It’s taken a couple of years of owning a pocketable device that let’s me take pictures at any time (yes, I’m talking about my iPhone) to re-realize that I like old cars. I’ve seen this 1962 Imperial Crown for years parked in the same spot in Long Beach for years and just got to capturing it today. I must think about cars more than I am willing to admit because when I get the urge to buy a 99 cent Hot Wheels car I tend to reach towards the older model cars. I must have a thing for things of the past because I photograph with Hipstamatic lenses and film on my iPhone, which is basically the mobile-software equivalent of a vintage camera. I definitely like cars from the 50’s and 60’s although I’m not old enough to remember the experience of living in that era. I did see a picture of me as a toddler standing inside a red interior of my dad’s first car, a white 1964 Ford Falcon. Wait a minute, when was the last time I saw a white car with a red interior?… Amazing! I would love to jump in a time machine and drop into a studio to watch and listen to designers working on their concept cars. That won’t happen, but least I can see the results of their dreams and ideas every now and then on a street curb.
I have a family. I work with families. That's why I write about family. I'm a kidmin pastor by day, writer by night, delivery man for my wife's floral design business, and a picture-taker dude 24/7. View all posts by mrjoe
