Baby You Can Drive My Car ( Shrule & District Vintage Club 4th Annual Show )

A friend of mine is a lover of cars (Opel mainly) and will be showcasing his Mantra at the opcoming Shrule & District Vintage Club 4th Annual Show at Castlehackett Estate, Belclare, Tuam, Co. Galway this weekend. I’m going to head along, it could be a great chance to get some nice photographs. After browsing through some of my car photographs I’ve noticed that I tend go for abstract rather than the standard photos. This is because the standard photo (for many subjects) has been done a million times so trying a differnet style makes it stand out somewhat.
