1984

1947 Chevy

Cripple Creek, CO

This is truly a somewhat vintage shot taken in 1984 with my first serious camera, my then 7 year old Nikon FM. I scanned it in the early 2000's and did a very rudimentary partial color version of it : https://pbase.com/dlgphoto/image/89543246 which I posted more than 10 years ago. This is a revised version that is a little better, hopefully. In 1991, casino gambling was legalized in Cripple Creek and a lot has changed. Where this car stood is now a parking garage for the casinos.


Best viewed at original size.

It is wonderful to have old photos from the past for comparison with the present, or just for their own sakes! This is a beauty, so much character inherent in the old cars and building. I know I would infinitely prefer this to something flash! V

It has a slightly worn,gritty feel to it that is perfect. I like your thoughtful handling of the background. It adds so much here."Big Vote"
