Back in 2008, I was fortunate enough to attend the Monaco Formula One Grand Prix. Monaco is ranked up there as one of the most prestigious races a driver and team can win. Having been a Formula One fan for the better part of a decade, I was thrilled to get to see this spectacle in person. If you’ve never seen a lap of Monaco, it is truly something to behold. This was Sebastian Vettel’s 2011 record breaking pole lap. Have a look HERE.
This coming weekend F1 returns to the streets of the gorgeous principality, and to celebrate, I thought I would share some of my favorite photos. I took these approximately one week after I was given my first DSLR. So this was before I even knew I wanted to take photos for a living, much less knew what I was doing with the camera. All the photos were taken with a Nikon D80 with a 55-200mm f5.6 lens. If only I knew what I was doing with a camera when I shot this race.
