The #WayBackMachine and the cheap seats

Back in December I was on the road for my day job and I shared an image taken from a long abandoned dog track north of Phoenix.  You can see that #WayBackMachine post here.  I am getting ready for another work trip and will be setting up a few more #WayBackMachine posts for while I am gone, but in the meantime I wanted to share this image from that day out at the track.  I actually think these were the mid-level seats and not the cheap seats from when the track was in operation, but after all these years one must ask if it really matters. :-)

For those not familiar with my #WayBackMachine posts, these are images that I have shared before, either on my blog or in my gallery, but are images that I would like to share again because for one reason or another they are important images for me.

    Great shot, man. I love that sunburst through the broken windows. It adds a really nice touch and a little drama.
