Straying from Monrovia again, this time to Arcadia, our neighbor to the west.
Went to the 2nd Photography Day at Santa Anita Race Track last Friday. The day is geared toward photographers of all levels and started at Clocker's Corner with morning workouts (pictured above). That was followed by a tram tour; breakfast; a couple of workshops with a Canon tech and a Q&A with Tom Abahazy of Benoit Photo, trainers John Shirreffs (Zenyatta) and Jeff Metz and jockey Chantal Sutherland (who also has a role in the upcoming HBO series "Luck" being filmed at the track).
Best of all, you are free the whole day to take photos to your heart's content.
