Someone said the devil is in the details. But when I look into the viewfinder of my camera, what I see in the details is delight. Here are some of the details I noticed last week when I went to Auburn, Indiana, for a few hours at the Auctions America and Worldwide Auctioneers sale, with a quick run through the parking lot of the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Museum where some car owners were getting ready for the annual ACD Festival.
