Every large city has its classic car aficionados, and the Albuquerque area is no exception. Yesterday about 300 of them (and their cars) gathered at a public park in Rio Rancho (a suburb of ABQ) on a beautiful, cloudless New Mexico day, and my photo buddy, Barry Schwartz, and I couldn't resist the photo op. (Yeah, I know, it's sort of a guy thing.)
There were Mustangs and Stingrays and GTOs . . .
Caddies and Volkswagens . . .
and a red, red Rolls . . .
along with everything in between . . .
. . . even a DeLorean (sans Flux Capacitor) . . .
Because the cars were parked so closely together, and because there were so many people walking around them, it was difficult to get a clean shot of an entire car. So for the most part we went for tight shots of detail. And, oh, what cool detail there was . . .
And of course we had to work for those interesting angles . . .
At some point I realized that many of these cars, which I longed for when I was a teenager, are now 50 years old and, by definition, antiques. But we're all still going strong!
