A Forgotten Icon

I think just about anyone over 50 will recognize the picture below as being the front end of a 1950s Studebaker.  Jet planes had just been invented and Studebaker wanted to mimic one with their car. It might not have been an icon in its day but is becoming one now.

Lady of the Palms

I took this picture a few months ago while visiting a conservatory in Rockford Illinois. She and a few of her friends were peeking out of the palms during my visit.  She was a little shy and somewhat of a recluse but we got along just fine…
