I felt like an auto industry photographer this week, as the morning after my return flight from SEMA in Las Vegas I was behind the lens again shooting the Seattle Auto Show. Lance joined me in pushing buttons and critiquing design choices. I most impressed this year by Buick – impressive interiors and competitive cars for the price – and Hyundai – unique designs with a distinctive California studio flavor, really coming into their own rather than just shadowing trends.

Much bigger than last year – even despite the conspicuous absence of Dodge/Chrysler – the Seattle Auto Show this week at Qwest Exhibition Center was a great place for some glossy photos and for #1GF Cara and I to admire/critique the automotive industry’s 2011 design choices. We saw some beautiful sheetmetal, some disappointing details, a few models we would buy and a lot we wouldn’t, and a strong trend towards two-tone brown interiors – and it’s all here in the photo gallery.
