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.
The Book of Lamentations 3:22-23 says, “… His mercies never stop. They are new every morning…” (New Century Version) I drive by this garden on the way to work most days of the week. I’ll walk through just to remind myself to keep trusting in God even as this world keeps getting darker. I shot this with the Hipstamatic app on iPhone 5. Loftus lens + Blackeys SuperGrain film. No flash.
