Cars…Chrome…Symbols Of Our Past

Car shows, period & antique, are part of our culture in California. Photos in this post are from the May 7, 2011 Petaluma Plazarama show. The photos are not of the “traditional” type, focusing instead on the shapes, symbols, and chrome that once were trademarks of American automobiles.

For the record, the “star bursts” on some of the photos were not added in post production editing. As the photos were taken midday, I had to struggle to lower or control the reflections and still produce useful images…in the camera.
