Just Restless

They're just restless. Like you. They have to get the car out and go somewhere.

Getting ready for the Cruzn' for Roses Hot Rod n Classic Car Show, comin' up on Saept. 19. No doubt. Otherwise . . . they're just parkin, and that might be illegal here.

That old Mercedes is oddly juxtaposed with that moving pod directly behind it. Great composition. I like the negative space to the left with the vertical line of the stop sign. :)

I read some of these books too but I don't remember any of the lines LA :-)

A well composed shot.

You find the best vintage cars. You should do a coffee table book. Gear work.

Great quote, AH.

I think we've seen this car before. Perhaps driving behind it?

Laurie said...

Hiker, that's one of my favorite Chandler quotes.

Earl, you are right. I have shown this car before. I try not to duplicate cars but this shot was too perfect not to grab. Judy, I hate the modern pod in the background but conned myself into thinking it wasn't obvious in monochrome!

Thanks for the kind words, everybody. Until tomorrow...

Oh you and W are on the same wavelength. Be afraid.

I love your vintage cars. I think you hire them! :)

PS I'm thinking I need another Dena Fix!

If you leave the pic small and don't have the right glasses on, the pod looks like a mid century modern building of sorts...

of course, then you put the right glasses on and enlarge the photo...oh well!!!

You do have a vintage car magnet in that camera of yours!!!

V...keep me posted...I'll be there!!! (or you can swing up to Mammoth!!!)
