The Main Street Cruise at Abacoa

The September monthly meetup for the PBC Photo Walkers was at Abacoa in Jupiter. One of our members recommended this location as a great photo opportunity for our group. Since this event is held on the first Saturday of every month, planning it was quite simple.

I think we had about 20 photographers show up but I was told later that some came a little late and didn't hook up with the group. Many of us had never attended this car show and we were really pleasantly surprised at the festive atmosphere and huge assortment of classic cars and trucks.

I came home that night all excited to show my pictures to Gregg, since he loves a good car show but couldn't make this trip. I soon realized that he was more interested in seeing photos of entire cars, instead of the little pieces and parts of cars that I had fun shooting.

I only ended up with a few decent pictures of entire cars (actually not even the whole car).

What I have learned is that someone who enjoys looking at old cars (and not necessarily artsy photography) may prefer many of the images created by some of the other photographers who attended this event. At the time of this posting our meetup group's September album showcased 148 photos from the car show and as usual, I'm extremely impressed with the talent in our group.

As a photographer, I try to look for the fun and interesting shots. While taking pictures at my first car show with my first SLR last year, I realized that reflections in cars can be super cool. I give my friend Jack 100% of the credit on finding the reflections in the second picture below. I completely copied him.



Of course... it's always fun to take pictures of our friends taking pictures (especially when I can also take advantage of the previously mentioned reflection in an amazingly clean car). Below is Art, Jack & Dina.



Also, my "photographer's eye" has learned to constantly be on the look out for other interesting shots, like the guy watching the festivities from his balcony and the group playing poker.



I really love our photography group! We always have a great time getting together and every month I'm amazed all over again at the talented friends I have made.
