The Street Rod show had many, many cars that had been restored to perfection and looked just as good as, if not better than, they had when they were new. I got a lot of good shots of those, but a part of me liked the other cars – the weathered, worn, and a bit beat up – even better. They had more texture and felt more tied to their history. One of my favorite shots of the day, and one I didn’t include in the previous post, was this one.
This picture perfectly encapsulates the idea of a relic to me because it’s weathered & worn and the part of the photo that’s most in focus is the part that looks back.
