Very nice design and the use of B&W is great for this old car. Well done, Damian. #37595

Thanks Murry!

I found out about another car show coming up, and I may just have to go.... I'll try and remember to write down the name of some of the cars! #106860

Murry Grigsby May 26, 2019

That's why I posted the truck shot this morning to show you that you just have to include the make, model and antique license in the photo so guys like me won't bug you with questions :0) I'll look forward to the next batch of your automobile shots! #106870

Ditto Murry, Damian! Great us of BW on this! Nothing of the luster is lost! Really the abstract reflection picked up in the back of the mirror! RoB #106881

High quality as always! Dito on everything said. The rear view mirror in the negative space of the window is pure genius! Not to mention the reflection, I must say D this could be a grand prize winner. And Dale is right... the "ordinary you make extraordinary" is wonderful!
