I am totally behind in putting up posts, yet again, and now they're going to go up out of order, but I am too excited about these pics to wait to post them later. I'm impatient like that. Besides, I don't have to look up plants or mushrooms to identify them, like I need to do with a couple of my nature posts that are waiting in the wings.
This past weekend was the Jordan Fall Festival, which is a little local annual event my tiny Village is very proud of. On the Sunday of the festival each year they have a car show, and this year there were more than 400 cars in it. I grabbed my camera and my husband and I did a quick tour of it. I really didn't have time to linger, since I had so many other activities crammed into my weekend. I hadn't really expected to get photos I would do anything with, but as per my usual, once I started taking photos I got lost in the moment and wound up with a whole bunch of shots.
Thank goodness for the invention of digital photography - if I had to pay to develop all my photos I would be woefully broke.
I found it hard to resist capturing a little of the character of the show. There's no doubt that a lot of car enthusiasts have a sense of humor. I snapped a couple of pictures just because the signs made me laugh:
So, without further ado, my little car show vignette:
My favorite car in the show - a 1960 MG, British racing green with a tan leather interior. I am such a sucker for cars with that color combination. My favorite classic car of all time is a 1950 Jaguar XK 120, in those colors. Yuuummmy. But this little beauty was lovely, too.
