Day 2 was all sorts of car coolness and the girls (that run the show) were in force. Now, I had several conversations with people about these women and many were slightly offended, saying that it was “exploitation.” Let’s ponder this for a moment…

There’s two ways to look at this situation. One is easy. The other takes effort, but is the truth

The easy way is to judge upon appearances, judging the companies for having these girls there, judging guys like me who take the photos and judging the girls themselves. You think it’s bad, but it really doesn’t reflect on them. It reflects on you… badly. Judging based on appearances isn’t the truth. You’ll never know why someone is actually doing a thing, but simply guess.

The truth takes a bit more effort…

Girls at the show are there for a number of reasons. They exist and are getting paid to look beautiful. They want to do this and for the most part, enjoy it. It’s their living and their CHOICE as models. They know that men are the primary target here and men love women. But the still deeper level is this…

When I take a photo like the above, I always show the girls the photo. They love to see themselves as their “look” is very important to them. It’s why they do what they do and they need this. Who are we kidding… They need to feel good about themselves as we all do. You can help them and bring them joy by showing them a good shot and telling them how beautiful they look. This takes effort and not everyone is comfortable in doing this.

But if you snap a secret shot and just pass by, you miss an opportunity to make someone feel special. Consider this. We’re here to bring joy and love to people. All people. It’s our purpose. It’s YOUR purpose. It’s why I post these shots of the cool cars. It’s fun and you guys enjoy them. It brings ALL GOOD.

Respect people and their jobs. Seriously. These girls are giving themselves so they can bring beauty into the world, make a living and bring themselves a good life as best they can. It’s a good job. It’s awesome and we should know that were are all doing the same thing with the assets we have. Not all of us are beautiful. But what’s your asset and how are you bringing it to the world? What are YOU giving? Instead of judging, concentrate on making yourself better and THAT in itself, will create a better life for YOU.

Now, onto the cool cars…
