Albatros


no images were found

I haven’t posted an image from England in quite a while, so here you go.

This was taken at the Transport Museum in Coventry, UK. Coventry was once the center of England’s automobile industry and the birthplace of Jaguar.

Anyway, the Transport Museum is a great place to kill a rainy Friday morning, which is exactly what my son Ryan and I did. They have fantastic collection of antique cars, busses and bicycles. And they are tripod friendly (WOOHOO!).

There are so many cars that I had never heard of. So many that didn’t pass the test of time, Like this one. With a name like Albatros, you have to wonder why!

  1. Nice shot, Bob. Unfortunately, I can’t see the word “Albatros” without thinking of “Stormy Petrel on a Stick”. I’ll leave you to comb the Monty Python archives if you don’t get the significance 🙂

  2. I just love your composition on this one, Bob! The radiator grill of course is the star here, but the slightly out-of-focus cars in the backdrop there adds a huge layer here! Wonderful photo, my friend!
