Souped Up Chevy by Kim McClain Gregal

Captured this Chevy Chevelle exiting the boardwalk at the Wildwood New Jersey, USA car show 25-Sept-2010 with a Nikon D90 DSLR, Sigma 17-70 mm lens, 70 mm, f/8, 1/125 sec, ISO 400, 1 shot, Raw, handheld, Photomatix, and Corel Paintshop Pro 3.

Inspired by and dedicated to two of my Redbubble friends:
stephaniek Stephanie was one of my first friends on Redbubble, has many great car shots, and is a wonderful person.

Chris Donner Chris also has some fabulous car shots and has a great view on life that she shares with the world.

People line up at the street ramps exiting the boardwalk to watch the cars exit. Irish weekend is also celebrated in Wildwood on this weekend, so there is always a crowd (many have imbibed). The crowd always encourages the drivers to burn rubber and share their wonderful revved up engine sounds. Discouraged by the police to not succomb to the temptation of peeling out, a few dared and made the crowd roar! This shot was captured before the police showed at our street exit. I am happy that my focus was on the moving car and enjoyed the show and finale!

I love to photograph anything seaside and colorful! I am exploring many artforms and love the work of many here on Redbubble! I call all my dabblings “Kim’s Kaboodle”. I am also making mosaics from glass tiles and other media, drawing and painting. My art can also be found at link
