It’s been a while since my last post but the passion for photography never holds you in one place for long which is awesome. Unfortunately I always seem to fall behind with my photo editing and writing about all the places I’ve been and the gear I used while being out and about but I can’t help it.
I was mentioning in my previous post the Heritage Park in Calgary as being one of the best places for relaxing and/or taking great pictures of old things Canadian. I like to go for a visit at least once a year and I spent half of my time inside the Gasoline Alley, a humongous collection of vintage cars donated by Ron Carey, a great philantropist, the founder of oilfield manufacturing company J&L Supply. Now, I don’t have anything in common with Ron or his company but the work his team does on those old cars is simply amazing and they also have another place where you can visit at Irricana’s Pioneer Acres where most of their restauration work is done and he seems to have a huge collection of trucks as well. I haven’t been there yet but as soon as I visit the place I will post some pictures.
Unfortunately, I do not remember all the names of these beauties but who cares right? The only problem is that, no matter how many pictures you take, you don’t do enough justice to the work and love that was put into bringing these cars back to life.
All pictures were taken with my old Canon 7D and a Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art Lens handlheld of course because they don’t really let you bring a tripod inside. Maybe a monopod if you are lucky but I think the end result was just fine. Shot in RAW and edited in LR and PS.
