Pontiac~1941

.

Might as well finish out the week with another cool hood ornament.  This one is from a 1941 Pontiac, on display at the Black Top Nationals in Wichita.

Another hood ornament, this time from a 1941 Cadillac on display at the Black Top Nationals in Wichita.


Bel Air

 

.

There was a big car show called the Black Top Nationals in Wichita this past weekend.  Yesterday I spent some time there shooting.  This hood ornament on a 1950’s vintage Chevrolet Bel Air is my favorite image so far, but I haven’t finished post processing the rest.   I’d guess at least 20% of the pre 1960 cars at the show were Chevrolet Bel Airs.   Ken Bello, I had this post planned before I saw your’s this morning, I swear!


Sunset at the Lake

 

.

Mother nature must have known I needed new material.   The skies were interesting this weekend so I headed out to Sedgwick County Park in Wichita.  One of my favorite spots near the windmill was not working, the sunset was directly behind a big old ugly transmitter tower.   As sometimes happens, this turned out to be a fortunate turn of events as it forced me to find a new, better location from which to admire this handsome sunset.


Lightning Over Wichita

 

.

I was cooking a little dinner Saturday night when a big crash of thunder startled me.   Not that thunder is uncommon here, just that we are in a drought and have not seen rain for a long time.  A brief rain shower was followed by a fairly good lightning display, so naturally I had to run out and try to get some lightning images.
