It’s that time of year when the cars bloom … no, wait, that’s not quite right. This past weekend was the 18th Woodward Dream Cruise, that weekend when people get in their classic cars and drive around giving presents and food baskets to the needy … no wait, that’s still not quite right. Anyway, Dave came up and we wandered all over Royal Oak and Berkley, photographing mostly fifty-year-old automobiles. That’s me in the upper left corner of the photo above. Dave’s shadow is in the lower-left. We’re triangulating a ’61 Cadillac and capturing it for photographic posterity.
Traffic was pretty heavy. The crowds were the largest we’d ever seen. We heard an estimate that there were 1.3 million people along Woodward Avenue and the nearby event sites. The weather was unbelievably nice, which was probably a big part of why the crowd was huge.
There are a couple more photos on my Flickr page. I’ll probably add a few more this week.
