When was the last time that a Nash was ever produced? Well, I’ll tell you. 1957. This was as part of American Motors. Prior to that it was made by Nash-Kelvinator from 1938 to 1954. This could explain some of the shapes since Kelvinator made washing machines and refrigerators. Nash did pioneer some concepts that […]
Budville barely exists today. It sits on the edge of Indian land in central New Mexico. Obviously, you can easily see from the gas pump in the right side of the frame, when this gas station thrived. It’s a ghost of a different type then I’ve been discussing in my last few posts. It’s located […]

But, a more interesting result was that the background was also very mottled with light brown areas. It […]
Sometimes, you just have to make a change. Sometimes a picture made at a state fair does not have conform to any kind of expected norm…
Some of the vendors who sell food and drink are sponsored by much bigger companies. This is a beverage trailer. Just guess who sponsors them. Very little post production done to this image. It’s warmth and glow comes from the real deal… dusky sunlight.
