Not too sure, but I think it was the grill that ended the affair: Your thoughts?

I am not really sure what you are referring to here, but the chrome on the grill is still in good shape [link]

Oh just a personal dislike for the round/oval grill design. Ford I believe used this as a signature design for a while. It was a mistake then and now, as buick it seems is also making the poor choice of attempting to incorporate this oval grill as a signature mark.

But no, the photo is outstanding itself. I believe that I commented more intelligently on one of your other works: Retirement I believe. Is that right?

So no, I think your work is outstanding and any comments of mine you are more than free to eliminate at will.

I sincerly appologize, I didn't think too much about the comment and I will be more careful.

I see what you are saying. I don't really approach the vehicles I photograph from that perspective. In a way they are like people to me that I want to make a portrait with. So the history and design are interesting, but on a very different level. When I see a vehicle, I think about it in terms of where it is an what it looks like. Then I determine if a different kind of light is needed, and if so I return on a different day. But if the light plays right on her, then I try to take images that show her beauty. Sometimes I fail totally, at other times I am satisfied with how things come out.

Any way, thanks for explaining. You may of course very well be right about the circular grill. For my purposes though, it worked OK.

That sounds great Ulises. I remember doing my thesis and the time it took. I did a study of staff attributes with statistical analysis. Interesting stuff but very time consuming. So hang in and do your best.

I am fine, nothing much seems to change, more shows of course, parents, myself and my boys all getting older. Other than that, it is just life.

When things settle down for you send me a note. I would love to hear and give more details, but not in this way.

Great B&W. Images from the past are some of the best out there.

I do not do a lot of B&W, mainly because when I studied photography that was all we could do for a very long time. When I finally got to colour I swore I would never go back. But every once in a while an image fits for me.

I understand how you feel. I prefer color myself but every now and then B&W is the right fit for the image.

Pretty photo! I love the composition and the detail. I wonder what stories this oldie could tell if it could speak? I hope this will be restored as I hate to see a piece of history fade away. Great job.

This body was used for the 1938 and 39 Fords, this one is a 1938.

You find all the best stuff Wayne!

Hopefully in the summer I will get some good shots too!

Hi Ryan, I was able to meet the owner of this truck. He runs a body shop and has a number of restored cars. He also has a woody station wagon that he is going to restore this summer. He told me it was a 37. [link] But you know me... I have no clue and I rely on people like yourself.

I would bet that it was still running when it was parked and the tuck was just baked into this place. At some other time, I suspect someone looked it over and left the door open.

it turned out not too bad SC. B&W processing has visual parameters that cannot be applied to colour work. This image fits fairly well within them, though I can see a few areas that push the limits. I'm not complaining, that is just how it is. Perfection in B&W is difficult to achieve. Though most people don't know the difference.

nod I agree. It's very easy to looses details or range in black and white when you push to far or over expose. I started learning about photography in a black and white only class. I loved it this was back before digital and we were processing our own negatives and prints. I loved the challenges. I still love the look and feel of black and white photography.
