The Mille Miglia Comes to Town: A Roadside Look at Passing Classics
Photography by Christian Baumann
While we’ve already covered the 2015 Mille Miglia quite extensively, the ever-engaging photographer and videographer Christian Baumann reached out to say that he’d been able to capture something we hadn’t yet been able to: the parade of passing classics.
Realizing that the cars would be passing closely to his village quite late, Baumann decided to instead wait for the cars before they entered Bergamo, the last stop before Brescia—by the time he’d arrived at Bergamo, the police had blocked the road, anyhow!
He says it was a typical, beautiful Sunday: cyclists, old cars, and modern cars all sharing the same twisting roads. Enjoy these shots—and remember that it’s possible to get awesome classic car photos almost anywhere, even at the side of the road!
