Photo a Day Challenge

Every Day Sight . . .

An every day sight . . . from 1908 through 1927:  A nickel Coke and the tail end of a “Tin Lizzie” as seen by pedestrians, large front wheeled bicycles and buggies powered by straw burners.  Photographed at the History Museum at the Castle.

  5. I like that you’ve caught enough of the car to add to the story but didn’t diminish the sign by including the entire car.

    Too bad Coke doesn’t still cost a nickel and cars don’t still have interesting shapes. Nice composition.

    Back in time. The reflection in the window is also real interesting; blue sky above buildings, or am I seeing an illusion?

  10. The curvy back end of tin lizzy is an excellent lead in to the coke sign. Some people would pay more to own the sign than the car.

    Cake’s no longer a nickel, but the colors and the logo are still iconic.

  12. The pop of the “pop” sign and the lovely curve of the vintage car make for a great photo.

  13. Great shot. Love everything about it. Great processing. Very “Nostalgic Looking”

  14. It can be hard to get good museum shots because the various exhibits often sort of overlap or crowd each other. You’ve done a wonderful job of isolating the subjects of interest and not including any superfluous stuff. Very, very nice…

  15. Wonderfully composed! Great job of taking the images of the different exhibits!

  16. Love the idea for the theme. Well shot too… did you try one in Black and White, or in sepia tones to see if it would look aged too?

  17. Great shot — could have been an ad for coke
