Yep, this is a landscape photography site, but every now and then I’ll post something different. I’ve highlighted Wesley before, and will again. I’ve given a shout-out to Missy, and no doubt will again. And here we have an old car, albeit not necessarily in the original condition, as you can see. I doubt metallic purple was a common color back in the 1930s. I took this shot in Rio Vista, California, I believe in 2001. Oh, and this one hangs on my wall, too.
This car is an old Chevy. I believe it is a 1932, but am not sure. This was handheld, on film, at a car show. I had to do all my shots close-in like this because of all the people wandering around. I didn’t want the people in the shots. I also used a star filter to get the star effect. I almost never use that type of filter, because I do not feel it generally gives a realistic effect, but in this case I thought it worked nicely. I have another identical shot without the star effect, and while it looks more realistic, it doesn’t look as good.
Moral of the story: Rules are made to be broken. (Where have I heard that before?)
