A major event that takes places annually in the Tampa area is the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg. This year it take place on March 13 with festivities beginning on March 11. It is a part of the Verizon IndyCar series and the track offers 14 turns that makes it a blast to watch. I believe this event will be a great success for my photojournalism project. I think I will be able to show more than one type of image that will catch my readers’ interest. My signature shot I believe would be a great picture of a race car in action as that is the main area of focus. I think a great overall shot would be a wide photo of a large portion of the track. Other photographs I hope to snap are ones of the racing fans, a picture of the checkered flag being waved, and other events going on in the racing world and atmosphere. I along with much of the local residents do not follow racing and know very little about IndyCar events and the fun environment offered to residents.
