Photo Challenge – Lens-Artists: Planes, Trains and Automobiles and the Places They Take Us

This week John has given us a challenge involving modes of transportation and the places they take us.

I found this 1931 Ford Model A at a local festival a couple of years ago. It was being displayed by the son of the original owner.

Anyone for a guided tour of Charleston?

Bikes are for rent to get around the campus of the Medical University of South Carolina and the College of Charleston.

It’s a steep trip on the Incline on the way up and down Lookout Mountain in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Hot air balloon rides were available at a festival outside Ravenell, South Carolina. The lines were very long so we didn’t wait around.

Windsurfing isn’t a typical way to get around but it looks like a cool way to spend a day at the beach.

My grandson is a huge fan of anything with wheels. I designed and made this blanket for him for Christmas and it’s the only blanket he’ll sleep with now. It’s available for sale at

Regular Random – Five Minutes with a 1931 Model A

Here are the rules for this challenge –

Choose a subject or a scene and spend five minutes photographing it using different lighting and angles without interfering with the subject.  Use the tags “regular random” and “five minutes”.

While visiting mom this weekend I was able to take a walk through the Farmers Market held every Saturday.  I have lots of photos to share but this post features a 1931 Ford Model A owned by one of the vendors.

Bob says his father wanted a Model A when they were first manufactured but it wasn’t until 1934 that he purchased one.  He and his wife were traveling to the mountains of North Carolina for apples and saw the car on the side of the road with a “for sale” sign.  His father bought it and the car passed to Bob in 1969.  It’s driven regularly and the top speed is 55MPH.  

Wouldn’t you love to take a spin in it?
