Fords & Friends Car Show and Picnic

While I am happy that the gasoline powered vehicle is on the way out, I am sad to see the demise of the car as an objet d'art. The age of the automobile surely produced some of America's most stunning artistic designs and time only improves most classic cars. Last weekend I attended the Fords & Friends Car show and Picnic out at the Saanich Historical Artifacts Society grounds and discovered that almost nothing photographs better than a bunch of beautifully restored and customized cars, especially those from the nineteen forties, fifties and sixties. Here's a taste - more to come.

I do like the curves in some of the older 1930s models. The fins and sharp corners are for a younger generation although we owned all of them at one time or another in our lives.

I also like your car photography in that you did concentrate on the curves and color and the play of light and shadow.

Great photos. We were there last year and really enjoyed the show. Love the pix of the reflection of the photographer.
