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.

Okay, time for a break from the flowers and stuff. Tonight I thought I would post something from my old car files, you know....when cars were cars! They were made of real steel, and compared to today's standards of plastics and alloys, they were built like tanks. Anyway, one of the things the "old guys" liked to do a lot was individualize their cars with their own version of custom pin striping. Some of them were quite artistic and beautifully done. This one caught my eye as the reddish orange stood out against the black body, and made a fairly bold graphic statement. So, I thought I would see what I could do with this one, and cropped it severely to show only the graphic elements, and forget about the identity of the vehicle itself. Personally, I have always found graphics appealing, probably because away back in the mists of time, when I went to school, Geometry was by far my best subject. Consequently, it has wormed its way into my photography in these later years....hope some of you enjoy it a bit....
