In early July, we ventured out to Spearfish, SD for a family reunion with a large contingent of my extended family.

When the reunion ended, we drove back into Rapid City to spend a final night at the Alex Johnson hotel … and were taken by surprise when the streets surrounding the hotel were blocked off, forcing us to park a couple blocks away and haul our suitcases down to the hotel’s front entrance. It turns out that the streets had been blocked for a vintage car show — which consisted of dozens of brightly-painted, highly-buffed and polished old cars parked along the streets all around the hotel. After we had checked in, I went out to photograph the artist’s alley in more detail than had been possible when we first arrived a couple days later; and then, for good measure, I walked around the block a couple times,and photographed all of the fancy cars.
