Dallas, I tried to think of a pun answer but it was too much pressure and I couldn't get a grip on it.
By the way, Joy asked our 8 year old Grandson what a pun was. He said "Wellll...It's kind of like a joke but not as funny".
I'm not sure I agree.

We used to see that several times in the Park when we were Kids. Often two dozen bears-in-the-road in a thirty mile stretch. Many more tourists and a few bad instances has changed all that. Thanks for the second look, Perry.

A contrast between the old and new goggles seemed interesting today. Some will remember this project.

We did torture the children from birth with the open car rides and the obnoxious people who tour in them. There ought to be a law.
To get back at us they send their grandchildren to us to punish in the same way while telling their friends what adventures they had in those days.

Some rain and a later Cadillac compliment the Coupe. As a kid I played baseball in a field next to the old house. It was in a different location then. It seems like we had to replace one of it's windows. When the lady who owned it passed away Doc Battles moved his office there. Prior he practiced on the second floor of the Gaiety Theater.

In the "cool old hardware" dept. - horse barn in our place was originally a 4-horse shed with tie-stalls. It probably dates from about 1905, I love the ridged hinges and ceramic knobs on the manger doors. Apologies for the Phillips screws, which I really detest, but slotted head wood screws have disappeared from hardware supply.

Getting the exposure right on a photo of a black car is awfully difficult. If you get the car right, the background and everything else will be washed out, or if you get the background and everything else right, the car becomes a solid black blot with no texture or detail. Fortunately, there's Photoshop, which is what I use to balance the exposure of the various elements independently. It also allows me to eliminate distracting details like the lines painted on the pavement and the modern guard rail.

Nice touch Bob. I usually do a little with Photoshop on mine. I'm not the best photographer and my camera is simple enough to keep me out of trouble. The photo I posted today shows some of the building in the wrong light. The car is not the main feature of the picture. Choosing the right location doesn't always yield the best results.
Photoshop has spoiled me. I'm glad my wife subscribes. ;)

Fall will be here soon enough. The creeping in of cooler temps and shorter days gives
cause to stop and feel the sun on one's face and just take in the warmth, the smells of
crisp air, cut wood, and hot oil. In a month it will smell like snow and everything frozen,
until spring brings the smells of life back to the air.

This telephone line was built in 1880 and traversed some breathtaking country. I find
so much beauty in the rust and rock and lichens, but equally as much in the understanding
of what it must have taken to build a line like this in such incredibly rough country at a
time when there were no power tools, and what such a line meant to the surrounding
communities. To hike and climb these cliffs was the stuff that fills the soul. As Rich has
mentioned so much before, the colors are incredible. The sun on the metal and rock
create a unique warmth and smell. The Fir, Juniper, and Pine fill the air with an intoxicating
aroma.

After spending the better part of a century out in the high desert country of sage
brush and Ponderosa Pine, the combination of sun baked grease, rust, and lichens
make the wonderful cast iron embossing of this TT rear end and Lincoln transmission
look even better. One can almost smell the hot metal just looking at the photo.

Sorry, this isn't a Ford but I love the picture. Taken on April 18th at around 4:45 AM in the morning as we annually drive to San Francisco to attend the 1906 earthquake commemoration ceremony in our 06 Locomobile with lights a blazin. The event is held at Lotta's Fountain (where these pictures were taken) on Market St. and commences at 5:13 AM each year, the same time that the devastating earthquake began in 06. I'm including 2 pictures because one of them doesn't really show enough of the bright carbide lights. I hope you like them as much as I do.
