Old Car Craze: hunting for treasures

image

A huge auction of a private car and motoring memorabilia collection was held in town recently, and though I missed the main event I did get a look at the remnants a few days later. The old Volvo, out of focus in the background, grabbed my attention somewhat.

Christmas Day Drive: dilapidated Mazda

image

Like most Aussies, a certain amount of driving was involved on Christmas Day, which was the hottest since 1998. This dilapidated old Mazda sedan was spotted on a farm in the Wimmera, south of Horsham, and worth turning back for a quick snap before continuing to our destination.
Shot with Fujifilm X10, no editing done beyond adding a border in Snapseed app. I enjoyed getting this little camera out for Christmas Day snapshots, having used the Panasonic GX7 (itself a fairly small MILC camera) exclusively for a few weeks.
