Burned Out Old Car
During the week I’d been messing around with the monochrome setting on the camera and thought it would be fun to see if I could get a half decent photograph using the setting. Black and white photographs do have their appeal and some are quite stunning. When the right subject is photographed.
This morning’s walk with the dogs was camera day (how else am I going to get a Sunday photo?)! Yay! Perfect! At the side of one of the paths in the hills is a burned out old car. With a stony trail running up past it, I thought it would make for an interesting monochrome photograph… Well, I was wrong. The black and white image didn’t ‘do’ it for me, but the colour one did.
Interestingly the same bushes that were alive with bees last week were sad and alone this week, with not one bee in sight. The flowers on them all curled up and dead. I actually felt sad for the bushes and the cruel way Mother Nature works sometimes. It reminded me of that person who is only ever popular when they have something that others want. I suppose that’s the sad way popularity works.
My Sunday Photo
I wonder what the story behind this burned out old car is? Was it used in a heist and burned out to destroy evidence? Maybe it spontaneously combusted whilst the owner was out walking in the hills? Or could be the General Lee’s retirement package?… Okay, not quite, but very similar in shape to a person who knows nothing about cars except whether they are a nice colour or not… OooOOOooo not entirely true, my dream car? A pretty pink Fiat 500 with a black and white chequered ‘border’.
Just for the record when shooting in RAW, when viewing on a PC, you only seem to get a preview of the image in black and white before it turns to colour. Who knew?…
Whatever happened to General Lee?
