In the second photo (night time shot), I wonder if anyone here can identify a car? In the foreground on the right, it is the tenth car. Some might see it as the ninth car but, you can see the brass headlights of another car peeking out. Car ten has a nicely shaped roof with a port hole on the side. Looks like a fancy car. I bet someone knows what it is.

Dave,
Great pics, thank you for posting. I like really like the night photo. I'm not good at identifying other makes, so I'll wait to see how others I.D. The cars.

Rob, I agree. That photo is pretty clear for a night shot. You can just picture yourself hanging out there on a perfect summer night, much like it is most places right now.

That night shot IS fascinating! It was a slow film, long exposure. The headlamps of a car backed out from a parking space, and then drove completely out of the scene in the duration of the exposure. There are several other shadows that barely show from people moving in the photo. Near one car, are light streaks that may have been from a flashlight. Interestingly (at least to me), is that particular car has poor definition in the photo of its roof line. My guess would be that the person got out of the car, shaking it, and then walked around the back of the car. Or perhaps he walked around the back of the car first with the flashlight and then got into the car? Near that, a momentary blank in one headlamp streak appears to have been a shadow, maybe a pedestrian blocking the lamp as the car drove by. Maybe the fellow from the other car, but with the flashlight turned off, or facing the other direction. The sharpness and angles of the shadow indicate it was not a loose wire blinking the lamp.
Sorry, I cannot identify the car with the small window. Although a friend of mine does have a Pierce Arrow with similar windows in it. Just not enough detail in this photo of the front of the car (if I am looking at the right car, I do see two cars with interesting small side windows).
Six really great pictures! A few I am fairly sure I have seen before. But they are always worth another look.
Thank you Dave W.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
