Long Term Parking

long term parking

The Golf

Parked in Autumn


Normally when I make my different seasons diptychs, I will look for a landscape, like the old tree, (the best one if you ask me), or a building, like the horse farm earlier in the week, so this diptych is a bit different. I first noticed the Golf back in November. It was parked next to a garage in Jordbro and covered with leaves, so I stopped for a fun autumn photo, I remember using the 50mm lens. Since then the car hasn't moved a bit, and so yesterday I stopped for a winter version. This time I used the 18-55 mm lens, but I managed to remember from where to shoot, it and it came out OK I think.

Steffe, That's an a amazing diptych!! Who would have thought that such a "moveable object" would have provided such a great subject matter!

I cannot imagine a car not moving for months. I wonder if there is a dead body up in whatever apartment goes with that parking space.

Your diptychs are always fantastic and very special Steffe-Style. That one is nice, great idea.

This one is fascinating. I always marvel at your ability to take photos from the same place at very different times. My memory isn't that good.

I told you before I really enjoy your 'before/after' stuff. This is a very good example.

A car for all seasons!

A cool duo of pics. Cars like that seem like statues sometimes. Rarely moving, set in the same place for long periods of time. It sometimes makes you forget how they look when they move on the road.
