SmugMug Appreciation Sunday — No. 017

The background for these posts can be found in THIS post.

In brief, these posts serve to introduce new readers — and reintroduce regular readers — to photos from the early days of this blog and, occasionally, to photos from days before this blog came into existence.

Today, I offer two galleries with a total of 47 photos originally shared in these two posts (Resting Now Part 1, Resting Now Part 2).

I like photographing old cars, both in their restored states and in less well-maintained states.

The first set of photos is from the grounds of a Comfort Inn in Amarillo, Texas.

“Wow! That’s . . . that’s a bit sad, actually.”

Well, Bob, I suppose it’s better than being scrapped and recycled.

Here’s another one that was nearby . . .

I tried a few old looks with the then-current Topaz Plugins . . .

There were also some wagons from the early 1900s strewn about.

I should have taken more macro shots, but all I found is one . . .

The next gallery is from a familiar place: Guffey.

Here’s a truck in original and monochrome treatments . . .

Many of the photos are duplicates with me trying different processing options.

Here’s a panorama shot of part of the area where these cars rest, along with some close-ups.

Anyway, they may be small galleries, but if you like old cars, give them a look-see.

Note: the transition is set to 2sec, but — if you move the cursor anywhere within the photo — you’ll see a pause button on the lower left, and, once paused, you can use the left and right arrows on both sides of the photo to navigate the slideshow. If you click anywhere in the photo instead of the pause button, you’ll exit the slideshow and find yourself in SmugMug. You can still scroll through the photos, or interact in other ways.
