Hey there;

Hello friends;

Being a little busy and away from writing, today want to share some photos from a beautiful city over Cuba called Manzanillo, this city is located over the east zone and has a nice Caribbean Sea view. Never been there before we spend a good day over together with my brother and sister in law. The city is very attractive, has to say it, for being a “inside” city is pretty good, for example in the city’s central park, this Glorieta is a mix of Arabic architecture with Spanish, is a very old city, around 140 year (check more information about the city over Wikipedia in this Link).

Well, this stop was after hours of driving from Santiago de Cuba, had been talking with my brother days before to stop for photos, meet the city and his church, we arrive around 11 AM, very good in time for lunch, then after a few hours of talking and talking, we hit the road, camera in hand, digital film and a big will for good photos.

Happy Sunday friends!

What a day yesterday (Sat Jan 28, 2012)… after a painful one hour drive to Kissimmee FL, finally got to see the Mecum Auction in action!!!…

Covering this event was a real blessing, never saw before that many cars in my entire life, my Favorite 1967 GTO!, that’s a car!, I don’t know if I have to say more, but if you missed it, try to go next year is a very good experience.

Got my Media Pass through friend Drew (@Motozombie1), we were helping Motorama Guys (@BerryLowman) to cover the Auction, together with Mike form AtomicMotoX (@AtomicMotoX). After a few hours another group of friend join us and had a walk to the tents, hundred of cars, for sale, including boats, everything was in perfect harmony till the end of Sunday, when the auction move to another place.

The light inside was a little bit tricky, compensated white balance for tungsten, then shutting A, sometimes M, ISO at 800 trying to keep my shutter speed around 1/125s, aperture at f/4. After all this, of course I had to work the WB adjustments, the light was OK, but I think they setup that way for the TV cameras, either or I came back home with a nice repertoire, personalities including the Master Mind Dana Mecum and from Chasing Classic Cars Wayne Carini, photos in the gallery below.
