That’s right people, you can’t escape Mini Takes the States. This is the just the beginning of many more photographic posts highlighting the best pictures taken by my friend Peter whom I was on the trip with. This is from Day 1 (the 4th of July)
Pete’s Cooper S lined up at Mini HQ in Woodcliff Lake, NJ.
Uncle Sam greeting all the Mini owners and telling jokes.
Before we left the Mini HQ to start the first day of driving we were treated to a stunt driving demonstration.
A collaboration between me and pete. He took the burst pics, I made it a GIF. Click the image to see the “animation.”
One of the lead cars was pulling along side us. Pete drew his camera and shot.
Citizens Bank Park, home of the Philadelphia Phillies.
“The Spirit of St. Louis,” the first plane to make a transatlantic flight; flown by Charles Lindbergh.
An overview of the Simthsonian Air and Space Museum.
This is the Bell X-1 (aka “Glamorous Glennis“), the first jet to break the sound barrier.
This picture I did photoshop because the colors were super saturated and it was blown out. I love how much of a hippie I look here.
Our view of the fireworks over the Washington Monument as seen from the Newseum balcony.
A great shot of the Capitol Building from the Newseum balcony.
The D.C. metro felt like a cross between 2001: A Space Odyssey, EPCOT, and Tomorrowland.
Please note: these are not photoshopped with the exception of being resized and the addition of the Peter Iannaco Photography watermark.
