MX blast from the past
I’ve been going through drives and organizing files. I came across my archives of motocross races and it brought back memories of dehydration, dust, mud, noise, twisted ankles, life-flights, broken bikes, pretty girls (pit tootsies), and a lot more. I have socks that still show the telltale stain of the red sand from the track.
I started posting some faves on flickr and invite you to check in on them occasionally. http://www.flickr.com/photos/joelspring/
Here are a few to get you started…
A lot of what’s flying in the air ended up on me and my camera. I usually had a cover on it for days like this and after the event I spent time with a mini-vac getting it out. After my own shower there was a heavy deposit of sand around the drain. For several days after I was coughing it up. I really appreciated the weatherized design of my old Canon 1Dx MKII.
