I had never really been to a kustom kulture type event before so I decided to head along to Greazefest back in early August. The art, styles and fashions of the culture really add an interesting element to what would otherwise be just another car show. All of the cars would have been beautiful restored to their original condition but you get something a little extra at a show like this. Every car seems to have a history, a story, a personality.
It was a surprisingly warm and sunny day for August and the light was very harsh early in the afternoon. We decided to grab a drink and check out some of the ‘culture’ side of the show while we waited for the sun to go down.
There’s plenty to see, even if you aren’t into the cars, which makes it easy to drag your partner along… even if it was just for the ice-cream.
We had gotten a little sidetracked and the sun was quickly disappearing. I decided to get a little bit ‘indie’ and had some fun shooting into the sun.
I may have gone a little bit overboard but it was fun trying to do something different from the typical set of ‘car show’ photos.
The El Diablos Car Club had some of the coolest rods at the show.
The wonderful Miss Lulu Divine was posing with some nearby cars so I decided to get some sneaky & some not so sneaky pics.
With the sun almost gone I got some snaps of this beachy little beetle before we left.
They are some of my favourite from the day, the lighting is perfect!
