Philly Park & the Daytona 500

Today we spent a couple hours at the Philadelphia Park Racetrack & Casino. I took quite a bunch of the "ponies."

I'm not as happy with my "stop action" attempts today as I was during my last visit to Philly Park in January. I got a lot of blurry images this time in comparison. It was overcast today...no sun like last time. I had the camera on shutter priority and the shutter speed was super high for these and I had the ISO bumped up pretty high because they were coming out dark during my test shots.

These were the best of the bunch for today's short visit:

I taking shots of the horses and their handlers...and this guy is a particular favorite of mine. I think this worked well with this conversion.

After Philly Park we stopped home for a few minutes and then headed over to my brother in law's house to watch the Daytona 500. I brought my camera with me (of course) and snapped some shots of the party. :)

Welcome Race Fans!

Things were heating up with the race!

Had to take some family shots while David was here from Florida for a visit:

David & his girlfriend Julia:

I'm not a big car racing fan but for fun we all picked drivers out of an envelope and put $10.00 in the pool to make the race more interesting. Guess who won the $50.00 pot???? Me! One of my drivers won the race!!! Yay!

That certainly made my night! I'll have to put that towards some studio lighting. :)
