Old Skool

I was driving home in Glendora on Memorial Day weekend and noticed that one of the local diners was having a car show in its parking lot. So I grabbed my camera and drove back to take some shots. What a blast!

The show featured Chevy Chevelle’s. Cars don’t excite me very much. But there was something electric about being in a crowd of people who appreciated these machines. Such meticulous care was being invested into these show cars. I walked down the lines of cars as men tenderly caressed hoods and fenders with soft cloths. Owners sat in lawn chairs next to their cars, soaking up the spectators’ veneration. As I was taking a photo of an engine, one man, with a fair amount of zeal, pointed out some sort of assemblage under the hood to his young pre-teen son. Together, father and son, stood entranced in a galvanizing bond of mutual admiration.

Me. I liked the colors, the lines and the intricate details. And everything was so shiny and fun to shoot.
