Deep in the Forest / 4

I think this might have been a Triumph Herald, or was it a Hillman Imp??

Anyway, it’s seen better days.

Deflated Imp?

  1. The composition looks beautiful!

    • Sue

      Not my favourite, as I found the contrast was a bit too much, and the sky is a bit ‘blown out’…. But glad you like it! There will be another one of this car, which to my mind is more atmospheric

  2. Triumph Herald, or Hillman Imp? Old age Triumphing Here, or machine over the Hill, man, more Imp-ortantly? Anyway, loving your sequence of cars-once-elegant-graveyard…

    Sorry, sad bad puns ceasing forthwith.

  3. The Imp was rear-engined. I can’t quite tell from the photo, but if that’s an engine at the front, then it’s a Herald.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    • Sue

      Ah, I forgot about the rear engine…there will be something in the next image which should clear this up, but you’ll have to wait a few days!

  4. It looks quite heraldic to me! Rather sad as that was my first car and I still like to see one, a live one that is 🙂

  5. Ooh! Very nice curves, even if they aren’t meant to be there. The angle is just right.

    • Sue

      Hmm, the curves weren’t part of the standard design features! I like this angle, worked well from a composition point of view, but the contrast in the scene meant it was not one of my better images… I must try a monochrome conversion… When I post the next image of this car, you’ll see why I like it better

  6. They are wonderful but all of them in the same forest

  7. I’ll go for Herald, my first car too!

  8. I see we’re both in the forest today, but seeing very different types of “growth.” 🙂

  10. Such a terrific find. Wonderful photo of it too. 😀

  11. You are so good at cars, Sue. I had no idea except for the Anglia.
