Comin’ Over The Hill

It was foggy on my morning commute. My eye was drawn to the slightly mysterious scene. Just as I stopped the car to capture the image, a car topped the hill.

Contemplating the Chaos

A lone surfer stands alone at the edge of chaos on this cool, snowy morning in early November on Lake Superior’s north shore.

More Lake Superior surfing shots and my other photography can be found on my website and my blog.

Buggin’ Out

Black And White Photography, Joseph, Mobile Photography, Photography

For the past 2 months I have been going for 1 to 2 mile morning walks to get in a little exercise and also to clear my head. This morning while walking through my neighborhood I came across this VW Super Beetle. From the looks of the bumpers I believe this is a 1973 (which was the first year 5 mph bumpers were required). This Beetle brings back so many fond memories of my youth because in 1973 I purchased my first new car which was ironically a 1973 VW Super Beetle. For those of you that are not VW Beetle fans the Super Beetle featured a curved windshield, redesigned dashboard and a blower motor to control the heat output (very high end for a Beetle). Regular Beetle’s featured a flat windshield and the more conventional convection heating system. Both systems were still controlled by 2 levers in between the front seats but there was much less chance of your breath fogging up the front windshield on hot humid summer days and cold winter mornings. Photo was taken with my iPhone 12 Pro Max.
