Pontiac Chiefton, 1953

I’m not a car person but I do appreciate an old car that hasn’t been restored. The rust, dents, torn upholstery and broken glass show the long history and get me thinking about the day the car was brand new and the owner cherished it. Did the entire family jump in for their first ride, all feeling bigger than life, did the owner wash and wax it regularly. This car lives outside Hagerstown, Maryland and looks pretty good after 56 years in the elements.

Moonrise over the Bay

A light breeze over the Bay
Thin clouds embrace the moon
Water settles in for the night
Another summer comes to a close
