Though battered and rusting, the slightly Art Deco grille of an old 30s Chevy pickup is still handsome enough to be the star of this black and white 5x7 classic car closeup photograph. The vintage Chevrolet's grille rests on the Texas soil, grass visible between the grille's rust-speckled chrome bars, the engine that once rested behind it long gone. The old car—still more than good-looking enough to catch my eye, despite her semi-dilapidated state—waits in a field along Route 66, rusting into the earth a bit more every year, every season leaving the old truck a bit further removed from the possibility of restoration.


Photograph Title: Not Too Close To Love You
Print Size: 5x7 with a .25-.5" white border
Photograph Orientation: Horizontal
Photograph Taken In: Amarillo, Texas, USA


Much as I enjoy photographing glossily restored (or retained!) vintage automobiles, the rusting, crusty, beat-up old cars lure me in their direction just as quickly as their better-loved sisters. Though this photograph was initially taken in colour, after some thought, I decided black and white was best for this particular car photo. It was the scarred, dented, rusting state of the grille and all of the texture lent to it by years of waiting in this Texas field that had drawn me to the old car in the first place, and black and white draws our focus to this instead of our eye being distracted by the riot of colour caused by the oxidation.


≈ ≈ ≈ ≈ ≈ About Your Limited-Edition Classic Car Closeup Photograph ≈ ≈ ≈ ≈ ≈

• The limited-edition classic car photo you receive will not be watermarked.

• I personally sign & number the back of each art photograph. After 776 prints are made, the edition is closed and the photograph will no longer be available for sale.

• Professionally printed at the highest resolution on archival photo paper with a matte finish to be smudge, fade, and water resistant.

• Very few of my art photographs are a standard print or frame size; thus each print has a slender white border surrounding the photograph itself. This border not only allows you to buy a frame 'off the rack', but serves to lend a bit of additional protection to the actual photograph itself from any serious damage.

• A signed Certificate of Authenticity is included with each photo print.

• Signed photographs are carefully wrapped in acid-free tissue, sandwiched between pieces of foam core, and mailed First Class. Once I have a tracking number, it will be sent to you.

• My monitor is professionally calibrated for colour; therefore, the colours in your received print may be slightly different from what you see displayed online.

5 out of 5 stars (16)

As few of my finished photographs are standard frame size, each of my photographic prints has a white border all the way around the image. This not only means you can buy a frame 'off the rack' if you do not want a custom frame, but the white border does protect the image itself from errant fingerprints or other unintentional damage.
Since these photographs are my own interpretation of the sights as seen by me, I am sorry, but I generally will not make a colour photo black & white or vice-versa. Occasionally during post-production I'll be unable to decide which I like better and publish both, but while it does happen, it's not often, and the image I do release is not arbitrary, but the one I think best suits the subject and composition. Thanks for understanding this.
