Hot Rods in the heat

As everybody knows who stops by at this blog regularly, I focus on wildlife and landscape photography.  But sometimes I like to do something totally different. Last weekend I brought some good friends from Germany back to Chicago. Despite the awful heat here in the Midwest we stopped in Galena, Illinois for some sightseeing. I didn't know that Galena had their 34th Annual Pre-49er Car Show and Rod Run this weekend. The cars were parked along the Galena River. Many had a lot of distracting "junk", like coolers, lawn chairs, and all kinds of signs around, but a few were in a nice setting with just the beautiful city in the background. I hope you enjoy!
