Week’s Work

with 4 comments

Over the past couple of weeks a took a couple hundred photos, but didn’t have much time to work with them,  post-processing and so on.  Next week proves to just as busy, I can’t seem to breath Monday thru Friday.  Living for the weekends here!  I’m in one of those situations where I can’t relax.  I have a pile of books I want to read, but I can’t relax enough to read even five pages.  I have three high-profile projects, and I have to keep my wits about me.  I wish I could retire, but that’s just not in the cards right now.

First Year for Mercury – 1939

leave a comment »

I took Sadie (our collie) out for a ride yesterday toting my camera bag along.  Drove through Eustis, FL on FL 19.  That particular stretch of road is still full of 1950s era signage, mostly motel and restaurants. We drove 5 or 6 mile north toward the fairgrounds then turned back.  FL19 (also known as Bay Ave) splits – two lanes of traffice going north separated by homes and businesses and two lanes going south.  On the southbound side is Ferran Park which is on the banks of Lake Eustis.  A group of classic cars enthusiasts were gathering for a weekly cruise-in and I got some nice shots of some truly great cars and trucks.  This 1939 Mercury Four Door was a beauty.  The owner was quick to tell me that this was the first year for the Mercury line of FOMOCO cars.  Hope you like them.
