At the Car Wash

Post by LindaShorey » Tue Jan 30, 2018 6:31 pm

Originally inspired by a creative internet buddy's pic, I've revisted the theme every time I happen to have my camera with me and the car needs a cleaning.

These are full frame (no crop) and not distorted in any way as I wanted the original capture through the windshield. But yes, they are heavily edited otherwise :)

Well now that's a unique set of photos. That first one looks like patriotic dental X-rays? the third touches my Industrial heart. Very nice grungy detail on all those things, whatever they are, that make up the car wash.

Great thinking and creativity.

Linda, I really go for #2. Looks like our galaxy at its formation. Were you listening to Jimmy Croce? Matt

Patriot x-rays, how fun! The flesh-colored spot on lower left is actually a gray-hatted worker using a spot spray on the car just before I entered the beast :)

#3 is the air blower, I believe, near the end. Many thanks for commenting, Minnie!

I saw outer space, so we're on the same wave length for that one, Matt :D Many thanks for your interest.

Thinking outside the box is always a good thing !!! The first one is so colorful, almost have a desire to be eaten. I'm still trying to figure out what the last one actually is. I may be so close that I can't see.

Thanks for commenting, Dave! Keep in mind the perspective is from my driver's seat through the windshield. #3 is the air blowers (after the washing and rinsing stage) hanging from the ceiling, I believe. What was particularly fun was just working with what came in the frame, not thinking about - or wanting to - crop or flip...though too bad the big part of machinery on right is cut off :lalala:

I think they are all terrific! Very imaginative! I know you were "just shooting what came into frame" but there's a vision behind it, and the editing shows it. (OK)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|
