It's been a REALLY long time since I've been to one of these things. In face, I can't even remember the last import car show I've been to. It had to have been something like Hot Import Nights when I was in high school. Fast forward 10+ years and here we are at cool little show down the street in a super cold parking lot. No, that's not a typo for "cool parking lot", I was legit getting frost bite.
I tried to do a little some thing different with my photos at the event. Same cars, same people, there's nothing that will make my photos look any different from anyone else's, but something I've acquired now as a portrait photographer that is almost a bit of a curse. When I take a photo of something that isn't human, it gets extremely boring. I thought I wasn't going to have a problem catching fellow import enthusiasts reacting to these cool cars, but everyone would see the camera and jump out of the frame. I had to ask people to go about their business several times. It was pretty funny, but I can't remember the last time people gave photographers so much respect. That was very cool, thank you to everyone who stopped right in there tracks to let me and everyone else with a camera take photos. You never see that, thank you.
The second best part of the day, these damn RC Drift Cars. Years ago Drifting was all I ever cared about, but then life took over and I found myself filming drifting videos on the sidelines. Still, I absolutely adored drifting, but life took a different turn for me and I was no longer a part of the drifting scene. Time has passed and although I would love to get back on the track again, I don't see it happening any time soon. What I absolutely do see happening is me getting deep into this RC Drifting world.
I had the opportunity to drive my friends really fun RC car and it took less than a second and I was hooked! Do not be surprised if you come back here and find many more RC Car Drifting photos and/videos, I'm in love.
As I said, the RC Cars was the 2nd best thing of the day. What was the first? Well, let's get really cheesy here. Hanging out with my friends and my family definitely took home first place at today's car show. You can view the rest of the photos by CLICKING HERE.
Hey, maybe I'll see you at an event soon. Chances are, I don't even know which one you are talking about so you can CONTACT ME HERE or leave a comment below and let me know when and where the next cool event will be held!
