You need to resize it. When I click on it it's so huge I can't really see the composition of the picture.

Thanks. It was taken right out of my camera. Forgot to reduce it for here. Use to sending full size photos for magazine usage. Drew

Drew, I was an advertising major at Virginia Commonwealth University 1972-3 . There , I studied the art of developing both Color and Black and white films . we were required to make a Pin hole camera and actually use it . Now while this isn't a copy of Petersons Photographic , its photography and art combined . The photo you shared of the old truck cab in B & W is stunning , well to me it is . Heck I see a grizzled ole cowhand reaching over to open a Lonestar Beer. I can tell he earned every penny he ever fought for too. You can tell the hard life he's encountered by the bullitt holes in the truck . One season of raising Tobacco will teach ya all about what LABOR is all about.

Me, I have actually done a little of both. I worked in an Earl Schieb shop to support my going to college at night . Yes , I actually helped raise some tobacco too. You havent seen what workin in the fields can do to age someone .

Drew , thanks for sharing such an interesting piece . I think you now need to do a model based upon such a truck say a Revell 50 Ford or a A M T 50 Chevrolet . Either will make a fine candidate ! Ed Shaver

Photography is not art.

Photography IS Fine Art.

I can source thousands of photographers after 25 years in the business. I look at vehicles as art....sculpture, innovative engineering, and of course finish. I see a handful of photographers who are artists and not technicians and even in my limited scope, I know there are 1000s more out there.......

Heres a few that get me going...do a search and enjoy!!
