A Collection of My Photographs…

The Old Future

 I first heard the expression ‘the old future’ when my daughter was about 14 years old.  We were driving, and as we approached an intersection, we were presented with a splendid view of a nice old Airstream trailer cruising by.  “Isn’t that a cool thing?” I said.  “Yeah,” she agreed, “It looks like the old future.” Continue reading
