This guy didn't get the memo that jeeps aren't that good in the snow.

Some simple color blocking from a time trial I shot this past weekend.

My current drive. Bought and built it into this for obvious reasons. Simply awful in the city, some places it simply wont fit. Been stolen once, they are very popular in the various wars being waged in Africa and they tend to gravitate north once stolen. I was pleased to recover it. I have been hit from the back twice on the freeway. The first time I had to engage 4X4 to get it off the VW that had lodged under it because the back tires were up in the air. Scratched my bumper, a bit annoying but the VW was totaled.

Good looking Cruiser that Martin.

Don't know how, but I seem to have missed this thread.

Your daughter was lucky Slobodan; interesting, though, that she thought to take it where no car should reasonably go!

As close as I ever got to keeping anything long enough to go classic. Twelve or thirteen years? I'd still have it except for the eventually annual visits to the body shop to repair the roof at the left A-pillar which developed rust. What with paint etc. it became silly. Miss it for many reasons, including our two last drives through France up to Scotland...

Many great pictures of beloved cars  :)

I work near a couple of classis car shops, so I often take photos with my smartphone while walking to the office. Here a few of them


Classic Jaguars






An Austin Healey 3000




This beauty was alone at dusk




And finally, when you are in a hurry to get to the party

Color blocking... time trial? New terms for me.

Color blocking - just a graphic image centered around a few main "blocks" of complimentary or contrasting colors.  In this case the dark green trees are one main "block" of color, the lighter green grass is another, and the yellow car is a focal point still in the same general color palette.

Time Trial - a "race" where the objects to complete a lap or laps in the fastest time, but you're alone on the course.  Fastest Time of the Day (FTD) wins :)  I used to compete in these - now I have more fun shooting them.  As I get older, the thought of blowing a tire at 165 MPH becomes a little more intimidating :)

Pleased to be of service ;)  I'm not sure if "color blocking" is an actual photographic thing, but it's an interior design thing (and according to my wife a fashion thing) so quite possibly I'm just mixed up!

These car images are well taken. I especially like how the light white areas and chrome are well controlled. Wonderful highlights that really bring out the subject.

How I imagine a road-rage car:

If that's street-legal, then they killed the design of the MGB and the Fiat X1/9 for nothing, forcing those hugely ugly plastic bumpers fore and aft.

Or was that just "selective" regulation la Trump, even BT?

Beauty of the day - Excalibur:

I have seen but two of those in my entire life: one in Miami Airport where it was on display; another here in Puerto Pollensa on the road. Both were white. It would look good in claret (colour, not immersed).
