‘Two sides …’ – another idea

Another variation on telling a ‘story’ with two sides, although this one takes liberties with the definition of story. I came upon a classic car (Ford Thunderbird) and shot a set of details to be arranged as a panel for a club competition.

It occurs to me that this is a story about the surface glamour of this type of car, all glossy paint and polished chromework (and rather a lot of it). The alternative ‘story’ would be to look at all the dirty oily bits under the bonnet and below the car, that actually make it ‘work’.

The practicality would be finding a classic car owner who is sufficiently proud of his car to keep the exterior polished, but not up to concours d’elegance standard with the engine bay similarly polished.
