This is the town of Rockaway Beach, Oregon looking north on U.S. Hwy. 101.
The quaint old buildings still border this long stretch of main road
and are a reflection of a trendy destination in the fifties.
I stood near the soft drifts of sand that were swept against the parking strip
and took dozens of pictures just waiting for the right vehicles to come a long.
Back at my studio when it came time to develop and stage my composition,
I decided the VW bus was perfect. I changed the color from green to red
and put myself in the driver’s seat. I had a van exactly like this in the early seventies.
Oh how liberating it is to have an artistic license!
