Safe House

Safe House

The journey continues with my Americans Abroad project (an off shoot of my Exploring the Automobile series). This car (I believe its an Oldsmobile - will stand corrected) was photographed in St Leonards. The scene made me think of an episode of the Sopranos or similar. I love scenes like this when I come across them, and in fact get quite excited, as I find it so surreal and love the sense of Americana it evokes here in the UK.

Continuing my Americans Abroad theme, this time of a replica  of the infamous Ford Gran Torino from Starsky and Hutch, which was affectionately known as the "Striped Tomato".  As a kid growing up, this was one of the cars we used to dream about, and was as much a leading character of the hit TV show as were the main stars Starsky, Hutch and Huggy Bear.

Night time photo of a Chevrolet Van that hangs around Eastbourne. Part of my Americans Abroad Series too (link  to my Flickr Gallery) , my homage to all things motorised and American that I come across in my travels.

Photograph of the tail fins of a 1960's pink Eldorado Cadillac that I took in Palma de Mallorca. Normally I would try to photograph the car as a whole, however as it was in a crowded car park, I thought to try and capture some of the more interesting details, and combine this with some really shallow depth of field. I met the owners as I finished up, and it it turns out they were from Vienna in Austria. Really great to see these old American land yachts out and about.
