‘The Astoria Clown Car, Astoria, Oregon
These abstract photographs that I took last year are close up images of 'the Astoria Clown Car' in Astoria, Oregon. You can read about its storied history here: https://www.oldastoria.com/buncha-clowns.php In 1955, a group of men from the Astoria Chamber of Commerce became trained clowns, purchased a '48 Chrysler and painted it with bright colors. This became the 'Clown Car', which was driven in parades and used to help raise funds to build a bridge over the Columbia River, from Astoria, Oregon, to Washington.
