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.

Thinking about cars today

Today, I’m thinking about my love for photographing vintage cars.

Here is a beauty from 1957,

a Chevy Impala SS,

and an old Chevy truck in the fall morning light in my neighborhood.

I love the colors, details,

and the passion vintage car owners express for their cars.

And, every now and then, cars provide an amusing location for self portraits as well!
