Hell On Wheels

“I’d ban all automobiles from the central part of the city. You see, the automobile was just a passing fad. It’s got to go. It’s got to go a long way from here.” — Lawrence Ferlinghetti

Photography Challenge: Toy With Reality Part 2

The parameters of this project were to photograph a toy and make it blend into it’s environment as though it were the real thing. Because I love vintage cars and I used to drive an old Dodge Dart, I decided to take a macro shot of a die-cast toy 1971 Dart Swinger. I then placed my husband Keith behind the steering wheel against a cosmic background, and designed a custom license plate.

Here’s my original miniature car macro shot used in this composition:
