What Was



History is a guide to navigation in perilous times. History is who we are and why we are the way we are.
David C. McCullough

My friend and I went to shoot what we thought we going to be almond trees and blossoms. Well we found in addition all of these old cars and history left on the farm. The people I go out to photograph with know that I have a love of these old rusting things. I think it's the textures because they photograph so phenomenally. Not to mention I have a love of history (plus being an child of the auto industry). We didn't have much time and the sun was bright, so we're going to go back and shoot at the "golden hour". We did get some almond blossom shots too and I'll share those, but these were what caught my attention. But at the end of the trip my friend and I agreed we might love shooting these old things, but we wouldn't want to live around them. I loved the GMC union one and think I'll do it up for my father. He is in the dark ages and doesn't own a computer so it will be a surprise when I send it.
