ARCHIVE: LOOKING AT CARS 8 – DARK CAR (MONO + COLOUR)

 

 


.

Car at traffic lights in central Bristol; 6 Apr 2013.

I’m drawn to this great, dark, looming presence – its waiting at the lights, growling deeply and looking like some squat and unstoppable, armoured assault weapon.  The sun was searing down but, for all the effect it was having on this baby, our star might as well have been tickling it with a feather duster.

The Looking at Cars series: looking back through the nine years of the FATman Photos archives (and some new images too), I’m posting pictures of cars in various contexts and styles.  Earlier Looking at Cars posts are here: 1 (with context); 2 3 4 5 6 7 .

Technique: G11 PowerShot at 140mm (35mm equiv); 100 ISO; conversion to mono and selective colour restoration in Silver Efex Pro 2, starting at the Yellowed 1 preset.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer - using mono, colour and combinations of the two - many types of subject, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous, trying new ideas, working in multiple genres. And I've a weakness for Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
