Off To The Races Next Week: Le Mans, Normandy, and Other Stops…..

For the 5 of you that visit regularly, apologies for the recent absence as I have been uber-busy with the real world career as well as covering a few motorsport events in my ‘neighborhood’.

However, that will change next week as I pack up the cameras and lenses and head for my first invasion of France to attend the 24 Hours of Le Mans.     As a ‘car guy’ it is one of those ‘must do’ bucket list items so off I go.

Never having been there, I’ve spent an unusually large amount of time on the due diligence so that I’m in the best positions at the best times.    I’ve gone as far as memorizing sunrise and sunset times and have a small note pad full of notes from other photographers who have shot there.    I look forward to the 2 or 3 sleepless days from Friday through Sunday afternoon.   I’m hoping for a little bit of rain during the overnight hours to catch some striking images.

After the race, I head to Bayeux which will act as my staging area for visiting the War Memorials and historic points of interest around the various beaches used by American, Canadian, and British forces during their landings at Normandy.    For me, the visit to Normandy will most likely wind up being the most meaningful part of the trip.

As far as my travels are concerned, I’ll be experiencing SAS Business Class for the first time on my outbound flights and will once again enjoy the great Business Class product that LOT Polish Airlines offers for my flights home.

So if you’re a car guy or gal, or a student of WW2, stay tuned during the next 2 weeks as I’ll have a lot of things to share.
