Shadow Shot Sunday - Cool Customline


Shadow Shot Sunday 2 is back, and I revert to a favorite of mine, now the desktop photo on the computer. It is the mixture of bold colors, chrome, reflections and of course, shadows. The car a 1955 Ford Customline, the lower priced Ford of that year (Fairlane the top) - even the less opulent models had plenty of chrome as standard equipment - not optional. 

The obvious shadows fall under the car itself, from the V8 emblem and under myself and Allegra. A sunny day also allows for the two if us to show up twice in the many shiny and curvaceous arcs and contours. Cars from back then were not very good compared to today - but what style! Follow the shadowy world at the great SSS2!

Rather sad that chrome has gone the way of the horse and buggy these days!

Cool shot, Ralph!

It does seem kind of sad not to see that shiny chrome anymore! Terrific shadow shot for the day, Ralph! That is SHINY!!! Hope you have a great weekend!

I love this photo, as you know! It needs to be enlarged and framed.

It's easy to see why you've saved it as your screensaver image. It's a great shot. They don't make cars lie that anymore (sadly).

We could so go for a ride in that beauty for sure!! It's that time of year...time to put the convertible away :( I think we'll have at least one more week before it goes back into storage for the year! Hope all is well your way...enjoying the beautiful fall we have!!

Adore the bold landscape reflection on the shiny bumper bar. The reflection suggests a kind of gallery of beauty! Certainly enhances the beauty of a stylish car!

Dear Ralph .. cars back then were like beautiful women .. all curves with beautiful colour ? haha
But .. safety issues came up and now vehicles are like .. hum ? Amazon women .. more of the strong substance and practicality ? LOL

The colors and the reflections are superb in your photo today Ralph.

And, oh my gosh....I am typing and viewing your Picstory images also [partially] and had to scroll down to view the entire post. Why? Because the blond in the black and white photo in her swim-suit could VERY WELL BE ME!! I have a photo of myself at around that tender age -eons ago, of course....but it's like a flashback to the 50s!!! Whoa.
