Tucked away in Shandon, Ohio, rests an incredible classic car museum. The Salty Dog museum features dozens of expertly restored Ford Model A's & T's and eight vintage fire trucks. When my late husband’s client and good friend ran out of room on his spacious Indiana property for all of his acquired antique vehicles that he so lovingly restored, my husband recommended that his friend establish a non-profit museum for all to be able to enjoy his exquisite collection. I arranged a field trip for my photography club to this most interesting museum.

Hi Alane,
Amazing hood ornament. It looks like a piece of jewelry. I appreciate the beauty of antiques. The shapes and lines create interest. The diagonal line created by the ornament leads my eye up to the three jewels on top. I wonder if the background above the first silver horizontal line, behind the top of the hood ornament could be darkened. It may give more focus to the subject. However, it may have been your intent to leave all the details in the frame. Nicely done.   Posted: 10/06/2021 17:17:50

Hi Alane: You certainly found an interesting subject to photograph, a lot of details to look at. Barbara makes a good point of toning down the bright chrome trim pieces in back of the hood ornament. Good seeing to spot this.   Posted: 10/10/2021 02:12:04
