this is America

"Awww-dammit!"

This place is a veritable gold mine of nice cars. They are upholsterers. They are just about the last step in restoration. I could pass this and shoot every time I come by. I know this. I knew this when I came up around the corner. I wasn't going to look, but I did. I wasn't going to stop to shoot a nice car. A nice car is a nice car is a nice car. But this, this isn't a nice car photo. This had be here, this one time of course, when I reeeaaallly wanted to shoot something else, just waiting for me. Baiting me with bright primary colors against a flat lit environment. It's obvious visual appeal like a deep sea lantern fish. And so I could only say aloud one thing.
