Wolseley Tail Lights (with beer can)

This darling old Wolseley sat in the scrub, quietly decomposing, and I happened upon it as the late afternoon sunlight was hitting the tail lights. Note the beer can, crumpled into the fuel tank opening.

Grace and Dignity: old fuel pump in a park

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Yesterday I visited the home of a couple in their eighties, who are as gracious and stately as their home, which is surrounded by open parkland before the landscape merges with their farmland.

As I drove in I noticed, not for the first time, this handsome old fuel pump, surrounded by deciduous trees; it put me in mind of a debonair Fred Astaire-type  in top hat and tails, so I gave it the black and white treatment.

I had the Olympus 15mm f8 body cap lens on, which I’m not really loving, but the light was strong enough for the images to be acceptable, particularly as I was shooting using the Grainy Black and White art mode.
