A search for a different picture turned up these photos from a recent car show. Yellow isn’t my favorite car color but, in this case, it works! Notice my self portrait in the second picture? I’m incapable of walking past a shiny object without taking my own picture.
Car shows are rich in people watching opportunities and the only place you can just walk up to someone’s car and ogle it without worry. It’s also a great place to play with your camera because lots of people are taking pictures and there’s a lot to look at!
A car show is one of my favorite places to be on a warm summer evening. I love classic cars and they’re fun to photograph so I spent Friday night wandering around the car show at Logan’s Washboard Festival. Just as good as the cars? There are ample opportunities for people watching!
This 1966 VW Bus arrived a little late and was an immediate hit with the crowd. It’s a little rough but the faded upholstery and touches of rust give this vehicle true character.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I suppose, but imperfections are often what give things true beauty and interest. Whether it’s a an inanimate object like a classic VW or even a person- each flaw is just a reminder that it has survived.
What’s a little rust when you consider how long this vehicle has been bouncing around the countryside? And boy- don’t you wish this car could talk? I’m dying to know where it has been and what it has seen over the last 53 years!
