A Hundred Steps
There was a car show in Fort Meyers at the Jet Blue baseball park – where the Boston Red Sox team do their Spring training. J loves car shows and especially swap meets – he needs some parts for a car he needs to fix up. After graciously going places with me, like the Everglades, it was only fair that I go with him.
This is what I saw within the first 100 steps from our car in the parking lot –
Elephant Ears always sound sooooo good but luckily we had just had a nice, big, healthy breakfast and I wasn’t hungry. And I didn’t stop at 100 steps either, I had over 4,000 before I left. We both agreed it was a really good show.
I enjoyed looking at the cars and especially trying out the new monopod I bought for my camera. I was pleased because it provides a bit more stability than hand-holding a camera, but is also easy to carry around and use in crowded places.
I haven’t been pleased with most photos I previously took of old cars. I approached this as practice and with a journalistic open mind – attempting to show the wide range of cars that were brought and shown off by their owners. As I edited them and asked J to identify his favorites, I realized that I have a whole lot of bias and I like it that way. I was pulled to some cars because they triggered something inside, either from my past or maybe an “excitement” that says it would be fun right now. Here is a gallery of my favorites with comments.
Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week was to take a photo within 100 steps. I did that but just couldn’t stop myself from walking a few more and taking a few more fun fotos. You can check out more by clicking:
