Today we resume where I left off before to finish up my shots from the Wekfest parking lot! We return to the sun-soaked pavement surrounding Long Beach’s Queen Mary to take a peek at the show outside the show.
I thought I had properly prepared myself to attend Wekfest this year, but as soon as I got out of my car and saw the line I knew I had a LOT of time before I was getting in. General admission was not until 1:30PM and the line was already hundreds, if not a couple thousand people long. While it’s awesome for the guys putting on the show that attendance is higher than ever, but for someone trying to get in and take pictures…it’s a different story. So rather than slowly sear myself on the asphalt, I decided to take a stroll around the parking lot to check out some of what the Wekfest audience was rolling around in. Keep in mind many of these cars may have been in the parking lot because they chose not to show, either because they are a work in progress or because they simply aren’t interested in building a “show car” and the main reason I go out to shoot parking lots is to see what trends carry over and what are presumably daily drivers.
