I was disappointed when Word Press stopped the Daily Post Prompts and Weekly Challenges as they used to help fuel my posts. When my own inspiration ran dry, I could often rise up to a prompt or challenge. Fortunately other bloggers have picked up the mantle including Cee’s Photography. The topic of Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week is ‘Things People Drive’ so here you go!
How about this 1947 Lincoln? I wish it was in my garage but I found it at the LeMay Car Museum in Tacoma. It reminds me of an old Mercury we had when I was a kid. The era I guess. It was long and smooth and rounded and yellow, and could hold the whole family with all five kids. I can remember standing on the back seat of that car – it was like a sofa and no seatbelts in those days – holding an ice cream cone and when there was a bump in the road I anointed the car’s headliner with chocolate ice cream. I can still see that smudged imprint on the interior.
Next up is a ferry boat. I must have taken one across Puget Sound hundreds of times but honestly it never gets old. The Washington State Ferry system is the largest in the country and fourth largest in the world in case you didn’t know.
My last picture comes from Gene Coulon Park. I photograph the sailboats of the Renton Sailing Club nearly every time I visit, as I did this morning under foggy skies. I used a manual setting for the picture and like the dreamy look I got.
There you have it! Things People Drive.
