Below is a bit of history from their website.

"Circa 1919, on a two-track dirt road known as Woodward, Mike Kurta, Jr. rides his tri-cycle through his father's shop that services horse drawn carriages and is attached to the family's modest living quarters. By 1925 the building is moved back about 40 feet to allow for the widening and subsequent paving of Woodward Avenue. As one of the earliest drive thru service stations, business prospers with Mike Jr. and his wife Margaret eventually taking over the family establishment.

1989, while working for the Kurta's as a mechanic, Jack Marwil purchases the business. Jack is diligent in maintaining the architectural and professional integrity of the art deco garage. In fact, Vinsetta Garage becomes a Woodward Avenue landmark conveying the impression of permanence and stability.

Today Vinsetta Garage boasts close to a century-long commitment to servicing motorists. Passing through the heavy wooden door is like a walk back to "the good ole days" where first names and a firm handshake were the order of the day. The customer service continues to be friendly, prompt and above all reliable today."

This is an original High Dynamic Range (HDR) color photograph created by nationally recognized artist/photographer Jan Kaulins. It is one of the newest artistic images in his most recent series of photographs. Each photograph has been created from nine separate photographic digital exposures and then layered together into one photographic image. It is then ‘tone-mapped’ where individual areas of the photo, as well as contrast, saturation and other qualities of the image can be artistically manipulated to bring out the artistic effects that make these photos so visually unique. Some of the photos in this series are even further enhanced for artistic effect giving them an almost painterly or graphic silkscreened look. They do not look like your grandmothers traditional photos. These photos are however not hand-colored, like Jan’s other photographic series shown on this website.

This is a relatively new photography technique which uses the blending of the nine multiple bracketed exposures to capture and emulate the way that light levels in the real world vary over an enormous tonal range, from the brightest area of sunlight to the darkest area in the shadows. All of these varying degrees of light cannot be exposed properly and captured in a single photograph---hence the necessity of layering and combining of the multiple over and under exposures to allow the viewer to see all of the existing areas of light at one time in one photo. The enhanced saturation and color of the multiple images also is a partial result of this very unique photographic process and can be quite stunning and dramatic. Sometimes these artistic Jan Kaulins photos seem to almost blur the sense of reality and illusion. CLICK ON THE LINK BELOW TO SEE PRICES, SIZES AVAILABLE AND ORDER INFORMATION.

The quality of the Jan Kaulins' photographic prints is much higher than we can show within limits of this web site. Slight tonal changes and blurring around the areas of strong contrast are a result of the JPEG compression process, and are not part of the high quality originals.
