The 1950 Cadillac Goddess

Yesterday, I revisited my new friend Mike Hinson, the proprietor of the Red Cross Store – an antique everything salvage business.  His store was featured on American Pickers about 10 years ago and is a popular location for photography club field trips.  This was my third visit; my last visit featured the “Pop Art” post on 12/31.  I look forward to posting more compositions from this great location.

In 1933, Cadillac introduced the distinctive and elegant “Goddess” hood ornament.  By the late 40’s, the design became more streamlined and futuristic.  I used my Tamron 15mm – 30mm to capture these dramatic wide-angle compositions of the hood ornament and emblem of Mike’s 1950 Cadillac Series 62.

    1. Thanks! Mike is the owner, really cool, laid back guy. He told me he is usually there on Sundays from 2:00 -5:00 pm. He said to call a few days ahead of time if your driving some distance, to make sure he’s doesn’t have to be away on Sunday afternoon.
