Hot Rods & Harley-Davidsons in Rahway, New Jersey

and many other sponsors put together one of the coolest shows I’ve been to. A lot of cars and even more motorcycles. People were out in droves even though it was overcast and drizzling. It made for better photos anyway because it gave everything a soft lighting effect. Seeing downtown Rahway blocked off for this event was impressive. More places need to have events like this to bring communities together for something special. No outdoor event is complete without Romeo’s Oriental BBQ and I consumed no less than three bbq kabobs.

is yet another place in New Jersey that I had never been to until this session came along. Boogs and I arrived a bit early to explore the grounds and it’s much more than just a big field. The Clark House is there and it’s an excellent backdrop for portraits and landscapes. Another beautiful spring day filled with funny moments and photos to last a lifetime.

My usual move since I am the designated driver for these trips is to try a few sips of wine and then I go take my photographs. There was an art festival that day so I knew I’d get some great photos of artists hard at work throughout the vineyard.

To my surprise their was a beekeeping area of the vineyard with swarms of bees producing honey. I got as close as I could without getting stung. A few bees landed on me, but they didn’t care to sting me. Thanks, bees! All photos in this series were shot on a Mamiya 645 Pro loaded with black & white Kodak film.
