See my black car Jaguar FType make it blue

 Many photographers that I meet and chat to ,say they need a studio I agree,
 but also I am creating a concept called parking lot art not in a studio anyone can do this,
 just you and your camera,
 this one is about a 2018 all black Jaguar F type I call it , ( see my black car colour me blue ),by using the reflection of the sky to change the colour of the car which is all black ,
I also drive a older Jaguar which can be seen reflected in the window of this Jaguar

Inspired by Edward Weston The pepper

So many photographers have influenced the world I work in, many are gone but there work lives on for us all to be inspired ,

OC Orange County Fair pictures 2017 Costa Mesa CA by Photographer Phillip Ritchie

A BIG thank you to all those that helped me at OC Fair to give me the time and space to look at the fair  from my point of view ,

My thoughts came from the Title of the  song by Pete Seeger  (where have all the flowers gone ) sung by Marlene Dietrich

my thoughts  (where have all the people gone)  so as I wondered around the fair ,there was no sound, so quiet ,empty streets such a strange feeling ,so here is a selection of some of the pictures ,

thanks again OC Fair people
