Classic Car Show

In November 2021, I attended a classic car show in Rosemont, IL and took almost 200 pictures (I finally got around to organizing them last weekend).

I’d been wanting to use my camera (the photography classes I’d signed up for were canceled months ago due to the pandemic), so I thought I’d take a road trip and take some pictures.
