Fairlane

Yesterday, while out running some errands after work, I happened to park near this gorgeous Fairlane. I am a total sucker for beautifully restored classics. I especially love when they are closer to stock than not. This one was pretty close to perfect, so I did not fault the owner for parking diagonally and taking up two parking spaces. I wish I had grabbed a few shots of the interior, but it didn’t occur to me until I was on my way out and then it was too late.

This photo was taken with Bracket Mode, HDR processing in Pro HDR, and some final tweaks were added in Snapseed.

Opening Day

Saturday, March 23, was Opening Day at Shoreline Yacht Club in Long Beach, CA. And this year was the Club’s 30th anniversary. I was too busy enjoying the party and forgot snap more images, but I grabbed this shot during the ceremony from the balcony. As seen on the boat closest and center in the photo, members will decorate their vessels with a string of flags for the celebration. The little added flare is a nice compliment for the the big day.

Members, as well as visitors from other yacht clubs, dress in their blue jackets and white pants. Hors d’oeuvres are passed around and drinks are flowing. With perfect weather and a beautiful view, it makes for a fun day.

This image was taken with the built in camera on my iPhone 5 in HDR mode and processed in Snapseed.
