Big Red by WayneBenedet Big Red by WayneBenedet
Jan 12, 2011 - colour correction repost


Sometimes old cars seem to sneak up behind me. I was on a yard looking at some other vehicles I had noticed from the road. I had finished photographing them and turned around to walk back to my car. It was only then that I noticed this truck. While I was initially blown away by my lack of observation, I felt that this lifelong deficit was redeemed by the beauty of the colour against the sky.

I hope you enjoy.

1946-47 Dodge. Flathead 6, 4 speed, 2 speed rear end.

Thank you to all who comment or :+fav:

I love this photo so much! And I love the title - I think it fits perfectly! I like the ears on the foreground and the sky - it gives a feeling of freedom!

This is still newer than the vehicles on which I learned to drive!

I'm always amazed at how the head lights stay so clear even after decades have gone by
