Accidental Car Show

Yesterday after work, Mike and I headed to Scottsdale to pick up a door skin for the Chevelle. In the very same parking lot, we stumbled upon one of the longest running weekly car shows. Apparently every Saturday night people bring out their cars and motorcycles. Cars ranging from the 20's to modern day suped up cars and trucks. Needless to say, it was a happy accident.

Mike was very much in his element. We perused the cars for several hours, stopped and grabbed some local cuisine, then perused for several more hours. As it is an open format car show, cars came and went at various times. After dinner, two 1970 Chevelle's appeared. So of course, studying ensued.

I was enjoying the reflections off the shiny paint.

Its great to see a singular love of automobiles crosses so many barriers. The owners varied as much as the spectators. It was a nice evening with my husband; an unexpected date.

HDR app Adventures

Life has been relatively adventure-less lately: shift change, nerve blocks, different days off as the Adventure Husband. A shift change has resulted in walks with the kiddos at dusk. Walks with the kiddos means playing with the various new photography apps on my iPhone. My newest obsession: HDR. HDR requires two photos of the same object. The camera chooses a low light and high light picture then stitches them together. When you attempt to do that with busy dogs you get over lap or ghost like effects.

 Do four ears hear better?

I find joy in getting the "right shot". Thank the stars for digital so I can take a million pictures to get the right shot.
