Beautiful old Bristol

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 8 September 2017 in Transportation and Portfolio.

Some pictures of cars taken in the Bents Park, South Shields at a recent Armed Forces Day event, all presented in relaxed HDR style :-) This is a rather gorgeous old Bristol (which one of my first bosses used to drive in the late 1970s)

I am still struggling to cope with the amount of pictures that I have to process, I seem to have re-found that passion to get out and about behind the lens again, however I should be able to fit in some site visits this week. It will be good to be back. You can also keep up to date with some of my activities on Instagram, just search for SouthShieldsCurly.

PENTAX K100D 1/750 second F/6.7 ISO 200 27 mm (35mm equiv.)

Use control and your mouse scroll wheel to zoom the picture/page, then control and 0 to reset to normal size.

Even though I may not be able to visit or respond daily, I always welcome your comments or critiques.

That is quite a fancy car! I would love to take a ride in it! Beautiful color. I am really glad that you are wanting to get out and about again with your camera! For me, it is my way to forget all of life's problems for a little while.

that is a gorgeous car. I don't think I have ever seen a Bristol in the US. The styling reminds me of early 1950s Jaguars, but the bumpers seem a bit more modern.

One thing comes to mind when I look at the picture. That car's bonnet is a mechanic's nightmare. There are not many jobs that can be done without it being removed completely. car and picture are great
