Pictures today! For Father’s Day (a belated happy one to all the dads out there!) I went with my parents to the Volo Auto Museum. About an hour outside of Chicago, it’s packed with all kinds of cars, from early ones to classics to props from movies. There’s also an antiques mall, with one building that is said to be haunted.
If you’re in the market for a classic car, there are rooms of them, gorgeously restored, for sale.
I went with my trusty SLR, and armed with a new small point-and-shoot I got because it can take underwater pictures.
I’ll need that for a trip I’ll be taking, but we’ll chat about that another day.
A blast was had with the point-and-shoot, as it offers a range of filters. It’s like on-board Photoshop. It has its limitations — as far as that type of camera goes, it wasn’t a really expensive one, and I’m not completely thrilled with the sharpness in the lighting conditions, but cars were the perfect subject matter to test some of the more playful features.
So here are the pictures from what I will call my little camera. (it is VERY little). And off we go!
And from my “real” camera:
