I am an unabashed Petaluma promoter. There is so much to do in this town and so many activities and events to attend that it seens as if something fun happens every week. The latest event was Petaluma’s salute to American Graffiti. For a day a large section of the downtown turned into an open-air auto museum, the likes of which many Americans would be happy to pay admission to.

Last year the photos I took focused (pun intended) on the autos; the emblems, insignias, hubcaps and other details of the fine, old vehicles on display.

This year I decided to concentrate on the people/crowds in attendance with an eye to including local landmarks that identify Petaluma as the site of the show.
