Photographer’s insight: Someone asked me if I worked for a company that distributes paints. Whatever, from a photographic point of view, I was impressed by the eye-catching graphics of the brand new circuit de Las Americas in Austin. The escape routes wear the American national colors. And of course I tried to use them to customize my photos, to make them different, telling of this peculiarity of the track. It was not easy, the heat made things more complicated, however, an opportunity like this should be exploited!
