After coming back from Norway, I realized that I need to get out more in the Washington D.C. region to do some photography day trips to satiate my need to be creative and continue improving my photo workflow. Of course, it would be easiest, at least in the beginning and rather than going out on my own, to find a conduit that would give me easy access to photography events that are already organized and that would put me in a position to meet other like minded folks. I've found a couple of groups, mostly off of the Meetup.com site, with whom I've decided to engage. My first outing was this Saturday morning.
We met up in Columbia, Virginia - between Richmond and Charlottesville - at a "truck graveyard." The owner of the land collects vintage trucks and farm vehicles, that I am assuming are beyond repair upon acquisition, and allows people to come and photograph for a small per person fee. The trucks look as old as the 1930s, and range up to maybe the 1980s but that's maybe just one firetruck. There are tow trucks, heavy duty trucks, tractors, police trucks, firetrucks, etc.
