I tried to get pictures of the Durban A1 GP's that showed not only the cars but also some of the surroundings, the buildings, people. I always enjoy to see spectators in sports images, their expressions and/or body language can really tell a story and make the picture.
An example is the reaction of some of the crowd as Adrian Zaugg driving the Team South Africa car spins during his qualifying run.
Spectators viewing from the balconies of the Blue Waters hotel. I've seen plenty of pictures taken at Monaco and other street circuits where people are watching from buildings and I was trying to replicate that sort of image.
The next picture was taken during the first event in 2006. It was a rainy practice session, at first I was annoyed that I got the three figures in the shot but in fact they really make the picture and it's now my favourite pic from that event. The same image was also published in Durban's Metrobeat magazine.
Another shot that features the Blue Waters hotel. The clouds in the sky add a nice dramatic touch.
Taken from a similar position as the previous pic but with a telephoto instead of a wide angle lens.
