This is a pretty big dang deal – something that digg users have been wanting for some time now.
Photobucket, which I wrote a few things about earlier today, will be adding Digg buttons to photos on its site.
See the details over the the Digg Blog.
Update @ 9:19 p.m. ET: Digg Images is now up and they’re Digging away at it.

Like a Flickr for the forbidden, ‘Strictly No Photography’ features user-submitted photos taken in all the places where photography is strictly off-limits. Concerts, museums, classified government installations, nothing’s sacred. Check out these cool pics before they get a cease & desist!

The 2007 WERA Grand National Finals were held at Road Atlanta on October 13. I took a trip down there with my cousin Joe, who’s an avid motorcycle enthusiast. This was my second year of watching and shooting the WERA GNF. I took my trusty Canon Rebel XT and Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8. While this setup performed quite well at Road Atlanta, due to the track setup, I could’ve used a longer lens and/or more megapixels. 200mm wasn’t quite long enough to reach out on some of the corners. I would like to have had a EF 100-400mm L or something longer to really get in tight. Unfortunately, those weren’t an option for me and I was limited to cropping in on some of those shots that were way out there, which is where more megapixels could’ve come in handy.
That said, here’s a few of my keepers from the day:
Race start coming out of Turn 1.
Close in on Turn 1.
More from Turn 1. Seeing a pattern here? Turn one was the one place that I really had close access to and the light was on the face of the riders coming at me.
Coming out of a deep lean on Turn 1.
Showing off a bit out of Turn 10B.
If you dig these, you can see more on my Smugmug page. Also, you can check out Steve Beck’s photos from Road Atlanta. I met Steve at Road Atlanta this year. He had a great setup for shooting bikes at Road Atlanta – Canon 1D Mark III and a 500mm f/4 L, which enabled him to really get in tight.
