Chicago Auto Show {aka cars way cooler than mine}

detail shows of cars from 2012 Chicago Auto ShowI’ve never really been that much of a car girl. The four cars I’ve owned during my life have pretty much sucked. As long as it’s not on fire (it’s happened), no wheels have fallen off (also happened), it’s not dead in the middle of a busy intersection (ditto), and there’s no hamster stuck behind the dashboard (don’t ask) I pretty much view a car as something to get between point A and point B, hopefully not sucking up too much gas in the process.

So when the BF wanted to go to the Auto Show the other day….meh. Not that excited. Truthfully, in my head it’s all tangled up with this logo project I did in school where the teacher had us create an event logo and devise this whole campaign around it. I get the same feeling about a local ice sculpture festival…all I can think about is the first website I ever built in school, and what a nightmarish time that was. But I digress.

Turned out the Auto Show is pretty cool. It was a nice occasion to play with the new camera lens a bit, and the kids had an awesome time meeting the Blackhawks mascot, so that alone made it worth it. Some of my favorite pics from the day are below. I wasn’t able to get many shots with the entire cars in the frame, because it was very crowded and as soon as I got out the camera some person would, without fail, wander directly in front of me. So I ended up with lots of detail shots, but those are the coolest parts of the car anyway.
