Event Coverage 

The Car Culture February 2018

This past Saturday morning, The Car Culture held their charity event once again at the West Avenue shopping center. With Houston’s recent rainy weather, I checked the forecast for the event which was clear, but I didn’t check directions that morning… which I should have.

I went about my normal route to the event but was greeted with terrible traffic on highway 290… yeah yeah, I know. This is Houston and 290 is always bad but usually, I don’t have any issues Saturday mornings but this time it was different. I ended up being in the parking lot of traffic turning my usual 45-minute trek to a 2-hour crawl. So instead of arriving right at the start of the event, I arrived much later.

When I finally made it to the shopping center, I grabbed my gear and made my way to do my coverage as usual, but this time probably a bit faster as I didn’t have much time to stay. The shopping strip was pretty fun of various rides and tons of people walking around. I usually head upstairs to snag some shots from above which this time I stayed on the ground level walking back and forth snagging as many photos before my time was up there. I did make time to chat with a few people here and made a new connection with photographer Anthony Scott which some of these photos are by him.

After a while, I had to head out but I was glad I was able to stop by for some time to check out the event. Every event, the collection¬†goes towards a different organization with this month’s collection benefiting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Make sure to check out both galleries to see the full coverage.
