[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a photo of my husband Mike with his Grandfather's 1935 Ford. It had been his grandfathers dream to drive this car in the annual July parade when it was finished being restored. Unfortunatly health prevented him from finishing the car, so his grandsons took on the task, and got the car driveable. Mike dressed in his best "gangster" suit and durby hat and drove the car that day and Grandpa sat next to him, with his daughters in the backseat. They had a good time I think and even though the dream wasn't quite what he had in mind, I hope it was close enough. Mike's grandfather has since passed away and the car is at home in my driveway. This photo is a cherished family memory, and I just had to see if I could preserve it digitally to save.

It was an extremely sunny day and I remember having a hard time seeing through the cameras viewfinder, so unfortunately the car was cut off on the left :-( I've posted a workshop that deals in a humorous way with this problem!

Beautiful car Lori nice to see it is still around. Looks like a great job has been done on the car. A great job has been done on the picture too. Well done.


Nice shot but maybe a horizontal framing would have been better in order not to cut this beautiful car which is the main character of the shot or am I wrong ? IMHO, of course.

I love this photo; I'm just waiting for Bonnie to appear so they can make their getaway. (Bonnie & Clyde) Good shot but I think the foregound grass area should have been cropped off right at the shadow of the front of the car; it adds nothing. Keep up the good work.

Nice post with a really warm note. The picture is great (even without the whole front). The car and the "gangsta" really look like they are not from these days. Thanks for this humorous post.
