Had a great day out with the Eastern Ontario Trail Blazers on the 27th June for their trip up The Gorge near Burnstown. Chris Packham kindly invited us along for a ride in his Jeep. I wasn’t a very well-behaved guest because I spent more time walking with my camera than riding in his Jeep – I hope he wasn’t offended. There was a good selection of cars – Jeep TJs, JKs, and a YJ, a Ford Explorer, a Suzuki Samurai, and a Toyota Landcruiser. It was impressive the way that the little Suzuki kept up with the Jeeps. I always liked the Samurai.
I must point out that these guys were very sensible and safety conscious – it’s only my photography that makes it look like they were charging around the bush!
Today’s Driving section of the Ottawa Citizen had pictures of some rare cars. They included an Amphicar. That reminded me that I spotted one on the back of a barge on the Seine in Paris last year. The only other one I’ve seen is in the Science Museum in London.
A few of my favourite shots from the Ottawa Motorcycle Show earlier this year. A very science-fiction-like exhaust from a Yamaha VMAX, a Yamaha TMAX scooter headlight and a high-key zoom shot of a Harley Davidson.
This was the last Kanata Cruise I attended in 2009. Plenty of motion shots here. I like the wierd patterns made by the lights and reflections and the way the cars get distorted.
I’ll be uploading this year’s galleries and providing information on how to book a photo shoot and other exciting products and services.
Too busy chatting to get a lot of shots on that evening. The pickup will look cool as a black and white print I think.
Not a big showing with the rain but I still got some good shots. The reflections off the wet road added a nice sheen.
I got bitten to death by the mozzies this night but it was worth it!
Another one from last year. Some of my favourite shots in here. I was starting to get a feel for the look I am trying to achieve.
This was my first cruise shoot. It was a lot harder than I thought it would be. I seemed to miss so many shots because the camera was on the wrong settings so it forced me to sit down with the camera and the instruction book to figure out how I could switch quickly between different settings.
