Contrasting Elements

A few interesting pictures taken with the Leica D-Lux 4.

1940's Chevy truck sitting out in the open air waiting for service. This photo was taken at a local garage that has a interesting client base. On any day you may see everything from a new Bentley to a vintage Ferrari. In this picture the brightness of the chrome grill is what caught my eye and is in complete contrast to the dirty windshield and faded paint.
Close up of the grill converted to black and white using Nik Software Silver Efex Pro. The reflections off the grill really jumps out at you.
Going back to nature a overgrown garden cart with strong filtered light highlighting the leaves and spokes of the wheel. You never know where you may find a interesting photo opportunity. That is one of the reasons I try to carry a camera with me. The D-Lux 4 is great for throwing into your pocket or purse.
I'm not sure who is more interested, looking through the glass a safe way to meet new friends.
