Thanks. I dont think any of these will make the final cut. I have a few better shots..I think. Haha getting the overhead shots felt too good to be true. We were told with the proper credentials (I had that) that a few of us could shoot from the cat-walk. I shot practice on Saturday alone up there and thought it was so cool and it had lots a potential. It did feel little like an episode of "Mission Impossible"--almost felt like I should be dressed all in black and stealthy. Haha. My plan was to shoot the C and B main from up there at night and then the A-main car warmups, then head down to the infield. That never happened because I saw the infield was at "photographer full capacity" all night. So I was sh*t out of luck to make it to the infield. I figured that nobody would give up their place down there at that point, so I could go there. Hey, it was all good, I was comfortable hanging out in a vacant press box, complete with a chair (would have preferred my recliner haha) up at a high level most of Saturday. That cat-walk was up even higher and more appealing. I never made it to the cat-walk Saturday night. That was when the arena folks got pissed that there were photogs up there, I heard. I figured something changed when I saw a photog friend being told to get out of there. Bummer. At that point it did feel like a "Mission Impossible" moment again, when I texted my one friends who I thought was still shooting from up there and I told him to get out of there. It felt like a "Mission Impossible" TV show moment--my texting him felt like that I was the guy watching from the van in the street(like on the old TV show)--like:abort mission, here they come, get out of there!" haha. Oh well, it was a great angle to shoot from while it lasted.
