Shadow Shot Sunday - A big land barge with even bigger shadows


Shadow Shot Sunday 2 returns as Spring heads toward Summer, the days much nicer than in the preceding snowy and cold Winter. Thus, the warmth and sun leaves us stronger shadows under the more direct sun. So, stout shadows are the goal, and I found a fine subject (if one likes chrome laden 1950s Detroit land barges, as much as I :)

This is a 1956 Mercury Montclair convertible, a large and overstyled land yacht in its black and white hue with a matching interior, it leaves huge shadows underneath its visage and flanks. And it has shiny chrome bumpers leaving reflections of the photographer. It works well as a stylish iron SSS2 subject and who wouldn't want to fold the top down and take it for a spin?

LOVE THAT CAR!! They just don't make 'em like they use to.

Definitely a fun shadow shot from you this week.

Oh! Be still my heart! I love these old beauts. So grand with their lines and chrome and upholstery. They don't make them like this anymore, sadly.
Have a great weekend and thank you for serving!

Oldie but goodie, are the words.

TIme for them to rule the summer streets, right?

Hope you and Patty have a great sunny weekend.

Such an imrpessive grand looking car. Love how you have captured the magical shine of the chrome and the bold shadows in contrast.
