Photographing four kids together can be tricky and exasperating, trying to get everyone looking pleasant simultaneously.
The first photo is one solution. Take them from behind!
Seems easier with the distraction and props of shiny new cars at the Columbus Car Show. Pretty good cooperation. Especially when they weren’t really thinking about me and my camera! Listening to the finer points of this Mustang by Ford
They were smiling and posing for their Dad in this one. He bought a couple of raffle tickets to win the Cobra, supporting Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
The interior of the Rolls Royce. This was behind a barrier. No one got to touch it, let alone sit inside it.
Headed for home.
Sunday afternoon at the car show in Columbus, Ohio-
my son Mark saw this sign, photographed it and sent it to me on the phone.
I’ve not seen a sign like this before, so maybe it is new to you, too!
It was a gorgeous October day. On the warm side. Guys in T shirts and shorts. Saw a few VW tattoos. I took the scenic route from Columbus as I made my way back home to Pittsburgh.
I drove to VW Westmoreland (which used to assemble VW Rabbits but closed in 1988) to a Euro Car show sponsored by Sendell Motors and organized by Jason Santo Columbo and Josh Volk. (if you click their names it will send you to the events FB page)
It was George with the 1973 VW Thing from the Garfield Art Car Show last week who told me about the Oktoberfest today. Parked next to George was Lenny’s 1964 356 Outlaw Porsche. Lenny told me he spent 13 years restoring it. I should write out THIRTEEN so it sinks in. A labor of love. He’s a certified race flag waver who works at the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix, keeping the drivers safe by signaling with a flag, letting them know what is going on. Lenny has an article in the ARPCA (Allegheny Region Porsche Club of America) but I couldn’t find the specific link to it, sorry.
Some of you may remember the post of Volkswagen Family photograph shot in North Carolina.
Thanks for the tip on the show today, George! So, what do you think, Uncle Frank?
