Up in the high plains of Nevada sits Reno, not far from the shores of beautiful Lake Taho.  On Independence Day weekend Reno hosts the All-American Barbecue Festival in conjunction with the Firecracker 500 off road race. The event has several homage bands, and iss held downtown on Virginia Street just outside the wonderful Silver Legacy hotel. Monster, makers of the energy drink showed up with a bunch of models in costumes that were rather skimpy, accompanied by motorcycle boots. In the heat of the afternoon the girls went out on the tarmac while two wild freestyle bikers on 600’s did wheelies and burnouts around them. I can tell you it did not do their beautiful hair any good. Although these girls are models who instinctively pose, I did manage to get a few shots in street candid style.

On Independence Day weekend Reno hosts the All-American Barbecue Festival and the Firecracker 500 off road race.  This set contains informal portraits, candids and performers.  The high plains of Northern Nevada are special with lots of sunshine, moderate afternoon high temperatures, cool evenings and low humidity.  It was beautiful in the afternoons when the sun slipped behind the Silver Legacy and Eldorado buildings.

All morning and right up through the end of the parade rain was hanging in the air.  A few drops fell, but the Art Car Parade was spared.  The Cadillac commercial vehicle is often parked on 19th street in the Houston Heights.  Volunteers use roller skates to get around because the car staging is spread out for over a mile.

These photos are from the 2015 Houston Art Car Parade with around 300 entrants in the show.  It’s as much or more about people and craziness as it is about the elaborately decorated cars.  This is the first set, I will publish more tomorrow.
