The Reston Town Center Grand Prix is an annual event with a day full of bike races that draw racers from around the country and of course folks in Fairfax County VA who enjoy watching the races. This year (2011) I got there late and got to watch just the final race. This is a great circuit that winds through the blocks of the Reston Town Center offering spectators amazing turns and great bike racing. This was my first time there with a camera and it was quite a learning experience. This is when you realize that you can't just show up at some event without knowing much about it and end up with good photographs. But the learning was good. Perhaps the next time I am at a bike race the photographs will be better. If you want higher resolution versions of a picture you can reach me at techtalkone at ranjanbanerji dot com.
