177 – Metallic

I have ALWAYS wanted a car painted in mega-metallic like this…you know, the kind of paint they use on carnival rides.  I’ve never seen one though, until now.  It’s for sale, too…

Here’s how this image began life…the car was parked under a tree and it had been drizzling.  This car was DIRTY and you really couldn’t tell much about the paint before Topaz…

37 – Car Parts

We tooled around this cool antique mining exhibit the other day.  I haven’t been since I was a kid and hubby had never been…it hasn’t changed much.  The owner is basically a hoarder with a gimmick, and charges admission to see his junk.  Genius?  I think so!  When I see a busted old vehicle like this with paint in 100 colors, I can’t help but do that cartoony HDR effect to it, because it looks bad-ass.

If you get the chance, go check this place out.  It’s called the Gold King Mine & Ghost Town and it’s right outside of Jerome, AZ.  Stop & talk to Don when you go.  He has led an amazing life and tells the best stories; he’s also extremely knowledgeable.  Plus, it’s next to dirt cheap to get in!
