Mercedes Benz

An iconic symbol that is probably recognized all around the globe; there are numerous global brands today but the automotive industry were one of the pioneers of globalization!

Speaking of quality of light on a post from a few days ago, I was coming back to my car from shooting airplanes landing in San Diego’s airport and I noticed these interesting shadows created on the hood of my car. Instead of packing up my gear, I just setup in front of my car and tried to be get a shot that was dead center with emblem being the only thing in focus.

  4. You’re nudging me to try to pay more attention to details like light and shadow and simple composition…. might start working on it since heat and tourists are apt to limit my travels until September. πŸ˜‰
