Vintage Car

an abandoned old car - it must certainly have been exquisite in days gone by.
I captured this image of the old vintage car at a farm in the Magaliesburg whilst
shooting landscapes amongst other things.    I was so captivated by this old relic,
 literally falling apart, but still showing the beauty of what once existed ....
I had to wonder how this car ever ended up where it did, under trees, amidst long
 grass, totally abandoned in the middle of nowhere.  
I guess we will never know how it got there, but at least it enabled an opportunity to
capture it's beauty for posterity.

What stories this old gild must be able to tell. Old wrecks like this always make for interesting subjects.

Beautiful photo of this antique car. You've captured the shadows so well.

It's a pretty shade of red and the shadows on the left offer a rainbow effect. I love this shot!

This fine old car seems to be abandoned to return to nature in this field. Nice! Cars from long ago were styled so differently, much more artistic in design than modern cars. Today's cars are better, but do not have the look of the past - the styling so much more passionite back then...
