Told you guys a few days ago about the route 66 international festival being hosted by Joplin. I was asked to take part by being the professional photographer present at the event to get shots of folks with Mater & Lightning McQueen, brought down directly from Pixar for this week only.
Last night was the drive in: a totally sold out showing of ‘Cars’ with a two hour period set aside for pictures and more. And during that 2 hours… the line NEVER stopped. Not that I’m complaining. 🙂 It was intense, but we had a blast.
[NOTE: if you’re from the Joplin area, and missed the drive in but still would like pictures of your family with Mater & McQueen, the cars will be in downtown Joplin (5th & main) all day saturday; 9art will be there from 5 to 7:30 to take your professional pictures. Check back on our last post for more info!]
Here are the cars themselves: life sized, and get this, remote controlled! You can see the controller in his hand, just barely:
And here’s a few shots from the night. Enjoy!
look closely at the dresses…
it’s not ONLY kids who get excited about Pixar movies…
And here’s Michelle & I… WE ARE 9ART! Photo by Whitney Scott of Whitney Scott photography… I could decide whose logo to put on this, since she took the picture, but with my camera… ah well, we went with her logo. 😉
PS, Whitney & David, when you guys read this, thanks for lending out your light/battery when my backup battery failed me miserably. Helps to be friends with the competition, you know it?
