The Automobile as Art

I've had a few projects I've been working on, one of which I've recently completed. I've always appreciated the style of classic cars: the curves, the chrome, the exaggerated edges and shapes... so I decided to do a photography study of some of these design elements, a study of the design of classic automobiles as art, rather than just transportation.

Included in this document (download PDF) are pictures of a classic Chevy Corvette, some Studebakers, a Ford Fairlane, some Chevy Bel Airs and, my all time favorite, a Ford Galaxie Skyliner Retractable. I wish I could have found my second favorite classic car, a 1961 Lincoln Continental convertible with suicide doors (think the opening of HBO's Entourage), but alas that model was not to be found at the shows I attended.

2005 L/A Balloon Festival

In most years, I attend the annual balloon festival here in Lewiston, ME. It's usually a great source of interesting, colorful photography, and it gets me up off of my butt and gets me out using my camera, something I need to do a lot more of.

This compilation (download PDF) is the highlight of my shots from 2005. The conditions were fair, it was REALLY hot and the sky was hazy, but the compositions aren't bad.
