Weekend at the Dubuque Campgrounds
While I was installing equipment for work in a nearby town, one of the guys I was working with told me that I should check out the Vintage Torque Fest. Turns out, even though at the time I was 80 miles from home, the festival was within walking distance of my apartment. I figured that I could go down there for the afternoon and take some pictures of some cars if nothing else. The entry went to a charitable organization, so it was a win-win - I got to see some cool cars, and Helping Hannah's Heart got a donation.
There were 2 stages set up with live entertainment. This was a pretty big event - the largest car show I've ever gone to. Let alone it was a vintage car show. The live entertainment was good! There are some pretty talented bands in this area. These are the Surf Zombies.
There were hundreds of cars at the show. I've taken pictures of cars before, and there are just a few angles you can take a photo of a car before it looks like the same photo - no matter the car. I tried to focus on some of the artwork on the cars, and also the rust.
I can't even believe how low this car is to the ground. I wouldn't want to drive this car. THe bumper would rip right off!
This is an HDR shot that I took of some rust. Rust tends to make really good HDR photos.
I thought this was pretty clever.
Expired Meat, Anyone?
I learned that these holes are called louvers. Didn't know that before. They had a machine at the festival that they were putting the louvers in for people.
The Dubuque County Fairgrounds have a dirt track on their property. Part of the festival took place on the track, so I thought I would take some photos. It was pretty fun and cool to see, mainly because I don't usually photograph things like this!
This buggy could go really fast. It was really fun to watch zipping around the track.
I personally would not have gone as fast as this driver did around the track. They were sliding all around. Looked fun though.
