Tampa Bay Downs

Saturday was hat day at Tampa Bay Downs. Pay your $2 admission and get a free hat. My dad buys several extra ones to give to friends. You'll see Dad sporting his new hat in some of the shots in the lengthy slide show below. (So give it time to load.)

I don't usually bet on the races. The gamble for me is whether I can get any of the horses in focus as I snap shots of them. I did get a couple of new lenses to help me accomplish this but, truth told, many of the action shots needed a lot of cropping to make them presentable.

As mentioned in a recent post featuring pictures I took at Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo, the Flash file only works in Firefox on my computer. Firefox is a free download so if you don't have it, you can click here to get it.
