Photos and Commentary


  • This blog is mostly devoted to photography. I'm still learning, and each photograph I take teaches me more about how to do it better the next time.

    I like this quote by Jacques-Henri Lartigue: “I take photographs with love, so I try to make them art objects. But I make them for myself first and foremost - that is important.”

    Thanks for visiting!

Mel’s Drive-in

Posted by blueheronbobcat on December 27, 2011

No, this isn’t the REAL Mel’s Drive-in in Hollywood. But it’s a pretty cool replica at Universal Studios Florida. I spent a day there over the holidays and enjoyed the nostalgia of this setting.

Looking Better with Age

Posted by blueheronbobcat on March 28, 2010

The annual antique boat festival was held this past weekend in Tavares, Florida.  It was very interesting, but once again I found myself more intrigued with the antique automobiles than with the antique boats.  With all the modern cars available these days it seems that I never get tired of looking at these antique beauties.  True wooden doors, beautiful paint jobs, smooth curves, what more could you ask for….except maybe air conditioning here in Florida.

I saw the gentleman, in the photo below, looking at the inside of the car.  I liked the blend of his shirt and shorts with the color of the car and the surrounding landscape.  He started to walk away and I asked if he would come back and let me photograph him.  He obliged, and I think the photo turned out nice.
