Ideas and Imagery #40

Leading lines can be a very strong compositional element.  I had passed this location every work day for over a year, and this old "Clipper" had been out on the street 90% of those days.  I struggled to be creative in shooting this car, however I always felt there was a shot there.  I just couldn't find it.

One morning I drove past this great car, but for whatever reason, I also looked at it in the rear view mirror.  The image above is not far from the scene I saw in the rear-view mirror.  After this scene materialized, I pulled my car over and shot some pictures.  I was relieved to finally have found a composition that worked well  with this car.
