Detroit photo shoot with my Camaro

It had been discussed on Camaro5 about the lack of Camaro photos in downtown Detroit. I have been wanting to change that and today (1-6-2012) was a good day to do that. I had been posting that I was going to stop downtown and take some photos before the Detroit Gen 5 Club meeting. Sam asked if she could join me for this rare opportunity. Of course she can. We had a BLAST taking these today. ENJOY. Note: Just so happens our two Camaro's are the colors of our beloved TIGERS.

Very cool! Nice shots!

Now all you need is some very larger reflectors or big flash to lighten up some of the harsh shadows.... LOL

Good location choices for the pics. Didn't know there was a Detroit Gen5 club. I'll have to look into it and perhaps bring mine for the next meeting? Thanks for sharing!

Great photos. It would've been funny if one of those persons from "Parking Wars" would've given you a ticket.

Great pics! Too bad I just found the Detroit club and another bummer, my Dad retired from the Tigers, a few years ago. If the timing had worked out, I could have had your car inside, on the field. I used to drive my Astro van all over Tiger stadium, including the field, on the off season after I got my drivers license. (granted that was over 16 years ago) I got some pics I'll try to upload. Wouldn't have been a problem, seeing that everytime I visited Coamerica park in the off season, it was a ghost town. Even turning the ball park lights on probably would've been a go too. oh well, wishful think now.

Thank - you, glad you found the club now to check us out. That would have been cool maybe someday we will have a connection to allow the eniter club down on the field for a photo shoot, now that would be COOL.

Thank - you Alfie. I tried. It was a good time going around doing this. Something I thought of when someone else complained because they didn't see anything like it yet.
