I took some pics of the Shelby downtown today. I didn't wait for the best lighting or us a fancy camera, but rather just drove around and found some kind of cool backdrops to park in front of.

Thought you guys might enjoy seeing the pics. The link should take you to my fotki album and it is already configured to "roll" through the photos using the up/down arrow keys. If you should decide you want to save a pic, click on it and then click on the little file tray/arrow icon up above the photo to get the full size photo (much more detailed than the photos seen on the roll. You can just right click on the larger photo and save it then.

Happy Motoring!

Bob

The old faded Coke wall is on the backside of a vintage building. At one time a Yamaha motorcycle sign (Action Motorsports) had been painted over the top of the cola logo.

The fresh Coke sign is on another vintage building downtown. I believe it is a freshening of an original signage.

The Standard station is an original restored station complete with tools, desks, parts, oil cans and vintage cars in the bays.

The warped bricks and masked actors are painted on the back of a building in an alley behind the Civic Theatre.

The graffiti is on the alley side of a major liquor store.

Thanks guys! It was a fun day running around looking for neat back drops in my town. I wasn't concerned with lighting or anything, just looking for a cool place to shoot with a simple camera!
