Danica Patrick, some ASU baseball and a ferret

This has been a fun long weekend of shooting random stuff. I was assigned NASCAR on Friday and ended up spending upwards of 2-3 hours hovering around Danica Patrick’s garage area trying to get a good look for a Sunday sports centerpiece. I also shot some various festivals, parades, etc. After a pretty wicked-feeling sunburn, I’m glad this weekend is in the books.

Oh yeah, and this happened.
