Well I spent the past week or so at Monterey Car Week 2008 photographing many amazing cars. The weather was cold to a desert dweller as the fog seldom lifted at several of the venues, but it was worth it to have a chance to photograph so many amazing cars.
I took my time and drove from Phoenix to Monterey. I went thru Yosemite on the way out and Death Valley on the return trip. Both parks provided some beautiful photographs – it was a photographers dream drive. I timed my over nights so that I would hit both parks in the early morning when the light does such amazing things.
Even outside the events the cars were amazing. Every time I turned around there was some amazing car driving by, from Ferraris to Cobras. As my hotel was located at auction central, the cars for both auctions were often parked or driving by the front of my hotel. It was all I could do to keep myself from running inside to bid on some of these amazing cars. Not sure why, but I think spending $2-3 million on a car might put a hole in my budget.
The best thing about the week was the chance to see some amazing cars and spend time with some good friends. Everyone enjoyed seeing some very rare cars.
