Hey everyone. I will be out shooting pictures on Saturday and possibly Sunday. I am sending out an offer to shoot other fanatics cars on these days. (weather permitting)

The location is in Sterling, (unless someone comes up with a better area that I am willing to drive to) just 1 minute from the Best Buy.

Some older pictures from the area...

Requirements? Nothing really, except I prefer to keep this to a Euro only "shoot". Also, I will need you to notify me before just showing up and assuming I will be able to/have time to take pictures. I am not required money for these pics or anything, but rather, asking for "donations" for my time. I won't be turning anyone away if one doesn't "donate". However, if someone would like to get prints done, a CD made or more, I will charge for such services. Please PM me with what you would like before this weekend. If you would like to get pictures printed, or a CD, I would like to know before I begin taking the pictures. Basically I will do my best to get the people that notify before hand some hi-res pictures of their car. Those that would like some "products" I will take more pictures and post-process them to make sure they can turn out the best that I can have them come out.

Date: Saturday, July 1st and (maybe) July 2nd. (Weather permitting)
Place: Just South of Best Buy in Sterling, VA.
Time: 9am (This is when I will be arriving, again, depending on weather) PM me if you want my cell phone number.

It isn't on the map as the development is too new. Hope to see you there! Please, again, notify me before coming out by adding your name to the list or shooting me a PM. Thanks!

Sure, you all can of course come. I am there just to have some fun and enjoy the hopefully at least not raining day. I posted this up on E46 as well as ECE (a local euro forum I run). I was thinking we could all make a run to Chipotle for a late lunch as well. If not, I will be at least. :)

If I don't go to Dewey beach I'll stop by for this with my spiffy stock E46 seeing this is about 5 minutes from my house.

Guess I'll have to wash her first eh?

Ah nevermind.. just drove over a nice screw on the way to lunch and my right rear BRAND NEW Pilot Sport tire is unfixable.. sooo unless by some sheer miracle they get it done by Friday, I won't be there unless I'm on my bike... :lol:

PS: Those tires a freaking expensive. That is all.

Which is why i bought the tire warrenty!

Nice doode!

Yes.. this is one time I'm the chump for not springing for the tire/wheel warranty.

Guess I'm used to my 33"x12.5" rubber on my Jeep that used to eat nails for breakfast and still run strong... :)

That's fine. I just wanted an idea of how many people might be coming out. Again, if you don't see me or other cars there, we may be at the Chipotle in Sterling. It is located in the shopping center two lights East of Rt 28(on rt 7), on the left. Where the movie theatres are located. This is will I will be eating lunch around 11ish or earlier if not many people show. (I think it opens at 11 anyways).

You still want us there at 9am right?

Fri, Jun-30-2006, 02:27:52 AM
Alex, you don't have to arrive at 9am. That is just when I will be showing up. About 9-915 or so. If I am feeling the lighting and such, I can take up to an hour on my own car, haha. If not, it doesn't take me too long to get bored with my car. :wave:

My bad Kevin. D'oh! Thanks for showing up bro. And everyone else that came out and chilled. It was nice to put some new faces to the username; Alex w/ fiance in hand, and Jack. Two very chill fanatics.
Here are some teaser pics of the BEST part of the day!

Here is my ZOOOM ZOOOM teaser before I start working on my pictures....
