I'm sure it looked a lot like that, Rob.

Reminds me of the interior of my dad's Dodge Custom Royal when I was a kid. He'd started stripping it, intending to do a full refurb, but then abandoned the project.  :)

Sadly I have to wonder how many of these projects are entered into with passion only to be put on the back burner and ultimately forgotten.

The car I photographed was never even a project, abandoned by the side of the road and left to rot. Apparently - thanks to my wife for having the presence of mind to capture the identity plate mounted under the bonnet - it is a Simca type 90 A from the 50s.

In my dad's case it was my mom who put the kibosh on the project. He was also in the midst of refurbing a sailboat with a friend, and she told him he could do one or the other but not both. So the Royal sat for a while before being sold. Its spot in the garage was then taken up by the sailboat.  ;D

Rob, lovely series.

Thanks, Keith

I've a few more from the power station visit - surprising what a quick shoot can offer if the place has potential. Reminds me of Bailey's famous throwaway line about Jean Shrimpton: "She's the cheapest model in the world because you only need to shoot half a roll of film and you've got the shot."

I know this is the WP thread, and no how-to-improve-it comments are wanted, but regarding your old guy in India, I just wanted to indicate to anyone wondering about photographic balance etc. that they should consider the sunlit spot on the right, and how well it strikes an equilibrium within the whole. Take that away, and it alters everything. These are the kinds of details that might look accidental but are anything but, and give you immediate framing clues on what feels right as you look through the camera.

As that's dangerously close to describing/defining art, I think it a good moment to retreat.

:-)
