About the Image(s)

How about a bunch of triangles on a round wheel?!!! I found this car parked outside a museum. An old but interesting car. It looked well kept up...until I brought out the details in the whitewall area using the Highlights slider in Lightroom. Too bad I didn't take an overall picture of the car. Now that I'm not using film, I should be more liberal with my shooting! Can anyone identify the kind of car? It was black.

This round’s discussion is now closed!

I like the bright red color of the wheels with the black background. If I was to guess, it was something like a Ford Model A maybe ? The tires are thin (4.75 x 19) and the wheels are usually spokes (what came as original).
I never would've thought of the triangles on tires !

Oh my goodness, I think it looked very similar to this! Thanks. I was attracted to it mostly because of the red spokes. I wonder if YOU are reflected in this car's rearview mirror's chrome?!   Posted: 11/27/2021 09:58:26

Old cars are rich sources for photographs. You did very well with exposure, composition, color, and everything else. Circles and triangles; what a find!   Posted: 11/15/2021 14:02:37

Your wheel makes an excellent abstract, full of triangles. There is excellent sharp detail in the red and good detail in the black tire. No distractions anywhere. This is a very strong image.   Posted: 11/27/2021 14:50:26

I love the juxtaposition of this, the triangles incased in a wheel. Definitely don't see this type of detail in new cars nowadays. Perfect shot for this months theme.   Posted: 11/29/2021 12:39:51
