The Intricate Parts of an Automobile

Tonights post is a prelude to my day off tomorrow.  The World of Wheels car show is in Pittsburgh this weekend and tomorrow you will find me meandering through the cars with camera in hand.  I’ve posted before about my love of the automobile and the ties that I have to it and my father.  Tomorrow will be no exception, although he is gone now I know that he would have truly loved this show.  I hope you enjoy the photos as much as he would have.

Here are a few cars from past shows.  Tomorrow I will post some from this years show.

The Automobile: My Way

Tonight, I decided to share some my vision of that amazing invention: The Automobile.  To say I’m a fan of cars would be a “slight” understatement.  I have been involved with cars my whole life.  As a kid, instead of playing in the streets, I was normally at home working on a car of some sort.  My dad was a mechanic and painted cars.  And I was always right there along side of him working, helping, and learning.  I learned many things about the cars that we worked on and grew to have a great appreciation for classic and antique cars.  My dad and I never missed an opportunity to visit a car show.

Years later I started to photograph automobiles and found that overall shots of the cars was, well, kind-of boring. So I began to photograph parts of the cars and I think that the results show the intricacies of the car that many may never have noticed. Today I’m am posting several closeups of classic and antique cars.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.  Feel free to let me know what you think.
