Alphabe Thursday has come full circle. The last post completed the twenty-sixth letter of the Alphabet so this week we start over with the letter "A". I really didn't want to go for the obvious and rejected airplanes, apples and automobiles, but, after a long search of my photos realized that I just couldn't resist doing automobiles. I have several shots of cars I have been wanting to share for a while now and this is the perfect chance, even if my "A" word is one I expect to be very popular this week.
The Old Salt hates for me to make collages of my photos, so please forgive me if you happen to feel the same way about them. But, I fear that using several collages is the only way to reduce the size of the post.
One day at the beginning of this school year my sister called asking if I could pick up her exchange student for her. I arrived a little early and while I waited I noticed this car on the faculty parking lot and snapped a couple of shots. The windows were covered in yellow post-it notes. I later learned the students were pulling a prank on one of the teachers who happens to like pulling practical jokes on his students.
While visiting my sister in Omaha I photographed this old station wagon parked on the street outside my BIL's office. The car has a handicapped tag on the mirror and animal print seat covers to go with the fancy paint job. If I could have waited for the drivers return I would have expected it to be an old hippie gentleman with a full bread and ponytail carrying a guitar case.
On one of our gadabouts we found this group of antique automobiles parked at the rest stop we pulled into. I watched as the drivers had a conference on the sidewalk and snapped a few shots as the motorcade rounded the curved drive headed for the freeway. I assumed they were members of a car club headed to a show.
I am linking this post to Alphabe Thursday.
