Well I woke up early yesterday and as I was making my breakfast I decided to set up my camera on my HUGE balcony and shoot sunrise timelapse. While doing that I remembered that I had set up crappy webcam on inside my window frame. In here, Finland we usually have three layer windows to keep the warm air inside the house and cold outside, so there is plenty of room and it ain’t that cold for the webcam. So, I started OBS and started streaming live feed of said timelapse shooting. Which is basically static image of camera and blown out sky moving from east to west.
Now I woke up early to catch a sunrise timelapse again and I thought what the heck and started streaming again:
I was travelling to Rauma yesterday to pick up some parts for my El Camino and as I was driving on the highway that passes by old and legendary gas station on Lahnajärvi, which is resurrected from dead and there was AHS’s (AutoHistoriallinenseura / Automobile Historic Society) 10th Winter Drive, which is kind of car orienteering. So I stopped by and took few photos: https://tdp.kuvat.fi/kuvat/Tapahtumat/Muut+tapahtumat/2017/AHS+Talviajot/
Well it is that time of the year that show season starts the year and gather fellow car and bike enthusiastics from the cold and dark garages. I had a booth once again at the show and it was just a base for my gear. Had a brand new lens to try out and so far it has proven to be worth the money. It is Tamron SP 90 mm f/2.8 Di Macro VC USD. Paired with Nissin ring flash.
I had an opportunity to go to Räyskälä Vintage Drags in a team bus as one friend from the garage where my El Camino is, was going to Räyskälä Vintage Drags to drag race his 1967 Chevrolet Camaro. He has had that since late 1970s and when drag racing landed on Finland, Räyskälä Airfield was one of the first place where you could drag race. We borrowed Hollow Head Drag team’s team bus where we loaded the Camaro and had a sleeping quarters for five people.
Sun set at Räyskälä Airfield.
First we went to Somero to pick up slick tires and then on to Räyskälä Airfield. We arrived just as the sun was settling in for the night. We took the Camaro out and barbeque grill and set up our camp for the Saturday. We then proceed to have late night dinner and the older guys who had been there back in the days showed us the youngsters the site.

After sun had risen it was time to get some sleep and prepare for the drag racing. After few hours of sleep we started the day. As people was arriving to the airfield I set up the balcony on the top of the bus. From there I got to shoot live video on my youtube channel and got to shoot cars and happening at the airfield.
Cars started to show up at Räyskälä Airfield.
Day was hot and dry half way through and around 14:00 o’clock it started to raining and most people started their cars and started to drove off the airfield. We waited for awhile but as airfield started to get quiet we also packed our team bus and headed for Mustiala Estate for the night and have a party with Do-Dads Reunion party.

On Sunday I took a little stroll around Mustiala estate and shoot some of the cars that were there for the Kustom Life Outdoor Show. But we had to leave before the show started so I didn’t get to shoot that many cars.
It’s that time of the year again that we have the biggest show in our country: American Car Show. As usual I am there to shoot what I see and today was the build day. I have to say that looking back at previous years this year there are quite few new faces… I mean cars! Few even from the Germany!
I’ll be posting a lot of picture in my social media too so you can follow me on:
