Daytona Dog Racing

AW0_8462

With an off day in Daytona, I was looking for something to do today. Another photographer, Patrick Smith and I were talking about how awesome it would be to go and shoot photos of dog races. It’s something you don’t see everyday and it might make for some cool pictures.

Once arriving at the Daytona Dog Kennel and Casino we checked out the track and couldn’t believe how close we were to the dogs, which should make some interesting pictures.

So all in all it made for a pretty interesting day. Enjoy!
