BMW and Saveur's Culinary Road Trip Part One: The Cars

November 22, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

I’ve really fallen behind on the blog posts.  I have all this work but not enough time to post it!

Thought I’d share some photos from an event I shot in September. Those last days of summer were great.  I wish I could hang on to them all year round.

Unfortunately we in the Northern hemisphere now have several months of winter to slog through. So for now I’ll don my warm cap, fasten my scarf around my shoulders, and imagine I’m sitting on the patio enjoying a nice summer breeze.


The event was a collaboration between BMW of Mountain View and Saveur Magazine. The dealership invited its top customers to test drive some of their high end vehicles. Then they sat down to an excellent meal composed by Saveur and The Four Seasons.

These cars were immaculate.

It wouldn’t be car porn without some detail shots, right?

The dealership staff were there, merrily checking in their customers and fielding questions.

Customers had about an hour to test drive the cars.

This just cracked me up. This man looks like he’s having so much fun! Like this should be an ad for winning the lottery.


I have a lot more pictures, but since the event was 4 hours I thought I would break them into several posts. Do you prefer this style of post or one with more of an essay style?

What’s your favorite German car?
