It's been some time since I can remember not quickly turning my neck every time I hear the roar of a passing car. One of my greatest passions are cars and anything that has a motor. I've been engulfed in my love of cars from a very young age. I used to draw nothing but scores of trucks and cars. My family will attest, I always wanted to be a Dump Truck when I grew up. I used to only care about the best of the best. Zero to sixty times and top speeds. As I've matured I have started to understand the beauty in classic cars. Nothing used to compare to the Jaguar XJ220 or the Mclaren F1. But now seeing a stunning well kept Austin Healey, MG or Morgan 3 wheeler can really turn my crank(pun intended).
The All British Classic Car show at the stunning VanDusen Botanical Garden is a perfect place to nourish my love of cars and now automotive photography. With so many some gorgeous little sports cars there was much for my lens to capture.
I've found over the last couple years attending a handful of these car shows that getting a shot of a single car can be tricky. Luckily I think I got a few decent photos in this set. Like this stitched together shot of this older Aston Martin Vanquish. Everyone could use a little James Bond in their lives.
The other thing that I have noticed. The garden always seems to be teaming with wild life. Must be a picnic somewhere nearby.
These moving works of art have captured my heart. I hope to be able to drive at least a few of these in my life time. Have a look at the rest of my gallery and let me know what you think? Maybe one of your favorites is in here too?
