All British Display Day 28/08/2011

So on Sunday I went out to the All British Display day which was held at The King’s School in Parramatta.  The school is absolutely amazing and easily swallowed what must have been 500 or so cars parked over its playing fields.  This is just the Jaguar section of the display…


Taking photos at these kinds of days are always tricky – there’s always 28382 people in your way unless you slap on the wide angle which distorts shapes and can make things look really out of proportion.  Of course, that can also be used to your advantage

Every British Marque you’d have ever heard of and many you wouldn’t were on display, ranging from the very old…

the very new, including this Lotus Evora which I hadn’t seen In Australia before.

It’s funny that, as in everything else, trends that are apparently fresh and ground-breaking have all been done before.  This 1960’s mini shows off it’s mexican stance…

One of my favourite cars of the display was this awesome looking Jaguar XJS.

Loved the bling wheels on it…

There was also this extremely rare Australian built Leyland Force 7 which was a 2 door version of the P76.  Rare, sure, but not really to my taste.  It was parked next to a nice Rover P6; my Grandfather has one similar…

Car shows do offer you a good opportunity to go crazy with the detail shot; so I did…

Whilst you might not think its necessary on a bright sunny day, using a flash will really help you control the contrast in between the bright sun-lit panels and the shadowed panels.  Most of the pictures I’ve posted benefited from the use of a flash and these photos of an immaculate Triumph TR5 and two TR6s exemplify the technique.

Finally, I’ll finish this post with this photo of a line-up of Aston Martins.

Aston Martins Image has been soured for me ever since I heard this lol-worthy song by  Rick Ross
