Once again, if it's “semi-kinda-sorta-a-week-or-two-or-three-or more,” it must be my turn in the barrel. First off, it's been a hectic month or two (yeah, I know, I've used that excuse before, but consider it a “Summer Rerun”) and again, thanks to Marty for understanding my schedule, and for stepping up to the plate a few times in my absence. I continue to post a number of photos over at my Pheed account.
As I have said in the past, it's quick and easy and you get some great “exposure” (“Summer Rerun” reference number two!) That being said, and time being a factor, some of the only photo outings I have had time for have been once again revisiting a few of my favorites Central Illinois “haunts” (some, I think literally). One in particular as you will see, once inside, and taking “penguin steps,” not from diarrhea, but from taking those baby steps as to not fall through the rotted floors. Inside looking out, it reminded me of when “The Wizard Of Oz” switched from black and white to color.
Included this week are a few new “finds,” a great 1965 Chevy C10 pickup truck, with a red front wheel and a great mirror. Another “new” find was a 1954 Chevy Station Wagon (actually, a “Woody”), and an amazing black 1965 Ford Falcon Futura (with a built 302) that looked and sounded better in person.
I revisited one of my favorite “rusting grounds” again, and took more shots of the 1961 Thunderbird, and the pair of 1954 Buicks (a Roadmaster and a Century). Something different was an abandoned Piper Cub airplane, which I intend to “investigate” further. I do promise all of you some more twisted stories in the coming months as well as a few planned photo shoots, as hopefully my schedule will settle down a bit.
Until next time, to all of my wonderfully creative friends here, sit back, beat the heat in whatever way you choose, and look at the pretty colors. On a side note, only a few more weeks until "Breaking Bad" returns (only to leave us for good), that show, remains one of the best things I have ever seen on TV, as addicting as Crystal Meth, and the withdrawal are damn near as bad.
