Photo Essay

Reflecting on the Past...

Reflecting on the past...

This is a compilation of photos of restored vintage cars, and the interesting reflections that I see in them.

During the summer months, owners of these beautifully restored vintage cars gather together at large parking lots to show them off to the public.

I have photographed many of them, and in doing so, I have always found myself facing the problem of trying to eliminate the reflections that I thought were distracting.

After being frustrated trying to accomplish this, I decided instead, to try doing the opposite, and integrate the reflections into the scene. To my surprise, I found it rather appealing.

I guess the moral here is to experiment with breaking the rules, and do the opposite of what your supposed to do.

So, get out there and break some rules! (Photographically speaking... of course)
