more Santa Maria pics...

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Russ B, May 30, 2011.

  1. I finally have all 919 photos of the event album posted up on my fotki site:

    http://public.fotki.com/RussB/rod_and_custom_car/wck-cruisin-nationals-201/

    It was cool, windy weekend with lots of great cars. I had a nice 500 mile drive in my ’51 Ford. The hemi gave me about 12.5 mpg for the trip.

    Here are a few pics, go to the link to see them all.

    Before I had half of the photos up on fotki they already had over 10,000 views, so some of the HAMB folks likely found them already. The album had more than 14,000 views when I finished loading the last photo!

    Russ,

    Just went thru you album of photos. Wow, no one should complain that you didn't get a picture of their car in there.
    Lots of good stuff. Thanks for sharing them.

    It's funny you say that. Not one picture of our Zephyr, unless I'm blind! lol... Awesome coverage though, thanks for the pics.

  5. Sorry, I think you are right. I really did miss hundreds of nice cars. Some I skipped just because I thought I remembered photographing the car from a previous year. But I always miss photos of a lot of the cars. ...the light might be off, there might be too many people in front of the car, there might be another car blocking a clear shot of it, or any of a hundred other reasons that I thought might keep me from getting a decent looking photo. I did get photos of all the award winners; but as a group, they are the poorest photos, bad lighting.
    This year, I was just happy to make the event at all.

    ...and I take photos just for me and my needs, that may be of no use to anyone else, as these:

    I will be doing a deuce frame for another Model A in the future. so I want to figure what profile looks best to me where the body meets the rails.

    No worries, I know exactly how it is. I didn't take pictures of some of my favorite cars this year for some reason. One in particular was a bad ass red 40' Merc that I didn't see in your pictures either...

    Nice work, Russ. Thanks!
     
  30. Thanks Tony. I hardly got to say Hi this year, and did not even get a single photo of your beautiful Ford. Just too many nice cars to see/photograph them all. ...but not a bad problem! See you next year.
