Trackside Fashionista


A good photog knows how to blend, how to become part of the backdrop, how to see and not be seen. That's why when the photog affectionately known as 'Chim-Chim' wades into the Madhouse that is Bowman Gray Stadium on race night, he does so in audacious, trademark style. A high-octane orange shirt, delightfully oversized rig and trousers so splashy they confuse airplane pilots splashing overhead. But I come not to mock the wily Amernick, but to praise him. See, he's a highly-seasoned shooter, a fierce competitor and a funny guy who really knows how to kill time at a crime scene. Who cares if his pretty new bride is dressing him in Garanimals? I don't but - but then again, I once wore faded jorts and a wrinkled hula-girl shirt to an autopsy presser. No wonder they didn't invite me back.

In theater, we always dressed in black as stage hands... Perhaps in this case a beer can costume would have been a good idea?

We actually had a guy quit once when they instituted a dress code after he showed up at a black tie event wearing blue plaid bermuda shorts, a neon green long sleeve turtleneck (had to cover the tats) and bright orange Chucks...
