Whoops, was I standing there?

The depth perception of this photo is a bit off, but that's me in the orange vest behind the still photographer. I swear I was about 6-7' back from the road, but the combination of the car cutting the corner and the angle of the shot makes it look waaay closer. Definitely one of the closest calls I've had in a while!

Looks like that was a close one, way to stick with it for the pictures.

That race was in Atlanta Michigan, in the northern half of the southern part of MI. And it's not like I had a whole lot of choice but to stick with it, there wasn't much room to back up ;)

I got an email basically telling me to "be safe". Inside of the corner is supposed to be the "safe" zone, but judgement and common sense play a big part. Next time I'll stand further back into the corner :lol:


Also, after the two of us had our scare, ou should have seen the crowd of photographers on the inside of the corner for the second run through!

Wow, that was a close one! I'd hate to loose my number one MN 3/S volunteer. ;)
