Art & Inspiration Beer Drinkers and Hell Raisers - Day of the Drags portraits 2009

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by beatnikontinental, Dec 9, 2009.

  1. I posted some of these last year - a good friend and amazingly talented photographer, George Brainard has been taking portraits out at the Day of the Drags show. He did it again this year and got some really great stuff. You may recognize some familiar faces in there.

    Check the who gallery at:

    What great shots.

    Ya know, a photo album like this dedicated to HAMB members would be pretty damned cool.

    That way, when we are out and about at shows et al, we could see who our members of the flock are.

    George is really good. That pic of Willie, the tech and fuel czar, says it all. Classic.

    Like I was telling George a couple of weeks ago, I don't know if I want to know everything about some of these folks, or just stare at the pictures and let a story come to mind. Most of them are great snapshots of people having a good time at a day at the track. Others are simply pure art.


    On another note, he did a great job capturing the obvious sexual tension between Dennis and Robert.

  23. You took the words right outta' my mouth!
    Started out saying to myself, "just people pics -- no hot rods" and then I was totally drawn in by the fact that they are ALL great portraits. You're an artist, man!
    Thanks
