Wordy Wednesday #144 “Photographing a Six Wheeled Car ”


Yes, it’s got six wheels and way before the Tyrrell P34 tried six wheels in 1978, Hispano-Suiza did it first.

Hispano-Suiza was a Spanish automotive and engineering firm known for its luxury cars but this car, a 1924 Victoria town car, was built in the company’s French factory and cost $35,000 at the time. I shot this photograph in (Denver’s Forney Museum of Transportation) to show the extreme length of the car and give some taste of the ambiance of the Forney. Shot originally in color with Canon EOS 60D and Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM (at 18mm) with an exposure of 1/40 sec at f/2.8 and ISO 800. It was then processed in Silver Efex Pro to produce the warm, nostalgic tones used here.
