Antiques on wheels

The Maine Association of Obsolete Cars staged their annual exhibition this weekend on the grounds of the Boothbay Railway Village. This picture is the hood ornament of a 1927 Pontiac, whose owner bought it on eBay and restored it with a healthy helpings of time and money.

Dozens of old cars made the trek, some from New Hampshire, as well as Maine. I even saw a Florida license plate. (Ya see a lot of those, anyway - snow birds!).

Last summer, I spent a few nights at the Saco Drive-In

Drive-in movie theaters are fading from America and I wanted to ‘preserve’ this one in case it did not make the switch  to digital projection.  Happy to say, it did.

But one of the memories of those nights in Saco, at the drive-in, were mosquitos!  They were everywhere.  One family came prepared, though - they wrapped their car in netting.

Anyway, I went out last night to do some pre-Super Moon planning for tonight.  And ... yep beside the lake where I wanted to catch a moon reflection in the water. Mosquitos!

A desperate time called for a desperate measure.

 

 

A change of pace

Most of my photography is focused on people.  They call it ‘street photography’.  I like it because it enables me to see and talk with new, interesting, people. But, occasionally, I shoot different things.

Donna and I were walking, after dinner with some friends, on Capitol Island, near Boothbay.  About an hour before sunset.
