Post Office Detail

One of my goals for 2020 is to blog monthly. My apologies for being a couple days late on the first one. These are a couple architectural details from a photo club outing to the Old Post Office in Chicago. I decided to do black and white on the first and split toning on the second in Lightroom for fun.

Maybe I will do one for Valentines day in a couple weeks. Otherwise, I can continue with the Post Office photos.


Festival Car Show

I didn’t make it to the fireworks this 4th of July, but I did check out the festivities at a nearby small town. This festival had a car show, which is one of my favorite events to photograph. Old cars have so much beauty, detail, and style.

 

Hood ornaments and other markings showing the make and model are always of interest. I was particularly taken with this bird.

This Pontiac symbol made for a nice symmetrical shot. It was also a great subject to play with split toning. I kept it close to the actual color of the car.

I also liked the shapes and colors on this 442.

Headlights and tail lights have a lot of character as well.

This time, I had a favorite car in the show: a Corvette Stingray in this beautiful blue color. What a car!
