We live at Pillar Ridge, right next to Half Moon Bay Airport, making it very convenient for us to walk to the famed Dream Machines. My experiences are through the viewfinder of my Canon 5D. I can’t imagine how many hours the machine exhibitors, lovingly polish and baby their motor creations. I have to say — I’ve always had a love for fast cars, particularly drag racers dating back to the 60s. As many of you know I also have a passion for really fast race-style motorcycles. I’m strictly a spectator — we do not volunteer or promote this Coastside event.
Most people these days have pretty nice digital cameras and they shoot cool photos, so to be a little different, I’m looking for details and images that capture odd angles. Airplanes … the airplanes are out of this world. I like to attempt to capture their sleek functional lines. The engineering of an airplane has to be perfect. I believe an airplane is a “perfect” machine. It’s designed with as close to “0″ drag as possible … and it “flies” which is amazing.
