The detail looks great when enlarged. Just click on the photo.

I love these kind of detail shots from old cars. Most of the time, they're more interesting than a shot of the entire car.

Neat picture. I love detail shots like this.

The detail I always love best in a shot like this is the reflection of the photographer in the chrome! For me it makes the story whole.

Nice shot... Wonder if this is on some sort of tow-truck -- or maybe a fire-truck painted orange...

Annie said...

What an energy color! I got a lift out of looking at this photo, that's for sure.

Chris & Deb said...

Wow Sue-this is really cool!
I count at least 5 self-portraits in all that chrome....
Is that The Hubby observing over your shoulder?

Still said...

Vivid colour for thisimage with an humourous title!

JAM said...

Excellent! That's quite a unique light on this car. Almost like an old lantern.

Ben said...

Excellent detail!

susan said...

Oh my...this is gorgeous!!! I really love the colors and it's cropped perfectly.

Oh, about yesteday's post, I have to laugh at myself...I've been so in love with your soon to be yard that it didn't even occur to me to wonder about the house!

Pequete said...

I see your refection twice in the chrome on the lamp

Chad said...

wonderful photo, I like the reflections

Ex-Shammickite said...

Great reflections in the chrome. I wonder how many hours of polishing went into this piece of art.

I love looking at old cars -- they don't make them like they used to.

Annie said...

Hi Sue, your memory is better than you think.

"There was an old woman who swallowed a fly,
I don't know why she swallowed a fly,
Perhaps she'll die.

There was an old woman who swallowed a spider,
That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her,
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly,
I don't know why she swallowed the fly,
Perhaps she'll die.

I posted the whole song on my comments, just in case you want to remember the whole thing. It's guaranteed to make you laugh.
