The Making of Mustang Dream – - – Canon G11 Compact Camera – Wide-Angle Lens 6mm – I shoot RAW – Orton – I use PhotoShop for layer-a-tude – I use Photomatix Pro to polish up me HDR ( 153 hours saved thus far) – and I had a church-choir holding 1400 of those birthday candles that can’t be blown out for additional high lighting ~:0)
The Mustang Dream – - – Wow! Talk about a blast from the past! This Mustang Dream has dredged up some repressed memories. Yeh – memories of an old TV show – I Dream of Jeannie. Premise was a 2000 year-old Genie played by the delightful Barbara Eden was found… Do U really want to hear about this part? – Ha! Let’s move on then. ~:0)
Anyway – it’s not a dream about some sports team either – Dream Team – I think U call them. No! Mustang Dream is all about the American Dream. That’s right! Mustang Dream uses a good looking convertible to flesh out a place in the collective unconscious. We’re all dreamers! Well we’re dreamers if we’re healthy – if U know what I mean. But we all have dreams and ambitions – or we should. Never Give Up as Churchill said back in the day. (U know I just thought that those with modern day educations may not be following this line of thought. But Who Cares!?! ~:0)
Anyway what with the drought up here in the Texas Hill Country and other parts of the neck of the nape – every little storm that pops up is a reason to get out and make pictures. Mustang Dream is that for which we hope. Nice car – Nice home – Nice Friends all under a massive pile of hundred Dollar bills. Thing about dreams is U gotta believe. Yeah!!
This photograph puts me in mind of school proms and graduation gifts. I tell U – those kind of gifts have escalated from a firm handshake to dreaming a new Mustang Dream over the yonks. Is it any wonder cowgirls up in ranch-country and even back home have gone crazy wild. Personally I’d just as soon have some heavy rain for about a month to get the lakes back up. Lake view property out our way has become meadow view as the impound heads South – Ha!
I’ve owned a few convertibles over yonks and I learned that if the rain’s – not too heavy – and U drive just the right speed – U Don’t Get Wet! I’m talking with the top down U lot! How very cool is that? I’m a wealth of disjointed information round the old club house. Nice stormy sky in this Mustang Dream bit-o-wall-art. I like to think of my work as Hot Rod Fine Art! Personally I got a print of this one in the game room where it can be seen when breaking at a game of the old pocket billiards – as they used to say at the Regatta. Distracts visitors – Ha! When it quits working to distract me opponents I’ll get something else nice up in that spot. Ol’what’shername calls it cheating. I calls it gamesmanship – U ought to try it! ~:0) VivaChas!
