The USA is a young country. We’re babies in the timeline of countries throughout world history. We talk about having a “history,” but more often than not we are happy to bulldoze or junk our history to make way for the new. “Progress” we call. I used to feel the same way, until living abroad. It was in Europe I realized what we lose when we indiscriminantly move toward the future. If we don’t love and save our history, who will?
So I love it when pieces of our history, like these touring buses found in Glacier National Park, are restored.
Throughout Glacier National Park you’ll see these “Red Jammers” carrying tourists about.
Original built in the 1930′s, they were restored by Ford in the early 2000′s to continue to give visitors a classic experience. They now run on eco-friendly propane and are quieter than they once were.
They are a classic all the same. We didn’t take a tour on them, but I certainly loved photographing these beauties! Aren’t they pretty?
These images were all processed with my “Red Buddy” Lightroom preset, which I’ll share in my next newsletter. Be sure to sign up if you want to download the preset. And, in the name of progress, I’m upgrading to Lightroom 4 today. Yay! I look forward to playing around with this new revision. Have you upgraded yet? What’s your favorite new feature? Let me know!
