I found this still running 1954 Chevrolet parked behind a barn yesterday afternoon. The setting sun was shinning through the back window and I liked the colors and textures.
I was in the small town of Guadalupe yesterday and saw this in the window of a Chinese restaurant. I found the contrast interesting. The place was closed so I couldn’t ask about it. One could say it’s a statement about peace and war like the 60’s when the hippie’s put flowers in the businessend of a solder’s rifle. Or it could be that the owner just put them there for no reason. I may go back when they’re open and ask – or just let it be a mystery.
Most residences and many visitors of San Luis Obispo, CA have seen this strange tourist attraction but for all the rest of you I wanted to share. Both sides of the alley, which is 15 feet high and 70 feet long, is literally covered by gum. I happened to park right in front of it this morning and even though I’ve seen it hundreds of times I had not shot it. Now I have.
I’m not a street shooter but I’ve been reading various blogs about it. One that I like is @EricKimphoto who writes and makes videos with a lot of enthusiasm. I’m not ready to stick my camera in someone’s face yet but with zone focusing you can shoot from the hip which is what I did here. I though the clouds reflected in the cafe window was interesting.
