what's up?

shady character

1937 pontiac eight

i was somewhat disappointed to find this lovely car parked in the shade of the main intersection of the uptown whittier car show last summer. the trees above dappled it with shadow, which mutes the detail and shine of the car. the location also guaranteed that there would be people moving through my shot.

it caught my eye, so i took it anyway. hopefully i'll see it again in a better light this year.

pontiac attack

1937 pontiac

got to the broiler late the other day. sun was already starting to set. had to park in a spot that really wasn't a parking space, because the place was so busy and i didn't want to park way out back in the dark. quickly got my gear out and took a first walk around the place to see what was on display this evening.

found this '37 pontiac around the front. it was so clean. how could i not take a picture of it? i took 4 points of view, and not really a bad one in the bunch. this one just seemed most interesting, with the sky showing off the chief's profile best.

a lot of people stopped to chat with me and look at my book, so i did not take as many pictures as i probably would have otherwise. i watched the sun set and answered their questions. i ended up staying later than i had planned.
