Classic Cars


Generally, I have no interest in cars, but classic cars...
well, that's another story.
When my husband asked if I wanted to go to the local classic car show,
my answer was "Yes!" and I got my camera bag ready.



The cars exhibited many of the qualities that I hunt for - 
vivid color, graceful shapes, reflections, and abstract patterns.





Beautiful, rich value contrasts, too.





Company is coming, so I may not be back till next week.
Hope your week is happy!

  7. I smile as I read this Anna, as I have no real interest in cars either, but a couple of weeks ago, we visited a classic car museum, and it was amazing. These photographs are wonderful, and I love the angles/compositions you chose to photograph these wonderful classics. Really, really fantastic!

    Thank you so much for sharing these today at The Creative Exchange.

    Have a wonderful day!

  13. Sundays are classic car days here during the summer. There is a nostalgic beauty that catches my heart seeing a senior couple cruising in a '57 Chevy complete with her bonnet tied so the wind doesn't toss around her hair. Love your pics!

  17. What a perfect group of models for you to shoot. These are from my day so I can really appreciate the lines and in a way their simplicity. My first car was a Plymouth coupe...oh, how I loved her. Split window and a tiny back seat....brown. I can still remember her at 72 like it was just yesterday. Thanks for a beautiful photo trip down memory lane. Genie

  27. Indeed, classic cars are a thing of beauty. Modern cars are good too, but it's nice to see a good ol' vintage car parked around somewhere. I really love these photos that you took, good job!

  29. I’m really into vintage cars! I always go to vintage cars shows as much as I can, just like you do. And like what Junior said, your shots are beautiful! Though I’d prefer if you had a full body shot. Don’t you have any full body shots of these cars?
