Got the term slice of life from Erskine Caldwell. Took me a while to grasp the full understanding of it all.
Back when i was a kid going on vacation with my family, if you went someplace really neat you could buy decals at the souvenir store, and place them on your car window. The more places you had been, and the more decals you had, the cooler your car was, or so it seemed to this young boy. This photo was taken at Concours d' elegance - Amelia Island in 2005. It was on the side window of a restored woody. For the life of me I don't know why I did not make a photograph of the whole car. Funny where attention is focused at times.
By the way, I've never been to Nebraska. In fact after the Boss made his album, for a while there, I thought it was near New Jersey.
