    That's great.

    When I was a student, I found myself thinking like that (but without any hint of irony) ... noticing that I liked photographing old cars and houses more than new ones. I was musing about this to the guy who was my mentor at the time, wondering what profound concept I'd stumbled onto, and he said, "sounds like nostalgia to me!."

    Shut me up right away.

    Do they deliver?

    For monochrome landscape shooters, I think a '67 Pontiac wagon in Hernandez, NM would be a shore thing, as would a Checker Marathon atop Half Dome or a Buick Roadmaster at low tide, Point Lobos. Arbus fans could order up twin Nash Ramblers or a brace of Fiat Topolinos (Topolini?) or for economy, maybe a single Caddy with twin fins!
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    They could expand into all kinds of set pieces. If they stockpiled new-old stock film and paper, they could become a one-stop LF photo superstore.

    Some other items I'd like them to offer:
    -barn doors
    -cala lillies
    -dunes (these could be delivered by dump truck)
    -did i mention barn doors?

    these are actually from an earlier era. what are some more shore things? diners? neon signs?

    I guess I was an "aspiring New Color photographer" in the early 1980's, although I didn't consider myself one (not having mapped out my future career as a fine-art photographer by getting an MFA). But my pictures from back then are approaching Shore-status, but only if you look closely at the cars in them...
