Needs A Little Work

Needs A Little Work.jpg

I took this photo a few years back. A classic T-Bird that was slowly fading away. I feel that way sometimes lately. Sometimes I feel the potential of what could be with restoration. It would take a lot of work, but this car could be restored to it’s previous glory. And I can feel that possibility about myself. And other days I wonder if that’s all gone. I had cancer recently, and it has made me face my mortality in a way I haven’t before. I think I always felt like I would live forever. But now I’m realizing that I may live a year, I may live 30 years, but it’s going so fast. I think I put off my goals while I did life, family, job, survival, all with the thot that I’d have time later. I may have time, but if I’m going to accomplish any of my goals I’d better get going. Or I can slowly fade away like this car.

Adding A Little Photography To The Mix

 

So far with this blog we’ve covered a bit of art, memories, spirituality, family, music, but not photography. I love photography and fancy myself as a creative, photo taking mess! I try to bring my experience and viewpoint from being a graphic designer and artist into my shot taking. The series of photos I’m featuring here are of a pair of old, abandoned Ford Thunderbirds, rusting away in all their classic glory. My wife doesn’t quite understand my fascination with decaying subjects but I enjoy the “character” of decay. Click on each image to see them larger and I hope you enjoy.
