Whether you follow the sport or not, there's something mesmerizing about watching a pit crew at work. In less than 15 seconds they can take a race car through the transition form evil handling pig to finely tuned competitor. In under a quarter of the time it will probably take you to read this, four tires come off, four more go on, a full tank of fuel will be dispensed, suspension will be adjusted and they'll even clean your windshield. Which is why they say that races are won and lost not on the track, but in the pits.

Your Turn: Got a photo to support the "Transition" theme? Feel free to share a link in the comments. If you're new to Thematic Photographic or just wondering how this works, you can find out all about it here or better yet, at TP's usual home. Tune in tomorrow for another installment in the Transition theme. Until then, peace yo!

I love to watch the pit crews work. Absolutely amazing.

But, you know what I really love? The sound of the engines. I love that power!
