  1. Love the fender … my neighbor restores his own vintage cars. He has 3 that are to die for. The car shows here are great.
    Anyway, your photo’s are super … so …. what else is new? I”ve noticed that quite a few of us photogs love the color purple. We are a fabulous bunch.

    1. Thank you and yes we are aren’t we. We are just a bunch of purple loving, artsy fartsy, FAB – U – LOUS people πŸ˜€

      Oddly enough, even though it is my favorite color, I’ve never worn anything purple, and probably never would. πŸ˜‰

    1. I would love to find out! The owners basically gave me free reign to clime all over and around it to get a few photos, I wonder if they’d let me take it down the 1/4 mile one time πŸ˜‰

  2. These are lovely Jeffo πŸ™‚ The fender pic is the best to me :D. I can’t believe that someone gave you a poor rating (the world is full of weirdos); I did my best to increase your average πŸ˜‰

    1. Thanks Paula, I think the car is my favorite this week too. πŸ™‚

      I hadn’t even noticed about a poor rating. Life’s too short to worry about pleasing everyone. Some will like what I share, some won’t, that’s the way it goes.

      1. Oh, you mean the stars, I don’t see that as a poor rating at all. If everyone gave me 5 stars all the time I’d start to think they were just humoring me. Like I said above, not everything I post is going to appeal to everyone. I’m happy with that πŸ˜€ The fact anyone takes the time to read and look is good enough for me. I am an acquired taste you know.


        1. You are not an acquired taste … you are totally wrong there… and stars on this blog should be extended to 10, to make a fair distinction between yours and others’ blogs.

      2. No, I am sure they are just petty little souls… to envious, too stupid, to limitted… and should be banned from WP. When I buy the site I will make sure they are gone forever!!!

          1. If anything I am NOT nice, and you should have learned that by now :P, but there are people that bring out niceness in me (such as a certain Mr Sweet) and many others that reduce me to a raging vampire…..

    1. Thanks Nate. Next time your around maybe we can hit Portsmouth for some night photography, and a beer or three πŸ˜‰ No shortage of places in P-Town to get a good brew. πŸ˜€

    1. Thanks Brandon. I love the pit area at New England Dragway! I spend way more time in the pits than actually watching the races. The thing I love about drag cars is that they often have some of the most beautifully done paintwork.

  3. Purple is the color most favored by artists. No wonder… Like the romantic and delicate purple in the second image, and LOVE the rich and bright purple in the last one!

    1. Thank you Lucy! I keep hearing that about purple, no big surprise it’s always been my favorite color, since I just about lived in the art rooms in school πŸ™‚

  4. I feel it’s a balanced mix of shots here – if the first is a power shot, the second one is about the simple tender beauty, while the last one depicts serenity!

    1. Thank you, and I think you’re right. I should start paying more attention to the order I post them. I should finish off with the “money shot,” not lead with it.
