Hot Rods & Customs at Night – 2013 GNRS Favorites
Hot Rods & Customs Long Exposure Photography
It’s never supposed to rain in Southern California! But it did and everyone attending the 2013 Grand National Roadster Show made the best of it. When the rain let up, I took full advantage shooting this vibrant 1950 GMC pickup owned by Eric Conner of El Cajon, CA.
I couldn’t stop at just one… but I noticed on nearly the last couple pictures I wanted to take that my lens had water drops all over it. Luckily for this pic, you can’t really see it cause it’s hiding in the grille. There looks to be a dent below the headlight, but that’s not a dent, it’s just a water drop! (click to see the water droplets!)
I had so much fun with it, I decided to do a few more… (minus the rain this time)

Outside the Suede Palace – This is the Scene
This isn’t a very long shutter, but I wanted to include it to get the vibe of this area. At first, it kept everyone out of the rain, but then it was the place to be for good times and a cold beverage with friends and fellow car club members. Thanks to the Throttle Kings for another example of never ending hospitality.
I welcome your feedback.
