From a Box Brownie, to the latest digital gear, it is all just tools, or a means of stating who we are, at various points in time. The sophistication of our images has more to do with our personal growth, than the equipment that we acquire along the way.

The Flying "B" of the 2015 Bentley was to me a bit of a throw back to the old days when all the cars had very distinctive hood ornaments. It is indeed a statement of status, of the good life and affluence. When I was shooting this image, my mind actually drifted back to about 4 hours earlier, when we were coming up out of the tunnel and were met in the middle of the road by an obvious homeless person who was begging for a hand out from anyone who would stop for him. Life for him will not likely ever be an easy one, but I am not sure that I would wish upon him the burdens associated with this level of "good fortune" either.....but my guess is that he would probably have other ideas about that. At any rate, the car was a real show stopper, and it was hard to find elbow room to grab a few shots.
