Saratoga As I See It Revisted

As we shared on the blog last year, when Big Joe is not shooting weddings in the summer, you can probably find him at the Saratoga Race Track, in Saratoga Springs, New York. As said before, if you have never been, plan a day now. It is a must-see. Here is a collection of wonderful images, that Big Joe captured in the 2013 summer racing season, as he sees it.
