My camera also traveled to the St. Petersburg du Pont Registry Cars& Coffee a number of times where I was able to bring you photos of some amazing and rare cars. (See the RWB Porsche and video link below for the latest Cars & Coffee highlight) On occasion I also grabbed a photo or two of something different, including the International Motor Racing Research Center in Watkins Glen, NY.
The year was capped off in December with photos taken at Pistons & Props- historic vehicles racing at Sebring alongside the Sebring Airport.
So you can see I was on the road a lot and I logged many miles on my car and on my feet getting around all the places needed to bring you something meaningful. I hope my work is appealing to you and that you come to the website often in 2017 to see what I have captured! I view my work as going on a hunt for a wild animal- you never know if you will see what you are seeking, but when you do and you pull the trigger on the camera and capture the moment the way you expected it to look, you have achieved success for that day. And then you do it all over again the next day or the next event, hoping that over a year, you have a collection of achievements that represent a solid body of work.
There was sadness this year as well with the passing of Brock Yates. His writing was some of the best and most interesting in the business. I remember in the late '80's when he wrote a column for Car and Driver how I would eagerly flip to his column first as soon as I pulled the magazine from the mailbox. He's the only author that got my attention in that way.
So here's a pictorial review of the year as I saw it, including photos of many of this year's champions. Don't forget to check out the excellent video on the mint green Porsche by RWB at December's du Pont Registry Cars & Coffee below.
