For those two or three people on the planet who may actually read this post, I am under contract by a publishing company called CarTech. CarTech publishes books on how to build say a small block Chevy or Ford. Currently I am working on producing a book all about rusted old pick up trucks found lying in fields and barns across America. The book will be a hardbound “coffee table” type photography book; it should be available for sale at any book store some time in early 2011.
It’s easy to imagine that traveling around the country looking for vehicles hiding in the brush and in barns is quite an adventure, and it is. On my travels, avoiding the large cross country interstate highways is my biggest goal. Rather taking sideways and byways has led me to some amazing sights in our country. Most of which I try to capture with my lens in search of trucks. Its truly about the journey rather than the destination.
As July melts away into August, I wanted to show a few of the out takes and other shots I have been fortunate enough to see. Hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I did finding them. Stay tuned for further travelogue updates.
So, this is my first attempt at keeping a blog. Ok, ok, I take that back, when I worked for those corporate magazine guys we (editors) were told our job depended on whether we blogged everyday and if we blogged about the things they (the corporation) told us we had to write about such as advertisers products and how great said products were.
So really this is my second attempt at keeping a blog. Ugh! Doesn't the word blog just make you cringe? To me a blog sounds like something that happens to you after eating from a taco wagon on the wrong side of town. Trust me, you eat from one of those bad boys and you'll be blogging all night!
So what's the whole point of me even keep a blog? I guess it all depends on the day or hour that you ask me that question (assuming you asked a question at all). Im liable to give three different answer on two different days.I guess the whole point to this is to keep those of you reading this updated on my photography. Most of it will be automotive or motor-sports related, but not entirely, it would bore me to tears to stick to just one subject exclusively.
