1950 Pontiac Hood Ornament - Nikon FE - Nikkor-SC 55mm F/1.2 - TMAX 3200

1950 Pontiac Hood Ornament

El Rincon Criollo Cuban Restaurant

4361 Sepulveda Blvd

Culver City, Los Angeles County, California

 

The owner of El Rincon Criollo also owns this cherry 1940's Pontiac Sedan painted with colorful scenes of Cuba. He uses it as a rolling advertisement for the restaurant. Sometimes it is parked in front, and it was there late one evening while I was out walking looking for interesting subjects to shoot. I took some shots of the car, but B&W does not do it justice. However this shot of the hood ornament came out very nice.

 

I can't decide if I like this one better or the one from the other side I posted earlier.
