Pride and Elegance

By tonymarq
Hi everyone! Another from the archive so i'm hoping i can get out this weekend maybe go down to the lake throw my cell phone in and get some new pic's,lol! Well was on the sight tonight and was inspired by Robin chapman's post of a "step back in time" and how it looks, like an image from the time period with an oldy car and the home plus presentation set it just right! so i went back in time (this past summer) and always wanted to do somthing with this image but not sure how i wanted to present it. changed to mono, a little softness,and a time period type border! hope you like and check out Robin's as it's a beauty of an old fashioned type image in great style!!

stay well

I like how you have photographed this and then given it a vintage feeling--- a splendid old car from an elegant time!

Snow??? It all blew away-- We are to get something nasty tomorrow afternoon-- the locals say-- HAHA-- then you get it!

Great to have you back on the site! jennnn

Hi Tony, hope the weather is not as bad as we are getting at the moment.
Have to admit I alwayas think the old classics have so much more style than modern vehicles, maybe it all that chrome work and large footplates.
Nicley done and presented.

Tell all I was asking for them
