So - I was on South Lamar and 6th street walking into *the* record store in Austin - Waterloo Records. and I saw this VW bus come pulling up. Out walks a for real, old school, 78704, hippie chic. She looked like she walked straight outta Haight Ashbury or Lester's farm in Woodstock. I chatted her up a bit and asked her if she minded if I took a few shots of her Wagon. She was totally amused at the thought, shrugged and walked in to Waterloo to grab some vinyl.
Right about the same time as I took this shot I saw a few OOB type shots for the first time and decided that this V-Dub was a good test subject. It was old school (Black and White) but it was jumping into the present (color). I used the Fractalius software to get some of this look too.
I really like the way it came out and I wish I had got her name and some contact info from her so I could send her a copy.
She was/is? the real deal and a cool old soul.
