Event Weekend: Le Mans and Fleet Week (14 Photos)
Posted By: Toshi, 10-11-2009, 11:22 PM

A lot of events this weekend for me. On Saturday I headed out to Laguna Seca for the last race of the season for the American Le Mans series. The next day I went to Fleet Week in San Francisco. The weather was overcast in the city but I'm glad they performed since on Saturday the Blue Angels canceled due to poor visibility. Anyway, here are a handful of photos from both events.

For the car race, I used a combination of both the DA* 50-135mm and DA* 300. For the airshow, strictly the DA* 300.
