Ragged Edge Moment of Zen


Through the lens of Otis Blank

Budding pro lensman Otis Blank recently attended a cars and coffee event in New Jersey, and the results are breathtaking. Here are some of my favorites. Click HERE for the full photoset!


Parabolica, 1965


Villa D'Este Dream

Imagine you are sitting on the deck of the fabulous Villa D'Este, overlooking Lago di Como. It's an overcast morning. You are enjoying your coffee, waiting for the sun to come out. You hear the crunching of gravel under tire, and turn to see a breathtaking Alfa 6C 2500 motoring slowly past to park by the lake. Then another identical car pulls beside the first one. Then another.  Soon, you are looking at 5 glorious Villa D'Este Alfa Romeos parked neatly at the place where they were first shown to the public in 1952.  Only 36 of these cars were made by Carozzeria Touring, and 5 of them are in front of you, as if they showed up just for you to photograph them.  Sounds like a dream, right?  Yet this actually happened to our friend Ben Clymer, who runs the well regarded watch site Hodinkee. He was kind enough to share these gorgeous photos of that special moment. Full gallery HERE.

I wish F1 wasn't such a circus... a glimpse of a simpler time.
