I moved into a new neighborhood in 2015 and in order to get to know the area, I spent a lot of time walking around. One thing I noticed was that there were a ton of old cars.
Well, you know me. I’ve been a photographer for ever. So I started photographing the old cars and talking to the people who own them.
Someone told me about this newfangled thing called Instagram, so I thought I’d give it a try.
And now here I am. I still haven’t run out of cars to shoot. And I’ve got more than 2,500 followers.
A couple of years ago, someone suggested I make a calendar. People liked it, so I did it again. Now I’ve got three going –– Old Cars of Portland, Old Mustangs of Portland, and Old Beetles of Portland. This year I may add Old Ramblers, Old Pickups, Old Chevys, and Old Fords.
As a matter of fact, I’ve shot more than 500 old cars in Portland. I might do a Car A Day calendar. Or maybe a book.
Realtor by day, photographer by — um — also day. (If I can make a beat-up old car look good, imagine what I can do for your house.)
