I like it, too! Cars don't normally spark my interest, but this one is so well shot, and I love the appearance of it coming out of fog.

It's a "Simca Versailles" around 1955.

Is the fog done in post processing? I like the picture quite a bit. The line of the fog just looks a bit too geometric.

What a great shot.

Beautiful image! Just astounding, perhaps because I like the photography itself so much and the fact that the car is so wonderful.

Do you have more shots from Havana to share with us? Because of ludicrous govt policies, we cannot yet visit, but I'm hoping to get there before McDonald's and Starbucks blankets the place with yellow and green plastic.

Merci beaucoup pour vos chaleureux commentaires...

Yucatan je te dois quelques explications quand l'origine de cette photo.
Je n'ai jamais mis les pieds Cuba, que ce soit pour des vacances ou pour prendre cette photo. En fait, il s'agit d'une photo ralise lors d'une concentration de vhicules ancien prs de chez moi Thoiry prs de Versailles.
Cette voiture n'a probablement jamais entendu son chauffeur parler espagnole, en effet, il s'agit d'une "Simca Versailles", une veille voiture franaise qui au contraire des amricaines du pass n'a probablement jamais vu la Havane mais son look tait tellement cubain que je n'ai pas pu m'empcher de la faire voyager.


Thank you very much for your warm comments ...

Yucatan I owe you some explanations when the source of this photo.
I've never set foot in Cuba, whether for vacation or to take this picture. In fact, this is a photo taken at a concentration of old cars near me at Thoiry near Versailles.
This car has probably never heard her speak Spanish driver, in fact, it is a "Simca Versailles", an old French car, which unlike the American past has probably never seen Havana but her look was so Cuban that I could not help but make the trip.


For your information, the original picture


Tks for your comments.
