Shades of Yesterday

As much as I enjoy large sweeping images like landscapes and scenes downtown, I have to remind myself that sometimes the picture is in the details. This 1936 Buick is a beautiful car as a whole, but the individual pieces can be just as interesting. The large chrome grill, the round, detached headlights make a statement on this car found only from other cars of its era.

This Buick was taken at a recent car show in Baytown, Texas.

  1. My sentiments exactly, Tim. Most people grab the quick shot of the whole vehicle whilst not realizing that the details can produce much more interesting and unique shots.

    1. Though I still like the full car shots, I’m trying harder to look for details that make them each so special. Old habits are hard to break though!

  2. This is just so fabulous Tim! I love the character found in this era of car design, and this one is no exception. Great composition and shot, my friend, and the monochromatic processing does a great job of adding a sympathetic element to the scene you’ve captured.
