PhotoChallenge.org 2016 Week 21: Black & White Automobiles
This week's challenge wants us to show up the form and function of automobiles...those modern day chariots that transport us from place to place. I've never really been a car guy, but I can appreciate the polished chrome, shiny paint, and even sometimes the rusted-out hulks that cars can offer for the photographer in me.
1) Tails: Most of these shots come from a quick photo shoot with my friends' (Ron and Denise) '99 white Corvette. They keep this prize cocooned in a bubble all winter and are always excited to hatch it back into service each spring. Growing up, my dad had Corvettes over the years and are my favorite sports car because of that. My dad would also say that all Corvettes are red, the others are mistakes... Sorry Ron!
2) Objects in Mirror: I like the play of light and shadow in this shot. More abstract for sure, but still cool.
3) Where There's Fire: This is the hubcap from our local Waconia, MN fire and rescue truck that sits outside the fire department glistening in the sun. I like how the reflection of the other garage doors shows up the shot.
So thats this week's presentation!
