In memoriam Dan Wheldon

by Helen Hooker October. 17, 2011 4019 views

Just as we went to bed last night the sad news came through that the British racing driver Dan Wheldon had been killed in the Indy 300 race in Las Vegas. Although I don??t follow Indy Car racing it??s always great to hear about a Brit doing well in any sort of sport, especially as he won the Indy 500 earlier this year. It seemed appropriate to create a photo in his honour today so I used this model of Kevin??s, lighting it to focus on the driver.
