber Vintage Fest

Barber Vintage Fest
This past weekend I went to Birmingham for the 8th Annual Barber Vintage Fest at Barber Motorsports Park. It was the second time I had been to the park. I went back in April for the Indy Grand Prix of Alabama. It was as beautiful as ever and we enjoyed some truly wonderful weather. I went up early for the MotoGiro South event. I drove the chase truck behind all of the vintage motorcycle riders. It was a beautiful drive up and down, the winding route through the countryside of Birmingham.       Above: It was a vintage motorcycle event; Some of the bikes needed a little...

Saints vs Redskins

Saints vs Redskins
The New Orleans Saints have not had a great start. In fact they have had a terrible start at 0-4! At least I got to attend the Saints vs Redskins game and take some shots of the game. Being that our seats are about the 7th row, its almost like being on the field. Not really.. but it's close enough to get a few good shots. So I "snuck" my 70-200mm into the game (It's a 1/2" longer than the max 6" lens they allow us "non-photographers" to bring into the game) and was able to snap off a "few" shots during the game. I say a "few" very sarcastically...

Fishing Down South..

Fishing Down South..
A couple months ago I took a quick two-day fishing trip around Lake Pontchartrain in Louisiana with some family. I had just bought my waterproof camera – in fact it actually came in the mail right before I left to go to Slidell to meet up with my family. So it was great to get to use it right away. That being said, I purchased Nikon's waterproof AW100. All the pictures below were taken with it. First impression were awesome. It has a fairly large dynamic range for such a small camera, and it really packs a punch into one little device.   It was a day and a half of just fishing. We...

The annual – I love my 7D’s 8 FPS!

The annual – I love my 7D’s 8 FPS!
A few weeks ago I spent the week on Ono Island in Alabama. Even with the high water and crazy rip current out in the Gulf because of TS Debby, in the bay we still could take the boat out and do some tubing. I strapped on my 70-200mm to my 7D and found my position on the back of the boat and fired away. I guess the only bad thing about shooting 8 FPS is that it does shoots 8 FPS and the pictures rack up quick. I had about 30 keepers that I edited out of about 800 shots. But in this case I would rather have gone through all the rejects to get THE shot than miss...

Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama

Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama
My wife and I had a great weekend at the Indy Race this past weekend. There were races Friday and Saturday, with the Indy Lights and Indy Races on Sunday.  We didn't get to the races until Saturday so we missed all the bad weather that passed through Birmingham on Friday.   Barber Motorsports Park (Brief History) The park was completed in 2003 through the vision of George Barber (Barber Dairy). Rumor has it that George Barber had some initial troubles with environmentalists, who stated that the park wouldn't meet their high standards and would cause harm to the area's wildlife,...
