Good morning folks! It is Sunday morning and I got in late last night from the Street Rod Show in Louisville. I am in the process of reading and responding to all or your great comments while I was gone.

I am catching up on things today after being gone for a few days. The car show was overwhelming and I was lucky enough to have a great response to my photographs. I sold many more than I was expecting. I would take pictures of the cars, return to the hotel and print them out for them the next day. I had more requests than one person could print so I am shipping several now that I have returned home.

I will drop a car photo now and then just to give you an idea of the types of autos that were there. Don't worry though...I won't turn the blog into a Car Show! The official count of cars in the show was somewhere north of 12,000! There were about 80,000 people a day through the gates...quite an event!

Hi Dan. Sounds like an amazing event! I've never been to a car or boat show that big.

I can imagine how busy you must have been, snapping away. What fun.

I love to shoot Hot Rods for their design, and derelicts for their rust and character.

Dan, I'm so happy for you! That IS ALOT of cars and I can imagine how overwhelmed you must have been, only imagine. Even now that you are home, you're still in the process.

I get overwhelmed when I take about 200 photos of an event, not knowing how to arrange them, what to share, having to title and tag them....etc. etc.

I am glad that you had this opportunity, you deserve it, Dan. Your photography skills, patience and appreciation are a gift and it does show through your work :)

Glad your back.

No surprise to us that you would do well selling your photographs! It's a real talent!

So many cars, so little time!

It was something to behold. I'm not a collector or anything with the cars...just love to photograph the paint jobs! I am posting several pictures from the show today.

Heather...thanks! Remember when I told you back in July that I was going? I had no idea what type of response I would get but it worked out great! Thanks for your kind words.
