Memory #1

By rosie42  

That first night, so many years ago in the back seat of his Hillman Husky, they'd fumbled with eachother's buttons as if reading aloud in a shy whisper from a book of love poems written in braille.

Now he was gone, she would sprinkle a few drops of his aftershave on the sheets and pillowcases before putting them away, and later when she opened the drawer to retrieve them, the ghost from the bottle would rise gently to embrace her ...

The first in a series of images inspired by the Tasmanian cabinet maker and visual artist Patrick Hall. (Anyone interested in viewing some of his fabulous work may click here .)

Please view the large version - all advice, feedback and critique (+/-) welcomed. Thank you for looking ...

I like this, the diffuse (overcast?) lighting makes the colours and textures work well, and it evokes a feeling of quiet and slight sadness.

... you'll need to fix that headlight to make it road legal Wink

I like this shot a lot Susie, great detail throughout and a lovely soft, diffused light too.

Thank you each for dropping by - much appreciated ...

Paul, I think regrettably the car's a long way from roadworthy, well at least for now! Stay tuned as the tale unfolds ...

Now Kin, I'm not sure what you're alluding to, but just for the record it wasn't me in the back of the Hillman Husky! lol {~}

Well, it's got me hooked Susie! Off to see part 2 now....
P.S. The picture alone has a charm: I like cars, like pictures of decay. like pictures that are different.

Hi Susie,

Brings back memories indeed, though far removed from your tales. Spent hours down the back, climbing over nettles "driving" one of these when I was 6-7 in my Grans. Had to chase the chicken's out first though.

Great lens and used very well indeed.
