When photographing cars I have learned to go for detail shots to avoid distracting backgrounds. Seldom do I find a vehicle situated with an appropriate background that not only doesn't distract, but also adds to the look of the photo. So I frame tight, like on the cute little rear end of this A Model pick-up. Check out those shapely fenders!

I made this photo in April, 2011, so this tree is a little bigger now. The bright green of the new spring leaves against the rusty metal facade is what caught my eye that day. The colors are almost exact opposites on the color wheel. I thought the contrast of textures was interesting too.
I know we've still got several weeks of summer heat to go, but I've already got Fall on my mind. I'm lusting after that first morning when I step outside, and the humidity is down, and the temperature is in the 50s. Yes, my favorite season is when the air is filled with colorful leaves and footballs!
