This is another shot in my “Over the Fence” series, which is in reality my neighbor’s backyard. A few weeks ago I posted how this came about and you can read more about it right here.
I cannot be sure, but this car appears to be closely related to an Auto Union 1000, a compact front-wheel vehicle manufactured between 1958 and 1963. It builds a bit of a picture in my head of the kind of old cars my neighbor likes, because another one I found was also a compact, or “micro” car, from 1953.
Hidden behind a walled in area except for this little portion of the trunk, I dug the contrast between the rust and the green grass and oleanders. And despite not exactly wanting to shoot at the time I did, I kind of enjoy the little dots of light coming through the bushes.
More to come at some point…and likely a second trip through that yard.
