where in the world is JHo?

while at the NNCS bristol night race, T and i decided to try to find JHo and Chump in the crowd. this is a bit of a daunting task considering the enormous amount of people who attend the night race, but i was up for the challenge. i knew approximately where JHo was and T called him to have him wave his indians jones hat to help. after several unsuccessful attempts, being dejected, i took a final pic and as i was putting the camera down, out of the corner of my eye i saw his bright yellow shirt on the view screen, but as i said i was putting the camera down. it happened so quickly i couldn't find him precisely again, but i had a more refined search area, so i turned to my GRAW2 training... "spray & pray". i just took loads of pictures of the vast crowd in the now more specific area to analyze later. after all, this was a bristol race, and i had drinking to do and racing to watch.

today, i analyzed the pix, and wouldn't you know it. out of the 20 or so pix i took, only 2 or 3 were clear, and i actually found him in two of those three. fancy. so here's the pic. try to find him (HINT: he's wearing a bright yellow shirt and looks downtrodden, he'd taken off his indian jones hat at this point). you can click on the picture to see a larger version for better hunting. if you can't find him, you can click here where i circled him. you can see them in order, left to right: leslie, chuggie, chug, and JHo.

i tried the same thing with ChumpAss, but he thinks the scoring pole was DIRECTLY in our way (what luck). again, i did my "spray and pray" technique, so now i'm just waiting to hear back from him as to some landmarks, sections, rows, etc. maybe i can do the same for him. i love my canon S2 IS.
