On the first Friday of each month there is a little festival in a downtown parking lot and art gallery here in Falls Church. This Friday's "First Friday Festival" featured an oldies band, the "Sparkplugs," craft and art vendors, a gallery show, and beautifully restored or customized old cars. An eclectic mix of artists, neighborhood people, and bikers milled around in the bright evening sun. I was there and had a tiny sketchbook with me, drawing anything within my line of sight.
Automotive oldies: a 1952 Pontiac and an aqua-and-white 1955 Chevy. Lovingly restored and presented at the First Friday gathering, July 2, 2010.
