I love the photos! The black and white with just the color of the flag is so dramatic and impressive. You chose some wonderful subjects, Koji!
Gee, thanks Debra! You know, you may enjoy coming up to see the show one day. Lots of nice eateries, too!
Still have the chills! Great job, Koji!!
Catching a cold? I hope not! LOL
Rename post title please to “Some classy snapshots”.
Aww… You are too kind!
I love your photography Koji!
And I love yours! You have quite the artistic eye!
You’re my favorite today Koji. 🙂
Am reminded to the 53 chevy I took dates on as a teenager. Glad it couldn’t talk. 🙂 Great job Koji. –Curt
Curt… Cars CAN talk! You know that!
Great series, Koji. I love your use of selective colour here. It really served to enhance those images in a dramatic way. And I LOVE the photo of the Chevy pick up—fabulous composition and perfect choice to go black and white, as it highlights the form so well. Very nice work! Great photography. :)))
Thank you again, Jeannie. Always so kind! I’m not a fan of selective coloring; it was overdone in the recent past but the photos were so mundane, I gave it a shot. The Chevy pickup is a composite. The original is here: https://www.flickr.com/gp/p47koji/4tUz8e
Thanks for the link, Koji. Yes, I noticed that Chevy photo on Flickr and I love it. I think I might like this one even better—something about the black and white really makes the photo for me. And I agree with you, selective colour is often one of those things people overdo when they first learn how to do it. But there is certainly a place for it and I think you’ve used it perfectly. You enhanced the series by using it and I think you made it more poignant.
Thank you for sharing this series.
But, I humbly disagree that they are ‘just snapshots’ 😉
These are great, Koji! I love how you’ve highlighted the flags! 🙂
Thank you, Linda!
Evocative pictures – I love the romance of those old cars. They probably are best viewed from a non-ownership POV though!!
Indeed, they are expensive to maintain…but fun to drive!
