Shadow Shot Sunday - Touched up

Concentric Sun and Shadow from 1936
Shadow Shot Sunday 2 returns us to this oft posted view from wheelchair height of classic almost art-deco 1936 Dodge. However, our artist friend in Derby, Rich DiCarlo, continuously requested to add some flair to this view in order to display it at our favorite Gallery@37 in Derby. So this pic was transported via flash drive to his care...and a cool rework of the original. Now minus the reflected photographer, the shadowy arcs highlight the crescent shaped light beam that travels around the whitewall tire. I like the changes he wrought...it remains unsold, yet the non-artist in me is happy that this wheelchair view may yet have commercial possibilities :)

This view seems to symbolise looking through the wheel of time. The wheel design beautifully frames the old car creating a cameo effect. Beautiful.

You were the mastermind of the original and your artist friend added the final flair for perfection.

wow, this is art!
Sorry I'm late - flu kept in bed...
Yes, it will be winter in Helsinki when I go back (for eye operation) but it will get lighter minute by minute in January - this is the darkest period up there...
