GO BRAVES!



Ready for Fans

Pick a Row...Any Row

My iTunes: All Star by Smash Mouth

Well, several of you were right on! I was at Talledega Motor Speedway in Birmingham, Alabama. I am SO hooked on Nascar now after the feeling of the cars going by me at 180 miles per hour. And my two favorite drivers came in first and second...Jeff Gordon and Jimmy Johnson. I will be sharing more shots from my time there but first I am going to share a few more that I love from some another place I have been recently. I started sensing that I was having an issue with lines....more specifically seats...empty seats.

LOVE them! I hope you all like these!

Take care where you are!

I love the lines in the third shot.

I would have never pegged you as a NASCAR fan. But, I consider myself a stereotype breaker, so why not?

Anna said...

A lot of people have told me that Mark...I am not sure why...I am not surprised by it at all! :)

Kerri said...

Love these shots Anna! I used to be into NASCAR a lot - I actually went to Daytona for the Pepsi 400 in July of 2000 for my honeymoon! We have a small speedway locally that hubby and I and the kids used to go to every weekend. We've gotten out of this as the kids have grown older and want to do their own thing on the weekends. Glad you had a nice time!

That last picture practically dances if you look at it long enough. I love stadiums for precisely this reason: they're such rich playgrounds for folks with a lens and an idea.

AphotoAday said...

More great shots -- I haven't been to a game in decades...

Moi said...

The third shot is right up my alley, Anna ;DDD
am glad you are having fun...will wait to see the shots from NASCAR!!!

CG said...

Fantastic pics as always but I'm not convinced by NASCAR!!

Chad Oneil said...

I love these too!


...about my image of "Susie", actually, the camera was straight, it was that old barn that was leaning ;)

Glad you enjoyed the image. It's good to be back.

Alice said...

This past weekend in Atlanta was a most memorable time for me...and I knew that Anna would be drawn to the rows and rows of seats! Great shots!!!

How cool are you? Went to see the Orioles with my nieces earlier this year. Very fun! Love the second photo. Going to the World Series??? PS #24??? ugh.

kenju said...

Nascar? I can hardly believe it.

Baseball? That's more like it...LOL

i agree with carmi the last shot is overwhelming - was in London yesterday and thought of you and your old home...

Mike said...

Nice shots Anna. I have never been to a NASCAR event but have been to a couple of local races. Teresa had a classroom MOM that was a driver so we had to go cheer her on!

Anna said...

You were in B'Ham??!! I was born there and my grandparents and uncle still live there. I never would have thought you would be into NASCAR. You learn something new every day!

Moksha Gren said...

I'll admit that I don't get the appeal of NASCAR...but then, lot's of folks don't get the appeal of stuff I love either. Pictures of empty seats on the other hand...that I totally get. Count me as part of the chorus singing the praises of that 3rd shot. Very cool.

My best friend is a Nascar fan. I never have figured the attraction. I asked her once what it was that she loved so about it. Her answer? Speed. She loves to be ahead of everyone on the road, so maybe that's why. Jeff Gordon is her favorite too.

bluemountainmama said...

i love these, anna!

my hubby would be sooo jealous.... he's always wanted to go to talladega, but he'd hate your first choice of driver! :) he doesn't follow it as much as he used to, but jeff gordon is his nemesis.

Cubs fan.

Enought said.

JAM said...

The only Braves games I've ever been to were in Fulton County Stadium, now a parking lot for Turner Field.

I love the photos though, that would be fun to wander in the seats a little, like you got to, without them filled yet.

Good stuff!

John Roberts said...

I didn't know you even knew NASCAR existed! I have been to a few races, but I want to go to one at Talledega one day. Three wide at that speed - it doesn't get any better than that!

Blue Wave 707 said...

Interesting shots!

Bet you've seen "Cars" a bunch of times?

The Harbour of Ourselves said...

and you know, i have no clue as to what NASCAR is..... what was it Dorothy said? 'There's no place like home....'

Elaine said...

I love the stadium shots!

Cris said...

Can't wait for the NASCAR photos! Me too... didn't think you would like it, hehe. The lines here are beautiful, the last one caught my eyes.

Natalee said...

i love that you love nascar. ;)
love,
nat

Ash said...

Cool!

photowannabe said...

Can't wait for the Nascar shots Anna. Pretty super shots with all the lines and series of things.
Good stuff as usual.

AC said...

Braves fan, here, so I'm quite partial to the feelings evoked. Such potential excitement and promise - great shots.

Kyle said...

You must be very busy, considering you haven't updated in forever!
