SLIDE OF THE WEEK

1957 Ford station wagon

This is a great slide, one of the most colorful station wagon shots I’ve ever run across. The gas station attendant checking under the hood while he’s fillin’ it up with Ethyl is the perfect finishing touch. The location wasn’t marked on the slide and I don’t recognize it so I just call it Somewhere, USA - hope that’s OK. The image is a bit soft. I never say out-of-focus, I call it dream focus or heavenly focus. Please do keep in mind this is amateur photography.
