A rare sighting of the elusive white El Camino of Southern Minnesota.
“Paradise,” a building so called because of its prominent pink sign, is one that dominates this stretch of Main Street, USA. What really steals the show in this photograph, is the El Camino shining proudly on the empty street. Interestingly, this shot was never supposed to feature an El Camino.
After long preparation and a near perfect exposure, the photograph was sabotaged by a local teen parking right in front of the camera! Quickly recognizing this good fortune, I asked the if he could include his unusual car in the picture.
