Rolls. I grabbed this photographer as he grabbed the old Rolls Royce in Cambridge, England. His shot was taken quickly, but was carefully framed, although he was only using a compact camera, as was I. An illustration, perhaps, of the male fascination with mechanical design, especially when it's good design, and especially when it's old! I like the people in the background: the lady with the handbag, the other lady taking a photo while her husband looks on, the people walking out of both sides of the picture. I helped the image a little in Photoshop, dropping the background slightly more out of focus, and darkening it.

Technical: Colour negative film, Minox 35ML.
