This past weekend was one of the many busy weekends of Spring here in Moab. It was the annual car show held at Swanny Park in the center of town. Hundreds upon hundreds of cars, trucks, trailers, and motorcycles make their way into town. Some are vintage, from the 1940’s and 50’s and all the way to the brand new 2014 models. I’ve always been interested in older cars, bikes, and trailers. Even had the opportunity to restore old airstreams at Texas Vintage Travel Trailers located in New Braunfels, TX. Check some of the trailers we worked on at the link——>(http://picasaweb.google.com/117405366874232731194?gsessionid=rBflyQXDXEPlPtA9p2aCHw) Even one of my own that myself, my partner, and my dog lived in for about a year. It was good work, where you can see what you’ve done at the end of the day. Often times at the end of the day, covered in dirt and grime, or cuts on your hands and arms. It was worth it, because you were bringing something back to life.
So walking through these vehicles this past weekend, it was easy to appreciate the work these people had put into these pieces of art. Imagining most of these people,retired, or not, working after hours on something they loved doing. Working by a lamp, or inside in a garage.Splitting time between actually working and talking about it with their partner, whether it was a significant other, best of friends, or a random stranger.Something that brought rust to a polish and putter to a rev. Its an art.
This was really my first time trying to capture these through a lens.
