bimmerfest 2007 - the touring edition report!

just be forewarned - it's a narrower coverage of the event, from the perspective of some e39 wagon lovers!

thanks.

Thanks for showing your pictures. Did you know that photobucket allows me to see all your sub albums listed below? Maybe you don't really want to share and kept private. For that reason I don't use Photobucket. If I show a video, anyone watching it can delete it and other photos in my photobucket account

Appreciate the "heads-up" on that, although not much private in any of those albums, except the naked old men romping in the meadows J/K. But it is something to seriously think about. I guess I will have to lock them up now..and just post the pics individually.

You can create a link to a sub album in photobucket to include only those pictures you want to show, but still the person viewing them can delete them from your sub album permanently. I'm wondering why photobucket hasn't figured that flaw out yet. I haven't found a way around that problem yet. The other way is just post the pictures here.

here's part 2...

here's the bimmerfest report, part 2...

remember how i mentioned i missed out on atomic80's photoshoot? on the way down, i saw that little bridge that sticks out - right by the cliff house/shoal's restaurant. i've always wondered what it was...i parked right where the boxed area was. the little bridge is of course locked - not oopen to the public. i asked one of the locals - they said the bridge is actually an oil pipeline...here's the aerial google map...


so i couldn't resist - i HAD to do a mini photo session!!! no atomic80, but i had fun...hope you guys like them. as you'll see, some are obviously playfully adjusted with the software that came with my little canon.

needless to say, the view was spectacular. the lighting was a little challenging - very bright, too bright, afternoon sun. i had to make do....







































thank you!
