Shadow Shot Sunday 150 - Monaco


Cars are not a typical feature of posts on this blog, but when you are working in Monaco, and they are parked for display right outside your school, it is a little hard to avoid or ignore them.....


....And I have to admit that even I was more than a little charmed by the real vintage cars - the Bugattis, Maseratis, Alfa Romeos from the twenties, thirties, and forties complete with their starting handles!!


The cars were all on display prior to the Historic Grand Prix which took place here in Monaco last weekend, and the cars were from every decade from the twenties to the eighties, and obviously drew a very large crowd of car enthusiasts....


So for all you car enthusiasts out there in the blogosphere, feast your eyes on the following...



.....And for more shadow shots this week check out Shadow Shot Sunday.....Enjoy!!

These care were conceived and built by men of passion. Artists that were mechanical geniuses at the same time. Today, the building of cars is devoid of passion, these examples were made with a loving artistic touch - and perfect in shape and shadow for this meme of artistry!

Wow! What an incredible collection of vintage cars!
And, I am curious as to what photo software you use for your collages. I used to do mine in Picnik which is gone and Picmonkey does not have that option.

Those may be old race cars, but they still convey a sense of majesty and POWER!
