The Design is in the Details

2

Frustrated by all the people milling around while I was trying to take photos of iconic historical cars at the Kirkland Concours d’Elegance on the shores of Lake Washington, I decided to compensate by getting up close to the design elements on these elegant automobiles.  Here is a sample of that work, which sometimes drifts off to abstraction.

The Concours that year was a tribute to Carroll Shelby, featuring five unique Ford classes.  So I’ll begin with a couple minutes of the “GT40 Soundcheck.”  Yes, the ground was shaking.  Turn up your speakers if you want to experience the thunder.
