These were taken last night (May 27, 2005) at Oglethorpe Speedway Park in Pooler, Georgia during the 2nd Annual Race of Champions (Dirt Track).

Allphotos were taken with a Konica Revio KD-510z using the built in flash at ISO 200, at shutter speeds slowed down tobetween 1/15 and 1/30 second to pick up more ambient light, instead of using the camera defaults of 1/60th second or faster shutter speeds and ISO 100 with flash.The slowershutter speeds I used at ISO 200 caused a touch of motion blur from ambient light exposure in a couple of them, but it was worth the compromise for most.

Cropped to 3:2 and downsized for web viewing. Redeye reduced in some using Irfanview. No other image corrections applied.

I think I probably know just as many women smokers as men smokers right now.

The lady smoking in the background of one of the shots (in the stadium seating) is a common occurence here.

In Georgia (and I can imagine the same thing is happening in other parts of the U.S.), we've got some new laws that were recently passed to ban smoking in many places (i.e., some types of restaurants, etc.). Given the number of smokers in the Southeastern U.S., this will probably hurt these businesses some.

The trend for a long timehas less and less room for smokers, with many restaurants no longer allowing smoking. Ditto for most commercial buildings. Smoking is frowned upon more and more here.

The woman wearing the camoflauge pants (smoking in some of her photos) wasactually from Berlin. I chatted with her for a few minutes while taking some photos. But, you see lots of women from this area that smoke, too.
