Birthday Bash - Project Black #11




Today I went out to celebrate a friend's birthday. We met at Claim Jumper for lunch (yummmm) and then headed off for go-cart racing. I had never done this before. Out of 8 racers on our track...well let's just say I'm not giving up teaching and photography to become a race car driver. Even when hit from behind and being forced to spin out, it was lots of fun. Happy Birthday, Phil!

I sure hope these pictures have enough black to qualify them for Project Black.

Please visit Anna's site to see her Project Black posts as well as the links to all the other participants. There's some good stuff out there!

Wow! I got a head rush just opening up to your blog! Like the pics! Fun stuff! And, did you just dub a new thingy on the previous post (what the heck are those things called...you know; initialls for stuff)-straight out of camera-like it. Like the header (?) or is it just for this set?
