Automobile Parts   Leave a comment

I’m a car guy with a non car wife, which makes me a practical car owner with impractical car dreams. ūüôā

Exotic or antique cars are one of those items that make no sense to own other than the pure thrill and joy of riding and the aesthetic of a beautiful curved painted piece of metal barreling down the highway. Very close to where I live, on the first Sunday of every month, a local car show is held in an empty parking lot. I love old cars and have always longed for a 1965 Cobra (replica of course, since an original costs millions). There are always a few at the show and I am including a few pictures here. I also love the way the color and reflections of cars photograph and whenever the opportunity arises, I look for an interesting angle, reflection or closeup.

A couple of years ago I went to Universal Studios with the family and located in the 1950’s era theme park were the cars pictured below. It’s just too bad they don’t make cars like this today.

Throughout my travels, I have stumbled upon rusty old beauty’s like the ones below. Wow, if these cars could talk. I can only imagine the miles they each traveled and the stories of the many roads and occupants whose paths they crossed. Photographing in HDR brings out all the character and color of these cars and I love how the rusty clunkers are brought back to life in these images. I’ll keep photographing old cars and maybe one day I may own one. You’ll see me with the top down, screaming like a little girl. ūüôā
