Hot Rod Power Tour Day 7 - The Finish Line

Trying something different
It's the last day of the Hot Rod Power Tour and Peg did the driving early on so I could play at taking some more photos on the road. With a wide angle lens I was able to shoot the cars right next to us in the other lane. The hard part was setting the shutter speed just fast enough to keep the car clear while blurring the wheels and background. I found that anything more than 125th of a second made the cars look like they were parked. Once in Mobile, AL we again bailed after a short time and went off to play. Right across from our hotel was the Gulf Coast Exploreum Science Center and we had the place almost to ourselves. We played with most of the hands on exhibits and had a blast. Back at the Renaissance Hotel, our 9th Floor water view had plenty of things to watch. We spent a couple hours just watching boats, trains, and of hot rods go by.  Down at the hotel market I found some odd chips that I just had to try. They were actually pretty good. I'll eat anything at least once.
