Classic Cars in Huntington Beach

Each Wednesday evening, this summer, we have been treated to classic cars cruisin’ down Main Street, in Huntington Beach, California. Tonight, I wait for them as they lined up near Lake and Farquhar Parks.

I don’t pretend to be a videographer, but I wastes to test the capability of the Olympus OMD-EM5. I attached a 9mm Bodycap Lens, which is fixed at an aperture of f8, and waited. It was about 7:50PM, when they got in line for their cruise downtown.

Huntington Beach Independence Day Parade

Huntington Beach has held an Independence Day Parade since 1904. I’ve only been going about 12 years. Today, I almost didn’t go — the parade was on TV, so I though I’d avoid the sun and the crowds, and watch it from home — but, the parade passes only two blocks from home, and it is the sun and crowds that I enjoy, the most.

Granted, this year’s photos don’t look much different from any other year’s images, but it is the feeling of so many people celebrating some of the things that matter most to all of us, as a nation, that gives the 4th of July it’s special feeling, to me.

Now, I am going to do something that I have never done before: I am going to publish ALL the photos, from today, just as they came out of the camera. I haven’t deleted any of them — so if a few are out of focus, you will see them.

Tech Note: For those who care, I used an Olympus OMD-EM5 with a M. Zuiko 12-40mm, f2.8 Pro lens. It was set on aperture priority at f8.0, with ISO on auto, but almost always selecting 200.
