Fading Glory

Fading Glory, originally uploaded by William 74.

A return to the famous/infamous oft photographed Cadillac out in the countryside. The car is in rural Illinois, and is a bit of a landmark in the area. It's not unusual to be driving by and to see a car parked by the side of the road, someone who has stopped to look and photograph this majestic old car. I like to stop whenever I go past and take a few myself. Like so many things, you never know when they'll disappear, so it's worthwhile to document while you can.

I took this on a late fall afternoon, the sun definitely on it's way to the horizon. I'd been on the road most of the day and stopped off to shoot a few frames. Peaceful and cheery, don't you think?

  1. Love love LOVE this one. The depth of field is perfect, the angle you took it from is perfect, and the colors are subtle, but fit just right... it all works together to make it look sort of dreamy.
