I enjoy photos of cars – especially iconic cars in stunning locations. The skill of the photographer is paramount. Was it planned? Complete luck? Or was it simply the ability to make post editing changes that tweak the final image? As the writer of the blog says; “Love it or loathe it, the use of Photoshop or similar software in modern day pictures is now an integral part of our lives”.
Personally, I’m not averse to a bit of technology ‘tweaking’ to provide that extra bit of drama and flair. That said I also like the ‘old school’ approach with filters, lights and other subtle props.
Whatever your own opinion, art is always going to be subjective and down to personal taste. Hope you enjoy this link. I did.
Well, here is a collection of absolutely wonderful machinery from the 1970’s and 1980’s that I really hanker after.
Saloons, Wagons, coupes….all collected together and driven on track, on roads and just cruising. The Mercedes with the surf board on top particularly appeals…I have an old W124 estate – I think it might succumb to that look!
Few machines are as ripe for customization as motorcycles. They’re pure mechanical simplicity. Two wheels, an engine, a transmission, some brakes and handlebars, and endless possibilities. Go to any motorcycle race and walk through the parking lot. You won’t find two bikes that are exactly alike. If dogs are a facsimile of their owners, motorcycles are their two-wheeled equivalent.
Nobody understands this better than Chris Hunter, author of a new book book: The Ride.
Chris was asked by ‘Wired’ to list the 10 best custom machines to come out in 2013, and this is what he came up with. Enjoy.
