1967 Oldsmobile convertible. I can't think of anything else to say because I find it hard to visualize this otherwise nice car.
Those of you who have seen my photos for awhile know I never get too artsy-fartsy with my car photos. I like to photograph cars as I see them in real life, on the ground. That's what I know and love, that's how I remember them when they were new (back when we had to fight off the dinosaurs to keep them from stomping the cars at the dragstrip). To me, an Oldsmobile in this position and attitude usually indicates that a horrible accident is about to happen. But every once in awhile someone tells me I need to try some different photo angles.
So I tried something different. I don't like it.
Funny - others do it and it's somehow OK, that's their choice of how to take the photo and I'm good with it. But when I do it, it makes me unhappy. It ruins the perspective of the car for me, because that's not how I see cars. I guess being an old curmudgeon is settling in on me. So much for artsy-fartsy in May 2010 when this photo was taken at the Salute to American Graffiti show.
I remember now why I took it this way - the cars were parked closely together and my normal photo angles would have blocked this car so I futzed around to get just this car in the photo. But I still don't like it.
