Classic American Cars abounded on Main Street in the tourist town of Seaside, located on the North Oregon Coast for this annual summertime event. My photograph of 1940s Hollywood movie star, Hedy Lamarr, caught my eye with its noirish window lighting as we strolled west towards the famous turnaround which ends with a fabulous view of the beach. She invited me in, so to speak for a double take on this dreamy star's legacy replete with a pair of gloves and an "adorable" stuffed poodle. I liked her better as Delilah in Cecil B. DeMille's Samson and Delilah, but this staged setup was the perfect sendoff for a walk through nostalgia on a lovely summer afternoon.
I made this image made utilizing a Nikon F4 film camera. The detail is enhanced by my use of an ultra sharp 15mm ultra wide angle Nikkor lens. The original negatives have been kept in dark storage and are in pristine condition.
