My name is Art Smith and I am a retired business owner living here in Austin Texas.
I sold my Electronics business back in 2002 to spend more time with my family and to pursue my hobbies.
My two absolute favorite hobbies are Classic Cars and Photography… naturally, a LOT of my pictures are of Classic Cars and Automotive related stuff.
I am an amateur photographer still trying to learn how to take a decent picture.



A wonderful photographer,  Russ from Dervish Images ( ) has nominated me for a One Lovely Blog Award !
I am deeply honored that a photographer and artist as good as Russ would like my work enough to nominated me…….. Thank you Russ !

   The Rules Are:

1) Thank the person that nominated you — and link back to their blog

2) List seven random things about yourself

3) Nominate fifteen other blogs

4) Notify the other nominees

5) Put the Award Logo on your blog

So here we go……………

1) Thank you again Russ from Dervish Images

I am married with two grown children and one granddaughter

I love dogs

I love being around the water (coast, lakes, rivers, etc)

In retirement, I have MORE friends now than I ever had when I was working – guess I just have more time now

I enjoy music a LOT !

I plan to take my wife on a surprise trip to Italy (hope she doesn’t see this)

My Granddaughter makes me happy when I am around her

    Wonderful photos! Thanks for visiting and liking my story, though I’m sure it’s the classic trucks you enjoyed most. One of your photos in the flea market gallery — two clocks — caught my eye. Would you mind if I pinned it on my Pinterest “Writing Prompt” board? I would link it right back to your blog, and I’d let you know if I ever wrote a short story from it.
