I knew it was going to be a big crowd as I lined up to get my parking and finally it struck me even more as I got into the convention center. People were all over the place. This was a very big crowd. Is there even a recession? Didn’t feel like it as the crowds touched, sat and just ogled the vehicles on the show floor.
What did I do? I just started taking pictures. Most of the pictures I took were of the modified cars at the Shiftr area. I figured I’d take pictures here first and then move on to the bikini contest stage on the other side of the hall. Then I was planning on taking pics of the show cars later in the day. Good plan.
I hope next time, we’re told about the real schedule.
Overall, the bikini contest was fun, took a whole lot of pictures. Once it was all over, I went to the show floor and tried to take some car pics but figured that there was just too many people walking around and getting into the cars or just looking over cars. So yea, I didn’t take the pictures – I don’t normally like taking pics of cars with people in them.
Some day, I have to go to the media day because man, I really do need that time to get those car pictures without all the people around a car. Someday!
I admit I got to enthusiastic about taking a whole lot of pictures of the bikini contest, but it was hella fun! I could give a lame excuse like the crowd was so thick that I couldn’t get out, so I was being forced to take pictures, right?
Like I’ve said in the past, I really do like the OC Auto Show better than the LA Auto Show. It just has more activities for the entire family from the bikini contest, MMA fighting, driving experiences, hell, it just feels more inviting. The LA Auto Show has the glamor but sometimes it feels really cold – like a business.
