Vintage Trailer…

I took this photo of an Airstream trailer last spring. I'd forgotten about my Airstream series of photos until I was sorting through the files on my hard drive today. What caught my eye about this particular Airstream was the bicycle parked behind the trailer. For more about the Airstream photo, expand the post.

Another file I found while sorting was a note to myself about a website I wanted to share with blog readers. Naturally, I wrote it last summer and never got around to sharing it, until now! The website, http://thehomebased.com/?p=63, shows photographers giving their all to get the shot. Enjoy!

The photo of the airstream was taken at Travelers Rest, the RV resort we have been staying in for the past several winters. The resort was originally and Airstream only park, and there are still a fair number of Airstream trailers in the park. They have a unique quality that makes them standout from the typical, run-of-the-mill travel trailer.

I followed my usual Lightroom/Photoshop/Lightroom workflow, with one exception. In Lightroom I changed a few settings to add an aged effect to the photograph.


  1. This photo should be in the archives of the Airstream website. Is there anyplace you can send it?

  2. I think the Airstream people have plenty of photos, but thanks for the compliment!
