• bad tail light.
  • Toyota Corolla.
  • Mustang. Girl inside (I know, because she wound up pulling in at the same BP gas station I did. I thought she might beat me up for taking pictures of her car. She didn't. Lucky me.
  • There used to be cigarette butt here. I threw it in the trash. Digitally, anyhow.

Tailed (Explore)

Driving to grab a cup of joe today in my dinky (err... fuel-efficient) little Toyota I thought I'd hang my camera out the door and snap a few shots.

I didn't get the motion blur I wanted (there's a little there, but not much), and it was a pretty boring shot. But a little digital darkroom magic makes it a bit more dramatic and maybe even menacing.

Like a scene from a noir film.

    I love this shot. You did good. I think, IMHO, that it could stand alone without the frame tho'. It's an interesting perspective and I really like the treatment.

    Thanks, everybody, for the invites and the comments! This started out as a fairly bland "snapshot" and has turned into one of my favorite photos.

    bunchadogs and susan, I agree, I should probably kill the frame. I wasn't sure, and choosing/creating frames is one of my weakest skills.

    M Abbas Thanks a ton for the invite! I'm declinging the invitation to join in order to share my photo, though, simply because I've joined too many groups as it is! Otherwise, I'd happily do so.

    Regards,
