Fast Cars And Funky Bikes

Photography

I took advantage of easy access to the pit lanes of a drag race to shoot some pictures of the cars and bikes with my new camera and lenses. It’s a 60D and all these pics were shot with the 85mm F1.8 prime lens. Click the pics for larger sized images. I’ll figure out how to do large sizes later.

is it a car? is it a bike? is it a plane?
Although it failed to perform as well as we expected it to, the Y2K was impressive just for being what it is – a bike with the heart of a helicopter.

As you can see, I soon ran out of pithy comments to place under these images:

This car was a bit... square, but it went like the dickens.

    nice clicks – where were these pics taken?

  • This was at Amby valley airstrip, near Pune. I think this was actually one of the first times I used my camera after buying it!
