Took this image when all the old cars were on display the day the Tall Ships came into dock. These 2 beauties are a Dodge & Mercury. Decided to turn them into B/W and then added a frame using iPiccy.

Also thanks to E J aka: 100k_xle advise & help, this is the final product.

Thought this would be a great B/W Challenge, hope you enjoy the posting. Here is the original version in colour Click Here

Have a Great Day, ♥ Skates

Be back a little later, going out for a long walk with my friend who has the day off.

Sharp image Skates and the old timers look lovely. It certainly will make a very good entry for the B/W contest.

People are like cameras--sometimes they lose focus.

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust

The B&W treatment suits this subject perfectly and this will do so well in The B&W Challenge.

There some American guys who spend an awful lot of money restoring ancient autos, even if I had the money I wouldn't do it. Despite this I always love the results, & think it's a great tribute to restore an ancient wreck because it pays respect to the past.

Nice work Skates, & all the best in the b/w challenge. (o:
