“Rockin the Terraplane”

This post is a really simple one. I have an image of a really cool Terraplane. Don’t ask me the year, for I haven’t a clue! Well maybe a 1935. Feel free to let me know! 🙂

This baby is gorgeous Ruby Red!! I processed it first in color, then again in B&W using Nik Silver Efex Pro.
I tend towards the color version, but I do like the way it processed in the monochrome also!

Your mission should you chose to accept is to………………let me know which image you prefer and why. 🙂

“1960”

Bringing us back once again to the 2013 Motor Muster in Dearborn Michigan!

I must say that the Motor Muster is a real must( no pun intended ) for car lovers, and history buffs alike. There’s so much to be found across the many acres that envelope this annual car show.

In my last post I brought you some memorabilia from the 1950’s including the Brownie Hawkeye camera. In this post we have a full front and left side view of the beautiful 1960 Buick Le Sabre in blue with assorted things from around that time period laid out neatly on a blanket in front of the car.

Unlike my last post which focused mainly on the camera and magazine with very little of the 1955 Jaguar associated with it. This image brings you the full scene. Luckily for me, this little ensemble also included a camera from around the same time period a Kodak Duaflex III, which actually went out of production in 1960.

What I love so much about this is the feeling of nostalgia. Memories that take me back to a different time and place. That’s something that is a wonderful feeling. I feel that preserving and restoring vintage or classic cars, buildings, homes, structures, signs, cameras, etc. is an important part of sharing the past with future generations to come.

Of course preserving the land, forests, oceans, lakes, and……well you get the idea. Taking care of the whole world is another even more important trust on mankind, and therefore will have to remain a topic for another post, or better yet many posts!!

I hope you enjoy today’s image. Let me know if you’ve ever had the opportunity to drive or own a 1960 Buick Le Sabre, or if you have a Duaflex I, II, III, or even a IV camera in your vintage camera collection, maybe you even have photos that were taken with it! I’d love to see those! 🙂

I’ll be posting more images from the Motor Muster in future posts. But for now:

Have a great week everyone!!

“Rockin the Monochrome”

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to go to a vintage automobile show at Greenfield Village in Dearborn Michigan. It’s called the Motor Muster, a yearly show which brings automobile enthusiasts of every kind together with more cars, motorcycles and other vehicles than you can shake a stick at!!

I have just started to get to these images, so while looking through them at first glance, these two popped out at me, and said MONOCHROME!!

Here we have the wheel and details of a beautiful 1955 Jaguar, and the stunning hood ornament from a Rolls Royce of an unknown year. Unknown to me at least! 😉

I’ll be bringing you more images from the 2013 Motor Muster, next time in color. I have a fun image coming up that also involves a vintage camera.

For now, enjoy these and have a great week ahead to all!!

“1903 Ford Model A” 2

As many of you who follow me know. I’ve been working through a mountain of automobile images. I decided to post just one more car image here, then after that it will back to our regularly scheduled programming. No seriously, I’ll get back into more nature images!! I think I’m about Car-d out LOL!! 😉

I did find this car here to be of quite a bit of interest though. A 1903 Ford Model A, in fact the only one still surviving. The details are fantastic, and of course beautifully cared for. Shiny red paint, white tires with red spokes on the wheels. Plus a beautiful brass steering wheel and horn!! Truly a marvel from 110 years ago!!

I hope you enjoy this image, and if you’re a car lover. I have many images of different types of cars and their details on my site. So for now, until the next auto show, or maybe a muscle car show, I think I’ll stick to nature, landscapes, and maybe an abstract here and there!! 😉
