More Classic Cars


Even though I posted a bunch of fancy cars here a week ago,
and even though I am doing it again today,
I am really not a car guy.

See, I have a new tripod, and I was driving home recently,
and these cars and this building jumped out at me, so I turned my car around . . .

What is a "car guy"?

This is nice! I do think the B&W captures the scene better. Looks like a 1960s time and place.

Andy said...

Looks great in colour.

Tanya Breese said...

that is such an awesome shot, i really like the color photo! great job!

SRQ said...

As soon as I saw the first pic I thought, 'I wonder what this would look like in B & W?' That being said, I think I prefer the color version. (It almost looks like a sepia treatment, which is cool.) Dabbling in tripod usage and night shooting? Your photography world is really opening up. Have fun!

That's superb!
Must be a dangerous place to drive though, Jack, with cars and buildings jumping out at you! Try putting that on your insurance claim!

VP said...

The color shot is wonderful, but also the B&W it is not bad, and I am not a fan...

Kate said...

Both are special in their own way. Oddly it reminds me of the old drive-ins.

I'm not a car person either but I can still admire these photos!

Luis Gomez said...

What a great shot! Looks wonderful in both ways.

Stefan Jansson said...

Clever of you. Nice rides.

The light is terrific in both photos, but I think the b&w one has the edge. It takes us back to that earlier era. BTW, my Dad had that model Ford Thunderbird, and I got to drive it on special occasions.

Lois said...

I would have turned around too! These shots are great.

Randy said...

Love the b&w shot.

It's good to be impulsive sometimes Jack, you got a fab image here.. love that you went all the way and included a B&W, nice!

Sharon Anck said...

Congrats on the new tripod. You've put it to good use. These are great shots.

Sylvia K said...

You do have fun with your camera and tripod, don't you!! I love it! The B&W is perfect for the time period of the cars! Great shots as always, Jack! Hope you're having a great week, it does look like it!!

RedPat said...

Fabulous, Jack! I like the colour best. ;-)

José Mendonça said...

Both versions are brilliant! Enjoy your new toy. :-)

Karl Demetz said...

I prefer the colored one.
Good use of your new tripod, Jack!

These say U.S. to me more than most of your pictures. Quintessential. A tripod too.... Hope you do better with yours than I with mine - 'octopus' and 'wrestling' come to mind.

Kay said...

The tones are very good in the color shot but I really love the crisp edge it the b&w...and it so suits the vintage of the cars.

William Kendall said...

I rather like the black and white version. They're terrific cars.

Michelle said...

I do like old cars. My dad worked on Mustangs when I was in high school and I was able to drive them around.

Bob Crowe said...

These are awfully good photographs. Hard to say whether I prefer the color or B&W. I guess I lean toward the color. It got that slightly-off early color film look that's so appropriate for the subject.

I'm not a huge car person either, but I do like to shoot a classic when I get the chance. Here I like the color shot for the cars but the sign looks cooler in black and white!

i really miss seeing this kind of stuff in person...
