The Hubs is a total car guy. Whenever he talks to me about them, I get the same glazed over look in my eyes that he gets when I talk to him about photography. Truth be told, I like looking at old cars, I even like riding in the car when he races, but I do not like discussing them. Fortunately for him, he has a bunch of friends who totally enjoy those conversations and they leave me to take pictures.

I follow one of our local coffee shops, Tamp and Grind, on Instagram and saw that they were hosting Coffee and Cars this weekend, so I sent The Hubs an invite. He insists that I call it “Coffee and Cars”, but we all know what’s important here…

I didn’t get any snaps of the coffee shop, which is unfortunate, because it really is a funky little cafĂ©. Next time I’m inside, I’ll ask if it’s OK for me to take some pictures.

I was able to take a few pictures of the show cars…


Aren’t they beautiful? The first car belongs to The Hubs. It’s a Chevy SS and he adores it… The color is one of those that looks different depending upon where you’re standing and what time of day it is.


There were a few vendors dotted along the street. Of course, I went straight for the pottery and found myself a pretty little coffee mug, made by Elizebette Kennedy.


I love love love the wall art in downtown Alexandria. I’m not sure who does it, but I do know that one of the local advertising agencies sponsors a wall and it’s kind of a “thing” to get your picture made in front of it. It’s down the street from where I work, but I have yet to get a picture. I know, I know. Bad photographer, community tourist, etc. But I will get it done…

In the meantime, you can see some of my other pictures from downtown Alexandria here.
