Traveling is a great way for me to experience new sights, and to create images that I would not normally have in my back yard....well except for the image above! As I travel, I keep my camera with me all the time, which sadly I don't always do at home.

In California people drive their classic cars down roads close to the beach, which is what happened here. There was a constant parade of cars that night, since the rain was holding off. They were mostly modern, dull black and silver SUV's, and I was being the not so normal "tourist" photographing the sunset with the cool ocean breeze on my face. Out of the corner of my eye I saw this absolutely, gorgeous 1960's Chevrolet Impala driving by the little cottages where I was staying. My photojournalist brain kicked into gear and I was able to quickly pan 6 images as the car drove by, then I took two images and blended them together to come up with this. I could not have scripted this photograph any better for the car color matched the cottages perfectly. Except for a couple of tweaks, this is exactly what was there! This is truly one of the most beautiful classic cars I've ever photographed, and have NOT seen anything like this cruising Woodward during the Dream Cruise. (Thank you Photoshop and On1 software for the help!)

Looking forward to another "Memorable" Vacation........
