Our Mega Gallery from Jacksonville Car Culture’s February Cars and Coffee at the Avenues Mall
With beautiful weather and an exuberant crowd of motorheads, the February Jacksonville Cars and Coffee was another stellar success. At this point, its really hard to get a solid number of how many cars showed up to the region’s largest monthly meet-up, but safe to say it couldn’t have been too far from 1,000 cars which made the petrol-pilgrimage to the Avenues Mall during the event. In fact, exotic row was so full this month that many of our supercar friends had to find parking spaces out among the crowd – providing some extra ground-hugging surprises down nearly every row. So too did two-wheeled enthusiasts turn out in droves, packing their dedicated area with some amazing bikes.
Our Epic Gallery from Jacksonville Car Culture’s January Cars and Coffee at the Avenues Mall
After a busy Christmas break traveling through Virginia and New Hampshire (photos coming soon) we arrived back in Jacksonville just in time for the Roar Before the Rolex 24 (photos also coming soon…) and this weekend’s Jacksonville Cars and Coffee – the very first Cars and Coffee of the new decade – and just possibly the largest turn out for the event yet! As we are want to do, we took photos – lots of them – and wanted to share a few of our favorites here with you. You can, of course, visit the full gallery as well.
Our Mega Gallery from Jacksonville Car Culture’s December Cars and Coffee at the Avenues Mall
Tis’ the season for Jacksonville Car Culture’s December Cars and Coffee! With Christmas just around the corner, this Cars and Coffee was extra-special, with a heaping helping of kid-sized toys collected to benefit Toys for Tots, complimenting the two, three and four-wheeled “big boy” toys that frequent Cars and Coffee the second weekend of each month. As we’ve come to expect from Jacksonville’s big-hearted automotive enthusiasts, folks showed up in droves to donate all manner of toys for this worthwhile cause.
A Spectacular “Fire in the Sky” Bookend Set of Dusk and Dawn Displays with a Side of Driftwood Astrophotography
Late last week, we had the pleasure of spending a night along Georgia’s beautiful Golden Isles before photographing the Days Inn Jekyll Island to help them highlight their newly remodeled rooms. The evening happened to coincide with the Alpha Monocerotids meteor shower which promised to deliver up to 400 shooting starts per hour as the earth briefly passed through the debris field of this ancient comet. Add to that an absolutely stunning sunset and sunrise, and the night’s session certainly warranted our “Fire in the Sky” moniker. Here’s just a sampling of the over 100 fine art images we captured – but please feel free to visit our full collection from Jekyll Island here.
The Weather Outside was Frightful, but the Rumble of Vintage Racers as they Roared Around Daytona at the Classic 24 was oh, so Delightful!
When one thinks of Florida, images of welcoming beaches and gently swaying palm trees, all under a warm tropical sun come to mind. Yeah, well, that wasn’t quite the picture at this year’s HSR Classic 24 at Daytona. Imagine, instead, if you will, one of those damp and dreary autumn New England days – the sort of weather that chills you right to the bone and causes you to wonder if the sun still exists – and that’s what we had pretty much all week down in Daytona. But despite the downright combative weather, this year’s Classic 24 was the best one yet, with a giant uptick in entrants, a busier than usual infield complete with campers and the addition of the eclectic and nostalgic VW bus Bulli Brigade. Add to that hours and hours of great vintage racing and more than your fair share of flame-spitting vintage racers, and its no wonder we all turned out despite the weather.
