Prologue photo roundup

There's a wealth of great photos available from the prologue.

I thought the quality of shots on Flickr had taken a quantum leap forward, but it turns out some joker just uploaded Graham Watson's pictures to his own account. Still, Francois Schnell has a nice group of Tour snaps from yesterday; I love the composition of this one.

Speaking of Watson:

(l-r) Leipheimer, Landis, Hincapie from GrahamWatson.com prologue gallery.

Also, Apple offers a nice profile of Graham Watson, who touts the company's Aperture workflow software.

Sammarye's recommendations were spot on:

Mark Shimahara at BikeZen:

(l-r) Moreau, Valverde, Hushovd, one for the ladies from BikeZen's Prologue Gallery.

The revelation of the Tour for me so far is Caroline Yang. Here's the entry page for her prologue pictures, and she also shot the Tour in 2005 and in 2004.

And, of course, CyclingNews.com has the most extensive Prologue photo gallery. Looking for Sebastian Joly, Marzio Bruseghin, and Magnus Backstedt:

Also, the saddest car in Strasbourg.
