Cash for Clunkers – Jim Koons Automotive – Virginia

For those of you who don’t know, I work full-time as the webmaster for Jim Koons Automotive. For the past couple months the government has been running the “Cash for Clunkers” program where dealers take old cars with poor gas mileage as a trade-in and customers get money from the government for their trade. As part of the program, the dealer agrees to destroy the clunker. Well, last week I got to see the clunkers get destroyed. Here are a few photos of the vehicles getting smashed!

And there it goes…

Smashed!

Some of the clunkers.

Not much was left behind.

Clarendon Day Electric Racing Kart Demo – Arlington, VA

This past Saturday was Clarendon Day in Arlington, which is a huge festival full of arts, crafts, music, food, and fun. Part of the festivities included an electric racing kart demonstration put on by the NoVA Kart Racing group and Volta Grand Prix. Below is a photo of David from the Kart groups driving his electric racing kart on a course marked by cones in the street. It was a fun day!

OBG Fundraiser at Cosi – Event Photography – Arlington, VA

This week I photographed a fundraiser event for the Oldies But Goodies Cocker Spaniel Rescue at the Cosi in Arlington. Most of the guests were foster parents for dogs. So, they brought their dogs along as well. There were raffle prizes to raise money for OBG and some fun games for the dogs. It was a great time!

Some yummy treats for our four-legged friends and fundraiser information.

Jon The Fitness Model – Stead Park, Washington DC

Jon is a fitness model from the Philadelphia area. He came down to the DC area for a fitness shoot with me. We did the shoot at Stead Park because the basketball court has a pretty amazing graffiti mural featuring the characters from the Wizard of Oz. Here’s some of my favorite shots from the day. Enjoy!

This kind of shape doesn’t happen overnight!
