Dream Cars

Took a short trip to Atlanta this weekend with my menfolk, and stopped at the High Museum of Art to visit its Dream Cars exhibit. More than two dozen concept cars, dating from 1934 to 2010, were on display. Here are a few of my favorites. (The exhibit has been extended through Sept. 14.)

I believe all good fiction includes an element of truth, and all good photography includes an element of fantasy. In this journal I hope to give voice to the stories swirling around in my head, and to capture the images I see through my camera’s lens.

    1. My son is a gear head, loves all kinds of cars. This trip was part of his birthday present. With some of these cars dating back to the 30s, 40s, and 50s, they would be categorized as “Classic.” They were concept cars, so weren’t mass produced.


  1. Wow, those are really snazzy cars, definitely not the kind you would ever want to put on the road in Mumbai where I’m living for four months. Spending half of the past two years in India makes me NEVER complain about traffic on CA freeways.

    My post is on the gates of the residence of the president of India.
