  1. A slight disadvantage for me of having the image reside on FlickR is that works firewall doesn’t allow it to be shown. That inhibits lunchtime browsing! :-)

  2. Duly predatory. In looking at the whole picture, one is drawn to that lone lamp post behind the railings.

    Examining the car, the paintwork looks quite old so I presume that this is a relic from an earlier, more unrestrained, age. I can imagine it sitting in a NY street somewhere like Harlem and seems slightly at odds with the house behind. Now it looks put out to grass given the vegetation in the foreground.

    It looks great.

    • John, in my neighborhood, a car like this fits in with the Mercedes parked next to it, each a status symbol of sorts.

  3. Everything about this works. The lamp post that John mentions is icing.

  4. Evokes the past — with an American feel. The grass blades in the foreground are a nice touch.

  5. I agree with john’s choice of the word Predatory . It seems to be lurking, read to pounce.

  6. Mercedes?! The big three must be worried!

  7. Great title, many possible stories.
    A long-term pride and joy in a decaying neighbourhood?
    Evocation of ’70s thrillers.
    It even could be one of those big, old Russian steamers.
    This angle and composition is just right for that intrigue.

  8. Yep, sure works well for me too. A visual feast. I do find myself more drawn to the crushing of the leaves along the front by the car rather than anything in that more interesting backdrop though! Great texture in the car – almost non-metalic.

  9. all fits together well. I gather that is the front of the car, looks like heat affected it on re-entry into the earths atmosphere.
