busy day yesterday.
had rained a bit the day and night before. i knew it was completely possible our family member was getting released from the hospital, and that i was going to have to be there with my car, to be the taxi driver.
not knowing the when, i decided to go to the local car show first, check my phone frequently, then i would head out to santa anita, if there was still time.
i was at the los angeles bombs' second anniversary show before eight in the morning. figured, cinco de mayo weekend, and a sunday, i could sleep in a little and still get there to get a parking space.
and i did. my usual parking spot, right up front. and then the club members were there setting up their trophy table and tent.
so i just shot pics of the two or three cars that were there for a good ten minutes, until more cars arrived. the skies were mostly cloudy off and on, and always a chance of rain, but it didn't stop people from showing up.
other photographers arrived, and i met a couple of fellow instagrammers. very nice and talented guys. one had stopped at santa anita first, and realized that the bomb club show had been cancelled because of the rain. thanks. saved me a trip out of the way.
the lot was about half full by the time i took a break, then heard that i needed to get over to the hospital to make my pick up.
i have quite a few decent shots from yesterday, that i hope to have time to post, but who knows what tomorrow will bring.
i rather like this buick eight. caught it during a brief moment of the sun shining through, with colors not muted down by the overcast.
made it to the hospital on time. it did pour on us a while on the way home. as unexpected as that was, the wheelchair on the back of my better half's vehicle got a bit soaked. he's currently trying to clean it up, and hoping the electronics and motor didn't get fizzled.
