Ford Shoots Ford




Last year around this time I posted a “Ford Shoots Chevy” photo from the Blacktop Nationals car show.  This year it was a Ford that had the best hubcap for a self portrait.   So there you have it!

Ford Out Front



Just a couple of Ford related images from the Blacktop Nationals car show in Wichita a couple of weeks ago.   I love the details on the old cars.   I was going to say I love the details on the old Ford’s, but I see that in the mirror every day wink-wink.




Ford Shoots Chevy



The recent car show in Wichita was actually sponsored in large part by the Ford Motor Company.  Since my last name is Ford, I thought about trying to pass myself off as somebody from corporate headquarters.   I am either too shy, honest, or chicken to have tried that –  but oh,  how amusing it could have been, at least until they called security.

This is a little self portrait, reflected in a shiny Chevy hupcap.   A high percentage of the cars on display were Chevy’s.   I have no explanation.

Old Ford

This one’s for Ken Bello.   I’ve been photographing the Wichita Riverfest the last week.  (Just for fun, they have a photo contest.)  One of Saturday’s events had a car show of sorts, all manner of vehicles parked downtown on display.   I’ve never really had the opportunity to try this type of show car photography before.  This old Ford convertible was drawing a lot of attention.  Great details and paint on this car.  I’m seeing all manner of reflections in the chrome and paint that I hadn’t noticed during initial processing.   I can see where you need to be mindful of  reflections when doing this sort of thing.
