Signs of the 70's
My neighbor owns this 1978 Volkswagen T2 bus and plans to fully restore it as a beach car. These vans are completely woven into the mythos of the 1970's.
Getting from Point A to Point B is something that most of us do so frequently that we barely give it a second thought. Since we're all on a collective journey here at 52Frames, we thought why not get a Framer's point of view on things that get us from here to there. We're not just talking trains, planes and automobiles this week: everything's fair game including wagons, strollers/prams, pogo sticks, paragliders, unicycles, Zorb balls, horseys and even a Star Trek transporter if you have access to one. Show us what's special about that old car someone you know restored by hand, or maybe what you feel when you're able to race around in your ATV on the dunes. Perhaps you're an avid sailor and can show us peace and tranquility on a boat or how it takes all your skill and a bit of luck to navigate the rapids in your kayak. For the less adventurous among us, tell us what you like or what irks you about your daily commute in that bus. Or perhaps you keep it more local and want to show us your shoes, walking stick, or wheelchair! There are stories waiting to be told everywhere. You can choose to shoot something at rest or when it's moving, so remember to adjust your shutter speed and other settings appropriately to get the image you want. Transportation is an intrinsic aspect of all our lives that isn't often given its due - let's try and bring it to the forefront this week.
