What you've been waiting for - My photos! 56k...may god have mercy on your soul.

These are some of the pics I took from the Cinco De Mayo gathering in Santa Barbara California.

If you like my spyshots, events photos and other photo posts in general please help me take more for you!

Everything and anything helps this college student!

I would have swapped lenses but I was on a tight schedule and I had a lot of ground to cover, and quite frankly the thought of taking pics of 600+ BMW's with anything but a fisheye was a little too much.
Anyway, Enjoi!













yes, only a hot girl could get away with this monstrosity and since I didn't take a picture of her, this will not stand, ya know, this aggression will not stand, man.

Was about to ask the same question. They came out super clear! I wouldnt have done fully fish eye shots myself but hey, thats just me. Great work nonetheless.
P.s. What camera were you using?

Thanks, Pentax k100d. Yeah, I didn't want to shoot with just the fisheye, but I lacked the motivation to switch lenses...that and I wanted to cover more ground. If there were only a few cars there I would have. I was only there for 2 hours anyway.
