blue antique



The car in the window display of this antique shop caught my eye. I really liked the color.

Ainz,
This is an Austin A40 model from 1950 or 1951. To a collector is would be worth a fortune. A truly amazing shot !!! Merci beaucoup.

I'd love a car like that - beautiful colour.

Ainz - I like the car (although I prefer the blue colour of the pots in the foreground - called "midnight blue" I think) but I love the whole photo - beautifully framed and apart from the car, other interesting objects d'art ... the shadows on the ceiling are also an interesting part of the photo. Well done!

Hi everyone--I'm just catching up on comments...days later. thanks for dropping by.

m.benaut--I had no idea what kind of car it was--it just caught my eye because it looked so beautiful in the window, but I figured there would be at least one car enthusiast out there who would know what it was. of course, it had to be you!

mme.benaut-the blue pots on the window sill were actually old tins of car wax--so everything was related. I also like all the other elements in the picture--the wooden beam in the ceiling, the wooden cabinet in the background warms up the picture a bit and balances out all the blue, and the antique sculpture on the left has a nice contrasting style.
