It’s no secret…if you know me (Gavin), you know that I L-O-V-E cars. It goes God, My wife, my family, photography, and then cars. Fast cars…exotic cars…cars that make you ruin the apholstery when you sit in them. Yeah, those type of cars. Currently my heart is torn and I’m caught in a vicious love triangle between the Lamborghini Gallardo and the Audi R8 as my mid-life crisis of choice. I’ve already got the green light from the wifey that one of them can some day be in the garage, so we’ll see :)
This love of all things that go vroom-vroom has been instilled, no, indoctrinated into my DNA by my car-crazy family. As long as I can remember, I’ve gone to auto shows and read Road & Track since I could say “Super-charged V8.”
Every year it is a family event to trek up to Los Angeles for the LA International Auto Show. This year it just so happened to fall on my birthday; awesome! Having been made an amazing b-day breakfast by my loving wife, we met up with my family and headed up to see what the Germans and Italians had cooked up this year (sorry Detroit, not a fan)!
I brought along our new Nikon D3 camera and decided to put it through the paces in the low flourecent lighting and see what it could do! It didn’t disappoint :)
Here are a few images! Sadly, the hot imports were a no show for the first time ever this year….recessions are lame.
P.S. If you have a sweet car, and want some free photos of your baby, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org . I work for joyrides :)
