Now that's a clever shot Jilly!
B&W works perfectly for this too.

Nathalie - thanks. Actually it's the background that is B and W and the rest isn't. You can just see colour in the car - the brass along the top of the bonnet, for instance. I agree tho, overall, it does appear to be a B and W photo.

That's a fantastic emblem for the car. Even better than the Rolls Royce Flying Lady. Wouldn't be allowed now though, as the health & safety people would say it's too dangerous. Although is being stabbed by a metal birds' beak any worse than being run over?
