My first editoral shots accepted... NASCAR - It's Bristol... Baby!!

posted on 22nd of august, 2008

I had my first editorial shots accepted last night. None of them made the news page, but, I am pleased they are part of my portfolio. The fall race in Bristol is one of NASCAR’s most sought after tickets and family race night is always a hit. Even though I was sick and it was almost 90 degrees, I decided to take a chance and try to get an editorial or two.

one unexpected treasure was Lois J. Tyler, a sweet little lady who is one of NASCAR's little known legends. 53 years ago she drove, as her husband did, in the Daytona 500 inaugural race. a woman driver in that race must have been the talk around the track.

Anyone familiar with NASCAR knows the amount of sponsor info with a car or driver. Living in Bristol I have thought what a great thing to take pictures of, until I tried to do so for Dreamstime…..logo madness set in….let me tell you.

So when Dreamstime started allowing editorial I was rejoicing , finally I could take pictures and submit them. This has been the first event I have been able to get to this season, I missed the one in the spring due to illness in the family. Unfortunately allergies also come to town, twice a year at my house, always coinciding with race week. I hope before it is weekend is over I can tackle the crowd (our population doubles for these 3 days) and get some more shots of the spectacle that is “ racin’ the way it oughta be” at Bristol !
