The Spirit of Ecstasy   1 comment

On a walk through Brooklyn I found a parked Rolls Royce (yes, parked and unattended!) and had fun experimenting with some close-up photography of the hood ornament, called ‘Spirit of Ecstacy’ , designed in 1911. Here are a few of my favorite takes.

  1. We had a Silver Shadow when I was growing up and I remember as a kid thinking she was beautiful – now I know her name, I think she is even more beautiful! Great shots – you captured her “spirit” exactly!
