An earlier than usual and totally unexpected severe snow storm made things nasty on Michigan's east coast last month. I tried to embrace it but in my head I kept reminding myself "If all goes right, this is your last winter in this low wage town and in this state."

I will only shoot a 57 Chevy if I spot one the in the wild. Nothing against them, it's just the Fonzie/Nostalgia/Oldies "theme" businesses that base their whole theme around that makes me not give much care in seeing them all that much.
Eric Clapton's "Rock-n-Roll Heart" is complete bullshit. That old coot had not "got off 'Screamin' Guitars'" for a good 20 years when he recorded that song.

The aperture on this particular Lomography Diana F+ (I have a few of their branded ones along with a couple of the OG 1960's ones due to rescuing them when I find in the wild) tends to slip so the exposure is a bit dimmer than anticipated (because of not double-checking where it was set before I clicked the shutter.)
I kinda dig the muted tone on it though. I credit the Kodak Ektar 100 for that aspect of it.
This weekend marks the last one of summer for the year. I live within walking distance of one of the Great Lakes. I only ever made it to the beach maybe two times this year. The lack of visits wasn't by choice. Life just commanded things that way.

Their breakfast at this place was one of the legendary cheap "hangover cures" in the area. That was ages ago as the place has been long gone for a while now. How was the rest of their food? I never knew but figured there was more than just one reason why it was always (semi-lovingly) referred to as the El Rauncho.
