Relic of the Depression Era

Old Ford, Danny's Classic Cars, Elko, South Carolina  © Doug Hickok


Miss Daisy's Sunday driving car or
Bonnie and Clyde's getaway?

Imagine what modern autos will look like in 80 years.

  23. It's good to see the creative use of DOF in the hands of a master...and highlight that wonderful old car.

  24. What a stand out image, Doug! In/out of focus areas plus colours make this unforgettable. (You can't go wrong with a bit of decay and nostalgia thrown in together, either...)
