Swimming Pool

Given how hard it is to play with light, I am extremely impressed at how good this looks:

These were from Leandro Erlich’s installation called “Swimming Pool” at MOMA in New York.  Too bad it closed in April of 2010, but maybe it will pop up somewhere else. I’d love to see this!



Kuwait Events: Concours d'Elegance

UPDATE:  I took so many millions of photos, it’s been hard to sort out a few– it’s difficult to say which details should be left out of these beautiful cars! The show was nothing short of fantastic, with millions of dollars worth of some of the most beautiful cars in the world. Enjoy my album!

It seems the season of automotive events in Kuwait, as we got to see the Gulf Run cars a few weeks ago, and in the next few days will have a motorcycle show and a concours event!

Really, an international Concours d’Elegance event is of entirely a different league than our regional events. This is our opportunity to see some of the finest cars in the world. In Kuwait. One really gets a feel for how special they will be when looking at the “modern” category out of the different ones to be judged:

Category A: Vintage Cars : includes cars made from 1910 to 1930
Category B: Classic Cars : includes cars made from 1931 to 1945
Category C: Classic Postwar Cars : includes cars made from 1946 to 1960
Category D: Modern Classic Cars : includes cars made from 1961 to 1975

In addition to the Concours cars themselves, there will be some other automotive events as well, including these themed collections:

Hollywood Cars
Historical Photos Gallery
Presidential Cars Display
merican Muscle Cars
Daily Activities

Further, each day will feature it’s own theme, including Italian cars on Feb. 3rd, and the Kuwait Riders’ motorcycle show on Feb. 4th!

For more details, see the CdE website or their Facebook page.
