At the car show, we got there quite early. I was tired, but man was that a great time to take some landscape/scenery shots. The car show was on September 11, 2011 and they had placed American Flags at the entrance to the car show. I found a cool angle where the sun was behind the flag illuminating it.


I was also lucky to have captured this moment, where a veteran is saluting the flag as the military march through, right before the singing of the National Anthem.



I had the pleasure of photographing a car show a few weeks ago in Kansas City. I’ve never really shot classic cars, or any car for that matter. It was a fun challenge to take some good photos of the 100+ classic cars, trucks and bikes. Here are some of my favorites. The 2nd car below was the grand prize winner!

“When you’re a carpenter making a beautiful chest of drawers, you’re not going to use a piece of plywood on the back, even though it faces the wall and nobody will ever see it. You’ll know it’s there, so you’re going to use a beautiful piece of wood on the back. For you to sleep well at night, the aesthetic, the quality, has to be carried all the way through.”

—Steve Jobs

This weekend, we were in Kansas City to help Rebecca’s college roommate put on a car show with her church. I photographed the event for them and had a hard time getting good shots of the bikes…. They aren’t very photogenic with all the pipes, wires, plastic, etc. I decided to get at least one good photo of the bikes… by getting a bit creative.
