Remember Uncle Frank’s ’53 Chevy?

Do you remember seeing Uncle Frank’s Chevrolet (1953) when he was just putting the engine in?

Here’s what it looks like now after all the work  (love) he has put into it!  Shot from the passenger window- the interior.

Unretouched, But Who’d Believe It?

Sunlight in January.  Blue sky.  Although predictions for the tonight and morning are snowfall, we are not convinced.  Everything has been mild and though some wet, it has felt almost like Spring.

I caught the sunlight on this  garage as I pulled out of the school parking lot and it was just aglow with the sun.  It was a one shot chance from the car window.  I know it looks like I increased the saturation on the red.  But I didn’t. This is how it looked.

It looked like a jewel to me.

Not sure of the fate of this structure.  I did find a nice photo that someone took a year ago. This is just mine as I waited at the red light, taken with the iPhone.

What’s in a Garage? (2 views)

New homes in the burbs might have a 3-car. Many city houses don’t have one! Saw this 1-car garage while stopped at a red light on Steuben Street.  No automatic garage door opener on this one.  My garage doors fold, glass panes at the top of each panel from the late 1920’s when it was built, and a tin ceiling! Garages-  attached, detached,  living quarters above.  The bus garages taken from the parking lot at the gym by Bakery Square.  “Things you find in a garage”, a good category for a game show. Mine is full of sleds, garbage cans, pruning shears, a stack of shingles, window washer fluid and old golf clubs. Time for a garage sale!
