Mustang of the week #8
This week’s guest in my ‘Mustang of the week’ series is Rob from Austin (Texas / USA). Here are his answers to my 5 questions:
1. Which of your own photos in the Flickr group you like most?
Of the photos I have in the group, my favorite is the shot of the brake light, looking down the street ahead.
2. Is there a particular story around one of your Mustang photos that you would like to share? Something that happened when you took it? Or something related to the response you got on the photo so far?
A part of my work as a photographer includes shooting weddings. I was actually in the middle of shooting a wedding when I happened across this beauty. While we waited for the bridal party to arrive for their portraits, I cranked off several frames for the guy who had done the restoration.
3. Do you own a Mustang yourself? Which model? And would you like to have one if that’s not the case yet?
I don’t own one now, but my first car was a red 1965 Mustang Fastback, pretty similar to the one in the photos. I wish that I had never sold it.
4. Do you have a specific love for photographing Mustangs? Or is a coincidence? Or a passion for cars in general?
I love shooting all cars, but I particularly enjoy shooting classic Mustangs. Owning one gave me a special passion for them. Plus, the Mustang is the car that started the muscle car phenomenon. I have a special appreciation for that.
5. Which one of the other photos (in the Flickr group) are you jealous of as a photographer?
Though "The Boss" technically came later, I love the shot of the 1965 Fastback’s gills:

Thanks for your answers and for your photos, great stuff. My personal favorite from your photos in my Flickr group is this one:
There are quite a few photos out there that capture the Mustang logo on the grille but yours is a really fine example of that.
More goodness next week.
