Feeling nostalgic this morning

I’m feeling nostalgic this morning and have been spending the last hour looking through photos of our girls from the past few years. I am grateful that I’ve captured so many images of the girls at school, in sports, with their cousins, and especially in the normal everyday moments of their lives.

I connected with this photo today, just as I did with our daughter in the moment I took this photo more than three years ago.

1969 Shelby GT-500

I loved the reflections of city buildings, light, and passersby on the black paint of this 1969 Shelby GT-500.

It amazes me how much color can be reflected off of black paint!

Unexpected Reflections

With my camera at my side, I set out for downtown, hoping to find a vintage car or two to photograph. As luck would have it, I came across a 1950 Ford F1 truck (parked in perfect light!) and began photographing the details.
