Classic Car Convoy

Last Sunday a bunch of Classic Car enthusiast gathered to drive up to Telaga Air (about 35 km away from Kuching City). Everyone gathered at RH Plaza before 7am.

It was pretty cloudy when I arrived. There were many VW Beetles and Mini's. Only 1 Toyota Celica when I arrived. I quickly ate kolomee. And started to shoot a few photos. Thinking I would do a nicer cover once I get to Telaga Air.

Boy was I wrong because once we started our journey it started to rain. And it did not stop until late afternoon.

Mini Moke

Anyways regret didnt shoot more photos you can find the rest of the photos in my facebook album. 48 images. We spent about an hour there, chit chatting. Was hoping for the rain to stop. But it did not. So we all drove around a bit to Matang, then I left. It was very wet.

Below is a video I spliced together, captured using my very abused Sony DSC-T90 digital camera. Too bad it was raining, else I could have gotten more footage. Enjoy, oh do watch in HD. I went out in the rain to catch the footage.

Hopefully more convoys to come this year!

Classic Mini Austin

I was suppose to shoot some dragons in the morning but it turned out that everyone was busy. So tried to arrange another shot with another dragon and a fairlady in the afternoon. That didn’t work either the fairlady was sick and the dragon was not interested.

So ended up calling up my mechanic, Nick. He was interested so I called up Foosi and we picked a location and that was that.

Below images were shot using my Nikon D300, 17-55, 50, 80-200 and SB800, SB600 (Foosi’s)

This was one of my fav shots

Classic look

Mocha look

Trying to be artistic ? failed.

Another try~

vertical look~ trying to catch the skies~

This is one of those iconic angles. love the reflections on top of the car. maybe should have tried to mute the side lights more as it seems pretty flat and there is no reflections. Well every outing is a learning one.
