Gerry & Syl’s 1932 Chevrolet Coupe. I don’t know much about cars, but I know that’s one purdy car.

While taking photos of babies eating daffodils (oh, I’m sure those’ll end up here soon), I noticed this purdy car parking nearby, and its owners stepping out and surveying it.

Specifically, they were ensuring that they’d parked the car in front of a suitable background for a photo. Seeing that this was Beacon Hill Park, most anywhere’s a great spot, and they’d picked a dandy.

The gentleman whipped out his mobile phone and proceeded to take shot after shot of their cool car.

Now, as I’ve said before, I ain’t God’s gift to this photo stuff, and I know the equipment doesn’t make the photographer, but I thought I’d offer to take a shot of their car with something possibly a little more robust than a mobile.

They graciously accepted, and were pleased as punch when I sent them the shot. The goal of the photo? Not to marvel at their purdy car, no. To send it to their friends in Chicago, digging out from freak snowstorms.
