Double time at the Detroit Auto Show!

Just got back from Detroit this evening after roaming the floor of the North American International Auto Show for two exhausting days.

For the first time ever, I was able to shoot the booths of every car company on the main floor. Can’t tell you the number of times I had to
hold my 6 lb. camera extended steady at chest level or overhead for 30 seconds or more at a time. I do a lot of cardio, so the legs were in good shape after two days of Auto Show Death March.

But the arms are more useless than my appendix. Or anything built by BYD. (By the way, BYD stands for Build Your Dream. If your dream is to build your own carbon copy of a 2004 Corolla, then you’re not reaching for the stars, my friend.)

My Death March included several long, hard slogs back to my car parked outside Cobo Hall across the street. You need a hand stamp to get back onto the show floor if you leave it. I left so many times that I got inked more than once. Yes, my peeps, I was drinking Dedication from Pure Concentrate. The commitment never gets watered down.

Soon, I’ll try to share a 30-second contest spot that I made for Toyota. Can’t wait till I get to do product narration. (Those tottering heels will hurt after hours on the turntable, but I can’t wait to say, “Thanks for your time, and enjoy the rest of your day here at the North American International Auto Show!”)
