In Ottawa, we have an area we call Hogs Back, no, sorry I don’t know why, it has just always been called that. On one side of the roadway, the water rushes, tumbles and crashes over rocks, the view and the sounds can be very exhilarating. Yet the park land around it, is tranquil, peaceful and a joy to experience.
I found this beauty parked just sitting there while driving down the highway. Obviously I couldn’t just drive by, I wanted a closer look. Usually when one is drawn to something, there is a reason, for it.
The owner was not around, I did enquire, so I couldn’t get a story on this particular car, but I did discover that this car and others that I will use over the while, belong, or are in the charge of a company called The Sports Car Factory (restoration and fabrication) how cool is that. Their address and coordinates will be found at the end of this blog.
Old cars/trucks tell a story. I love finding one, the workmanship, the detail, the lines. they aren’t merely functional, often the car will have its very own story to tell.
What we see, is not always the full story, our eyes focus and see what is before them, we will look around us, and then settle on the view that is most pleasing to us. When I visit Hogs Back, I tend to walk over to the water, I like to gaze down at the swirling mass of water that is travelling at its own pace, going along with the pull of nature, to wherever it will lead. I can’t see beyond the upper layers of cascading foam and liquid motion. But I know it is there, under the water that I see, lies another world, it is there even though I cannot see it.
The same applies to the cars. In whatever state I find them, I know that their sum total is only part of what is there. So why as a human do I often find myself accepting what appears obvious, but in reality is only 1/2 a story, or one of many possibilities.
There you are, Saturday in part, I have so much to assimilate and discover… the lens captures one second of the day, the rest will make its way to the top, sometime, somewhere along the way.
It was a great day
it made room for today
