Well Jay, the ol' Buick is still looking pretty good after four years. I'm guessing those aren't the stock rims. How come you didn't get a nice right side shot of this beauty? Looked like you had the room to do it.
Mainly because of the dappled shade over the right front. Half of the right side of the car would have been in tree shadow. My main priority was getting better photos of the left side, since the profile I use on my "Mega List" thumbnail directory page was not very good the first time. Beyond that, these photos are 3 years old. I had just lost use of my trusty Kodak Z980 about one month before and was still learning to use my Canon 60D. Maybe if it turns up again I can get you some right side pictures! :D
Ah, okay. Yeah that would be good if you happen across it again. Your photo work is great, especially considering you have to more or less get in and out fairly quick. Er, this that correct? ;)

I'd say that I usually spend 5-10 minutes on a car depending on how much I like it or how difficult it is to photograph (lighting, traffic, etc). Sometimes I'm there longer if I have to speak with an owner and/or explain what I'm doing. If it's a sketchy area I hurry up, but I don't shoot anywhere I'm afraid someone will shoot back.The place where this Buick was found is a quiet street in a nice area just off downtown, and I've briefly spoken to the owner when he came into my work one day.
