    My kids baked some cookies today. We decided to deliver them to grandma and grandpa as a surprise. Our route takes us by this big grass field in what is otherwise the normal suburbs of the Sacramento region.

    my daughter, 14, recently got a new iPhone and really loves the camera so she asks if we could stop a take some pictures. She just digs the car culture and I think these pictures speak for themselves (iPhone 11, no filters applied).

    And she did also add her own artistic twist:

    Great pictures! Great how the angular lines aim toward the horizon and new adventures! GREAT that you helped the grandparents have a nicer time, too!

    Enjoy!

    Thanks for all the likes and compliments. My daughter is really enjoying this medium.

    if you guys want, she’d be up for trying it out on your cars... we found this one from @cbarge on the site that she really liked and she added her own artistic touch (hope I didn’t offend). If you like it, post your own pic and she will give it a go.

    Be safe, stay healthy!

    My daughter is continuing to feel out her artistic outlets and enjoys our '68 300 as her muse. Big props to the folks who found her products on the RedBubble website. 1968 Chrysler by Mochrie.

    She is open to designing more grill artwork like the 1968 300 one below. If you are fond of a particular year, post a straight on pic of the grill here and she will make that her next piece. I will post a note on this thread when it is up on the RedBubble site.

    I live about an hour and fifteen minutes south of Sacramento and even though I have lived here for almost 20 years, the reality is I don't know a lot about the areas around Sacramento. Yesterday, a group of friends and I took a drive up through the Delta and wound up in a little place named Clarksburg, at the Old Sugar Mill. It is a collection of local wineries in an old sugar mill, and some of them are really good. It was a great drive along the River (I had never even heard of Ryde before, either) and we all had a truly great time. I am guessing you know about it but if you don't, I can whole-heartedly recommend it.

    I know the place. Years ago the department I worked in held a retreat at the Sugar Mill. I and another friend in the department were responsible that year for organizing the Retreat.. Needless to say, the venue was a big success, as was the caterer we hired for the event. One of my sons also got married there and was a beautiful wedding scene.
