No longer gliding forward on each tire’s balloon cushion this vehicle slumps to the earth in resignation. Snow’s first fall dusts this Plymouth Savoy’s pitted hood, scars of gravel-sprayed journeys. Paint erodes, chrome still gleams. The vertical of trees’ up and down becomes contrast to rounder more human car curves.

Listening to – Lenka’s ‘The Show.’

Quote to Inspire – “I don’t believe a person has a style. What people have is a way of photographing what is inside them. What is there comes out.” – Sebastiao Salgado

    Something about old cars – like that gold interpretation

      Hey there …

      I’m liking the gold version, too … the colour within the shot brings something different out in the image.

    I like the classic look of No.1.

      I can agree with you; the classic look of no. 1 is most well lit or perhaps evenly lit … and reveals the car in its truest form. 🙂

    Love the different perspectives. Thanks for stopping by and the like of my post “Trying to Stand Tall”.

      Hello …

      Different perspectives … one of the joys of photography is about the sequences of editing events toward something unseen before, but there — definitely what part of photography is about.

      Take care … 🙂
