Grandpa's Truck

It IS before midnight here, so I'm calling this good. ;) I just got back from being out of town all weekend, so I'm getting in right under the wire. This is a picture of my dad-in-law's old truck... I had a lot of ideas for vintage (one of my favorite things ever!!) but I didn't have the weekend to pull them off.

I love this picture... (sheesh, i feel like i've been saying that a lot on this challenge) but really LOVE IT! I love the colors... wow, you could not MAKE rust spots more perfect than that either! I love the faded, i love the white, i love the sea foam green, i love the angle and focus... I LOVEIT!

I LOVE old cars- what a great pic to end this competition with. I love that color and the rust. It has so much personality. Your lighting is so cool on this, with the shadows and everything. TEACH ME!

Teryn, I just lucked out with the lighting! The truck was parked in the shop, so I opened the garage door to let in more light... that put a lot of light on the front, but kept the back in shadows.
