Tour of California
I still want to post fairly regularly, even though I’m not posting a picture of my t-shirt every day anymore. That will make it a little bit harder to figure out what to write about. A little while ago I finally sold my first breakout board. I also just sold my first photograph, after someone contacted me on flickr asking to buy a print. I probably should have charged more. Also, I should set up a store to sell my pictures online, I think. Anyway, now to the real subject of this post…
A little over a week ago, the Tour of California went through Solvang, which isn’t far from me, so I went up there to shoot it. This stage was a time trial, so there unfortunately wasn’t a chance to get a shot of a large group of riders together. Instead, I got shots of each rider shortly after they crossed the finish line. I don’t know who most of them are, because I don’t really follow the sport, but there were a couple I was able to figure out.
Levi Leipheimer started the day in the lead. He won the time trial, and would go on to win the tour.
I don’t know who this is, but he looked right at me and stuck his tongue out, so he gets his picture up here, too.
All of the pictures can be seen in the Tour of California flickr set.
