Last day of the month, and that means it’s time for me to sort through the images I’ve made this past month and pick my favourite. I’ve actually started working on a book of photographs (details will surface somewhere down the road when I get closer to my goal), and part of that means going through, sorting out and editing about a thousand images in Lightroom so that’s been taking up a lot of my time.
Anyway, a couple of weeks ago Victoria was host to ‘Northwest Deuce Days‘ – what I’m told is an event that happens here every few years. The last one was in 2007. Somewhere around a thousand pre-1952 vehicles (including a number of 1932 Ford ‘Deuce Coupes’) converged on the city from all over North America for the three-day event, culminating with a display that occupied most of the inner harbour area on July 18. It was fascinating to see so many works of love, passion and dedication. As one rodder told me of his Model A, “It’s a labour of love. My wife calls it something else.”
It would have been overwhelming to make even one photograph of each vehicle present, but I did make a few good images that day. This one is my favourite. It’s a 1939 Chevrolet Coupe from Bakersfield, CA. Beautiful lines…
Now go out and make some pictures!!
