Rally Dakar is over, and, as the dust settles, I’m going through hundreds of Dakar images I still haven’t processed. I’m not a photographer, and this was my first attempt ever to capture images with something other than my phone. They aren’t stunning action shots – but they tell a story.
Here is my Dakar in photos.
