    Parents have a house in Carmel next to the ocean so i'll be spending my Thursday - Sunday getting as many photos of the great cars and ocean sunsets as I can.

    A few places i'll have the opportunity to shoot:
    - Pebble Beach Concours D'Elegance
    - Quail Lodge
    - Concourse Italiano
    - Historic Races at Leguna Seca with Ferrari Tent Pass
    - Also some shows going on in Carmel and Pebble Beach.

    Hopefully I return with some goodies. I'll probably be updating in the evenings and POSSIBLY posting images, but i'll be tethering from my cell phone as the home does not have internet yet - so we'll see. I was there 2 years ago and it was such a blast. Anyone else going to be there for any of the events?:x:

    I want to see a pic of you standing in this very spot with this pose. Framing has to match. Clothes do not.

    I will honestly do my very best. Where is that spot exactly?

    I'm not joking.

    Monteray. There's a mall with some high end shops and eateries on the waterfront. I forget the exact spot but it's not hard to find. Think of it as a scavenger hunt. :bigthumb:

    Isn't that near the hotel, and that specific spot behind you to the left is the hotel's bar?

    I think you may be correct. I was there about 4 years ago so my memory is a bit fuzzy on the details.

    Carmel is awesome. You should eat at the Hogsbreath Inn. It's Clint Eastwood's restaurant. Was pretty good food.

    So here is what you are going todo.

    You are going here

    http://www.yelp.com/biz/katys-place-carmel

    You go there, you order the mother fucking buckwheat pancakes.

    I don't care if you like eggs hallendase (they have a huge menu for that), you will order the buckwheat pancakes and you will tell OT how they were the best mother fucking pancakes you have ever consumed. And you will post pics.

    Oh and no trip to carmel area is complete with out visiting Point Lobos State Reserve and seeing some mother fucking otters and playing with the ground squirrels. Follow the paths near the coast so you can see the cool as coves and shit. Yeah most defiantly son.

    I am always around too, I live about an hour north but fuck it let me know if you wanna meet up, or if you want to sprint up this way we can go into SF and visit the city by the bay.

    I'm really looking forward to going to Monterey plaza to get the jcolman shot.

    we should have picture scavenger hunts for multiple cities.

    have a list of places and poses to redo and match for different cities.

    I was actually studying the grin to perfect it. I really hope I can make it there. I know my dad has a bunch of stuff planned though.

    Seriously

    Goto that place I told you about for breakfast and get those buckwheat pancakes.

    They are the most amazing things you will ever stick in your mouth. :naughty:

    I will mention it fa shao! I know the area is going to be packed with tourists from all over, so we may eat at the house. I'll mention it. It's not like I can't go back at any time though really to try again if I don't make it this time.

    No god damn it, you get to down town, and you eat those fucking pancakes.

    Or so help me I will drive down to Carmel and turn this into some type of internet horror saga involving some creepy internet guy, a message board, some pictures and sick torture.

    That is all.
    ;)

    Yeah the race is going to fuck up that town, I would gtfo if you can, get to the parks and shit, they are epic. Aquarium is tight, new otter exibit is awesome and of course you till take pictures of the jellies because everyone does.

    Make sure to bring your camera and take as many pictures as you can so you don't actually enjoy the beautiful weather, scenery and food.

    I'm here. Lots of amazing cars and great sights as usual and so goddamn peaceful at night. It's kind of crazy not having to go to a hotel to sleep at night which is nice. Still trying to pinpoint where "monterey plaza" is exactly. My google maps did not find that.

    Katy's Place is just a few blocks east of our house. So i'll try and make my way there.

    Saturday should be awesome. We have turn 5 access with ferrari at laguna seca.

    We have tickets for the Quail Lodge Show and Auctions today, so that should be pretty spectacular.

    I did not make it out to re-do the jcolman.

    I took 1,174 photos. I am ALMOST done processing.

    A few samples.

    I have photos from Carmel-by-The-Sea, Monterey Historic Races, the Quail event (invite only), Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.
    I did not get a chance to make it to the aquarium, but another time. Met some really awesome people, and made some killer contacts.

    These were taken at a vineyard that has an exclusive Ferrari show going on. This was a re-body 1957 250 GT California.
