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.’

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.
Hey there, Jack …
Thank you for looking in and all you do with your black and white images … good schtuff!
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”.
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 … 🙂
