Going Orange in Gruene

Glory Days, originally uploaded by Snakelover61.

The above photo was my entry in a photo contest in which the theme was "Orange." While it didn't win, it received some very nice accolades.The subject is a '55 Chevy parked outside the historic Gruene Mansion. Like the photo in the previous blog, this one was taken on our recent excursion celebrating Mindy's birthday. That sure was a fun trip!

See how big that steering wheel is? I can tell you for a fact: it sure gets in the way when you're making out! Ah, back in the day. His name was Steve.

Thanks for the stroll. Nice picture.

Can I also say nice play on words in the title?

I can't?

What David didn't mention is that the car was parked in a space reserved for Elvis. I hid behind a bush for hours waiting for the King, but, I never saw him.

Doesn't David have a knack for photography? Love this picture! ~Mindy

I came on over from Margo's Junkin' Journal blog after I learned that you had photos in the calendar. I love this photo! I also love the junking photos in your "Antique Photographer" post. Thanks for sharing your talent with us!
