Tiny Car Museum

Lights off... Lights ON!

I added LED light strings to my Hot Wheels cases. And then I took photos of all my tiny cars.

Beware – insanity lurks inside.


Freezing Fog

The cold never bothered... nah, it always bothers me.

NM got some freezing fog. I had to snap a half dozen pix and some bonus Bucky portraits.

2011 Rough Riders Motorbike Rally

I dare you to be manly around this face.

And that’s when the idea hit me. Art. It deserves to hang on the wall.

Drive-in movies still exist. I have proof! Photos!!! If you can call digital pix “proof” of anything that is…. anyway, check out my small report on taking a Mazda3 to a drive-in.


2009 New Mexico International Auto Show

The big, Motor Trend sponsored auto show came though town recently. My camera and a few buddies from work went with me for the opening on Friday afternoon. Though MANY manufacturers were missing, it was a good time. The event was lightly attended, yet the cars I wanted to shoot were very popular. I didn’t […]
