Yildiz and JT, thank you.
Apropos your four points, JT, for me regarding #1, I wanted avoid walking 1/2 mile each way with heavy bag than concern for safety.
Agree on #3 and #4 except I may continue to photograph at auto shows.
The same will be true for me with air shows where a cloudy
day may (and it had in the past) ruin your shots but then what the hey, I am already there.
Regarding #2, number of trips is more a function of checking the cars out, and then wanting to come back for a
different POV, for me. I did go around 2nd time but only to select cars.
That is my take on it.
