As previously mentioned, we live in Fairfax City proper, having rented a townhouse back in March. Fairfax is an interesting little city with a lot of history, and being a college town, with a lot of things going on.
Traditionally on Labor Day, University Drive is blocked off from Main Street to Armstrong and a car show hosted. Like many things during the pandemic, the show was cancelled in 2020, but caution was thrown to the wind for 2021 and the show was held.
Grabbing the Fuji X-T2, I headed out to see what I could see. Walking down University, I was absolutely amazed by the sea of shining custom cars as far as the eye could see. Amazing. Being somewhat (?) of a gearhead, this was nirvana to me.
I started at the entrance on University, wound my way up the West side of the street, got to the end and meandered back down. It was fairly early so the crowds weren’t too bad, but it was definitely getting more crowded by the time I left.
So, no further yapping, on to the cars!
Edit 02-19-22: After quite a bit of verbal arm wrestling on the WordPress forums, I was informed that the ability to sort images in a gallery by number was removed when they “upgraded” to the new block editor. Yay! That’s improvement… NOT.
Anyway, using the code editor, I copied the HTML making up the code, and then managed to sort it as I wanted in Excel, and paste it back in. Elegant, no, functional, yes. The ONLY good part of this is the HTML is well behaved, so I “should” be able to whip up a python do-hicky (that’s a technical term) to resolve the issue.
So, in chronological order, the Fairfax Labor Day Car Show:
Sorry for the large number of photos. They were all so gorgeous I couldn’t bring myself to omit a single one.
Next time, we have an amazing old grist mill I came across in my travels in North Carolina.
