My auto repair shop



This photo is one of the photos sitting on my desktop waiting to be posted. It's a photo of Hampton Tire and Brake in East Quogue. It's the shop I bring the car to for everything. It's great to find a repair shop that you can trust. Bill is a true neighborhood business.
Sometimes, I wait for a oil change and take a walk around the village with my camera. This photo was made on my last visit. I was drawn to the broken neon tires sign and the sky.
Made with the Canon G10 and processed with ACR.

Nice perspective and colours. Great when you can find a mechanic who can be trusted.

I do not know what it is about this picture but I like it. I really think it is the fact that it just says TIRE right there.

The art of photography is mind boggling to me. What simple and unique beauty in the most unexpected places. Thank you for your kind words on my blog, I can't wait to look around more on yours. Have a great weekend!

Communities are built by people like Bill, and it saddens me that a) They seem to be receding in the era of large-scale, big box, franchised/corporate businesses and b) society as a whole doesn't seem to be aware of what's being lost in the process.

Thankfully you do. I see a bright future for folks like Bill in places where the things that matter continue to matter.

And this picture just aches a certain timeless beauty.
