I am guessing on the year. Please feel free to comment with the correct year if this is not a 1956. It is a Cadillac & it is beautiful. It sits in front of the iconic Paramount Theatre & Convention Hall in Asbury Park.
I could have shot this Cadillac all day. Besides my reflection, you can also see Asbury Park’s Paramount Theatre / Convention Hall.
Oh, how I miss chrome.
A simpler black & white might have worked better. Here is a reflection of Asbury Park’s Paramount Convention Hall in the window of a mid 50’s 56? Cadillac limo.
Tiger took a nap on my lap when I tried to take his photo.
I finally figured out how to get a clean focus on the images from MkIII. Unfortunately, this coincides with my new obsession with multiple exposures & HDR. Too bad I can’t do both at the same time.
Here is a triple exposure with some extra saturation & vibrance courtesy of Lightroom4 (version whichever one just took an hour to download & install).
You cannot see it so well but I am wearing Superman underwear with a Batman shirt. Rebel.
The motel was not scary when I took this. It became scary the next night when a police officer pulled us over to tell us about the suspicious activity in our motel. He would not specify what kind of activity nor he would say whether we were safe. We later saw him patrolling the grounds on foot. We locked the doors & din’t leave again until the sun was up.
You may ask why, but I ask why the Hell not? No one is looking so I might as well.

The best part about his awful partial desaturation is that I didn’t even try to make the line straight.
