The Rough Draft

If you can't go through it. Go around it.

Seems like it’s feast or famine when it comes to me and car and bike shows.  One of the guys who was at the Vintage Car Show at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum asked me if I’d like to come out the the Georgetown festival.  I’ve been working in Georgetown for the last month.  I knew I’d be dropping off my wife at the airport on Friday late afternoon so I figured Colin and I could head over to the rally right after.  Of course, the highways out of town were parking lots so we did the back route all the way.

Once we were in Georgetown it became obvious that where I’m working is the new part of town and not the original downtown.  A few hits and misses and an hour later we found it and I discovered a few more roads I’d like to explore further on the bike.  Of course that hour of searching cost me an hour of light so there’s a lot of fill flash going on in these shots.  I’m still trying to decide on the flash I want so these were all done with the 7D’s on camera flash.  It didn’t do too bad for itself.  The rally was really crowded which kept Colin a lot closer to me at first.  Of course once he figured it out, he started his power walking routine.  So I didn’t get to spend as much time setting up my shots as I’d have liked.  Nothing fancy or tilt shifted in these ones, just my trusty Sigma 17 to 70.  The guy who sold it to me was right, it has become my workhorse lens.

She is sexy though.


El Camino!

A nice Beaumont

And it’s nice powerplant. As we know from Mad Max, once the Pockyclypse comes, these are the engines of change and justice.

I was digging this Ford Fairlane.

Fill Flash engaged!

Yeah, that’s nice.


Catching up to Colin at one end of town. As you can see, I’m always a step behind him.

When a flame job goes right.

When a wax job goes right.

This was one of Colin’s favorites.

When I first looked at this image in post, the guy in the upper left hand corner’s face made me laugh. You can’t look like that and be faking it.

It is a bad ass car.

Not too many VWs in the show but this one stood out.


It could totally fly if it didn’t weigh seven tons.

This was quite the car.

This looks like it could take care of a fair bit of gas in short order.

Killer paint job though.

Colin found another car he liked. It does look like fun.

What are 76 Vega owners trying to compensate for?

Time to go home.

I hope you enjoyed these.
