Cable Air Show - Part 5 - A jumble of parts and one whole car. Some from planes, some from cars. They are the pieces I thought were interesting. Mostly because of color and lines.

The last car was in this post [photoblog.com] last summer. I found out that the paint for this car is $1000 a gallon. A GALLON! Can you imagine?

Right rear of a red car, converted to b&w with a red filter.

I would have polished this hubcap but I thought the owner might get a bit upset. ;)

      Great work and excellent takes! I can see great concepts from figurative and explicit subjects! Thanks for sharing your sight!

      You are killing my husband (yellowperil) and I with your photos of the airshow! They are SO AMAZING!!! I loved everyone of them . . . can't get enough. I think this might be your calling, of course, Spike might be your calling too, and then there is flowers. Too many callings.

      Thanks everyone!

      BTW- #7 was cropped to an 8x10 from 8x12. And the last one was cropped to 4x12 from 8x12. None of the others were cropped.

      $1,000 bucks a gallon !!! yep I can believe that. We found out yesterday at a bike Tandem shop while shopping for a new rear skewer that a custom paint job for a tandem $167.00 a gallon for a certain type of paint!! For a tandem bike!! Yes my husband and I ride a tandem plus our mtn bikes.. Cool post!!

      It's a whole other world. I can't envision a gallon of paint costing that much money. Great series.

      Splendid collection of shapes, colours and lines, some of them almost like abstract paintings. #2 is my favourite. It's a bit scary to think how much the owner probably loves that car.

      Wonderful shots again! I've thoroughly enjoyed this entire series.

      Your comment about polishing the hub cap really made me laugh! Wonderful shot though, even with the dirty hubcap! =)
