A pretty big hit for me on LaLD’s instagram: over 400 likes or whatever that is called on insta.

One of the last days of the year is appropriate to look back a bit. It was quite a hefty year with quite the horror but then again our LaLD/Oppo community sure got me many, many positive vibes to compensate a bit. Even meeting some of you in person. Thank you all for a great year in, at least, diecast and automotive. And for giving me the chance to learn a lot about the cars & photography in the process. Let’s hope 2017 will be a great year, I sure hope to see/read/meet you all next year again! And enjoy some of my favorites from 2016. Or not. Whatever: Pic-Heavy! Bonne AnnĂ©e!!!
