Now where's the flux capacitor......?

Those of you who have met me will know that I am a child of the 80's. The posters on my wall were mainly of Spandau Ballet (I still have a thing for Tony Hadley if the truth be known, but that's another story), my favourite sweets were Spangles, why they renamed Marathons to Snickers we will never know and the only Corona that was talked about was brightly coloured pop - heaven alone knows what they put in there to make them so vivid.

Where is this leading you are probably asking, what's this to do with art - well in theory nothing but I also have an interest in cars and some cars are works of art in their own right. When I was asked to help with a car photoshoot - this is not an unusual request - I naturally said yes and turned up at the allotted time and place.

Imagine my excitement when the car that came out of the garage was a DeLorean - did I mention that one of my favorite films is Back to the Future? The other is Ghostbusters so if I ever get to photograph a 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor, more commonly known as the Ectomobile, you can be sure I'll let you know about it. But back to the DeLorean, I have to photograph all the details, things like lights, badges, decals etc but try as I might I couldn't find the flux capacitor and trust me I looked everywhere, I guess the first owners didn't tick that box on the options list. All was not lost, to make up for the disappointment I was handed the keys and told to put her back in the garage, as I lifted the gullwing door and clambered in I wondered just how much run up I needed to get to 88mph........
