A Photo Gallery From Classic Days At Schloss Dyck 2018
Sponsored by Michelin
Two weeks ago, I was kindly invited by Michelin to attend the Classic Days in Schloss Dyck, a very traditional German event in the surroundings of a pristine castle in the west of Germany, which bears some similarities to the Goodwood Festival.
I tried to make it as early as I could on Friday so that I catch the cars in motion and take the best pictures I could. It did pay off as I managed to be there while the event was virtually empty, giving me lots of space to try different shots of the masterpieces there – lots of the cars participating in the exhibition I hadn’t seen before in real life.
As I mentioned before, the place was full of other masterpieces of the automotive history; here is my selection of photos to relive what was the Classic Days Schloss Dyck 2018!
On Saturday very early in the morning, I had the chance to have a talk with the owner of the famous green 300SL Gullwing with an original engine- never restored and with only two owners in its history, it was fascinating to hear a lot of racing stories and experiences with this car. In his company were his wife and the funniest dog, naturally posing for every single shot. (Lucky dog)
On Sunday, June 19th, we celebrated the first Carphiles event of this year. In a typical Berlin industrial backyard in the Xberg area where our friends from @conciergecoffee are located! I selected 19 iconic cars to stage and appreciate them in different ways. Here we were both car lovers and non-car lovers which in a different way is my way to draw the attention of those who don’t have an interest in cars, especially these design icons.
I think that in almost all my photos I can show my great love, passion, and respect for architecture and cars. That’s why I could say that this shooting is one of the best I’ve ever done in the almost 7 years I’ve been specializing in cars. This time I was in one of the most prominent buildings of Swiss Brutalist architecture, combined with one of the great icons of the 80s, the Testarossa.
Everything comes to an end in some way, such as air-cooled engines or more recently the end of one of Europe’s most emblematic and modern airports of the 1970s: Berlin Tegel TXL.
