12 - Antique

Well, probably not really an antique.  More likely a Replicar (but it looks antique!).  For once, I had my camera with me, on me, and ready to shoot, when I saw something I wanted a picture of!  (Miracles do happen, after all!)  This cool car went past as I was walking to my own vehicle at the Allen, TX public park.  I had to take a shot (and then clone the massive electrical pylon out of the photo).  B&W and warm filter, and there she is.  What a beauty!

  2. I agree the sepia coloring works well. I just take my camera bag now like its my purse, in fact I have almost left my purse, but not my camera.

  3. Nice shot! It really does look like an antique photo of the car instead of a current photo of an antique car. Cool!

  5. Obviously taken with an antique Box Brownie camera. Terrific how those old things still work, (Like some of us I guess.

  6. Love the sepia. I'm hoping it's a real antique. At any rate, it's interesting.

  9. The car may not be an antique, and we know that the photo isn't--but they both certainly SEEM like the real thing!

  11. Great Antique. My camera bag weighs more and more as the lens become more plentyful. Now I need me a P & S.

  12. Isn't it fun when you happen upon just the right subject and you HAVE your camera! I have been taking my smaller one out with me when I go anywhere. The bigger one goes on photoshoots (drives around the town looking for fascinating subjects) and I carry my monopod with me then.
