Racing Colours

In their place with the right subjects black and white photos are wonderful but the capturing the very colourful dummy grid for a Porsche Carrera Cup race at  2013 Australian Rennsport is not the place.Here the colour makes the photo.Leica X1

It was not always so.We used to just accept that most motor racing photos were black and white.But it was a less colourful spectacle in those days.The cars were in national racing colours,people's clothing was drab and of course there was no sponsorship decals.Photo below Pedro Rodriguez,BRM,British Grand Prix 1969 Brands Hatch.Photo by me Leica 3A F2.8 50mm Elmar lens.My only lens at the time.
