Event: AutoCon 2011 v.1


I haven’t really had time to read on forums and other blogs about AutoCon because I’ve been so busy, but if I had to guess at what people are saying about it I would imagine some of the comments would be unjustly negative.  People have a tendency to exaggerate things when they don’t go their way; but that’s just human nature.  Anyway, aside from a few hiccups during roll-in that caused delays, I had a great time at this show.  I didn’t attend last year, and had been really look forward to this one.  I assumed the show would draw quite a crowd, so we showed up pretty early to have some time to shoot before gates opened at 12.  Justin was great at organizing the media list, but unfortunately, due to the somewhat unorganized parking, media didn’t get to go in until general admission time.  Again, not a huge deal, but it defeats the purpose of having a media list.  With that said, I’d like to thank Justin and everyone else involved with Auto Connection and the cause it supports.  I look forward to a bigger and better show next year – and of course, with time, things will get more organized.  OK, if you’ve read this much your probably wondering why I opened with a shot of a M3.  NDF is mainly Japanese, but I couldn’t help snap some shots of the German’s at this show.  There were some awesome BMW builds.  Click past the break for volume 1 of the coverage!

Event: Wekfest LA 2011 v.2


Let’s get on with some more Wekfest LA coverage from Long Beach, CA.  I ended up writing this entire post before I even wrote the introduction.  I never know how to start off the second part of event coverage.  This second part has a huge variety of cars, which is pretty cool, but it made it look kind of sloppy.  The grass section was gigantic and hard to cover methodically, so my pictures are a bit scattered.  At this point I was also running purely on Red Bull and Skittles, so it’s likely that I got a little sidetracked. Oh well, enjoy.
