Photography offers me the opportunity to appreciate things that I wouldn’t necessarily expect to take an interest in if I wasn’t i interested in photography. Take cars for instance, not your everyday cars snd trucks but the old, classic ones. I was never interested in cars growing up but I did appreciate my dads fire red mustang he purchased!
My interest in old and restored cars has grown over the years.
I enjoy photographing old classic cars. I have been to several car shows and many of these shows occur during the 4th of July weekend which adds a bit of patriotism to the events. Classic cars are a symbol of freedom and an emblem of America’s pioneering spirit. Classic cars not only appeal to car lovers, but also to lovers of engineering, design, art and history.

Americans definitely have a love affair with their classic cars!
The shows that I find along main street America offer a more appealing setting to me then the shows that are located in fields. When I see a classic car in the parking lot or along the side of the road, I always stop and take some pics.
Muscle car owners also tend to be passionate about their cars and take great pride in them by adding their personal touches to reflect their personalties.
Culpeper, VA is a small, patriotic town near Fredericksburg,VA that has a wonderful car show on the fourth of July.
