Retro Style

We took Claudette and Célestine on a photoshoot one night recently. At 9 pm no one is parked outside the rather grand Hôtel de Ville in Preuilly, so we arranged them artistically and snapped away. I took this photo, but didn't like the original. Simon has tweaked it in photoshop to get this pleasing retro look.

  1. Very nice and 'grand' photo. It'll look super on your LVTT website. Btw, who drove whom ? (or doesn't 'whom' apply to cars, even when they have great personalities like these lovely ladies). ;) Martine

  3. Did you know that there is a Traction enthusiast in Pontlevoy.
    He runs the cafe/bar there in the main street and also has several model tractions in display cases.

  4. They look absolutely magnificent together. I agree with Martine.

  5. I'm waiting to hear about the first LARGE party you get when you have to use both...
    that'll be a good convoy to see!

    Simon, when you have the time...
    try a pre-war sepia version of this...
    with a bit of fading at the corners/side...
    with a nicely treaded toy tyre and and a black inkpad...
    you could then keep a stack of souvenir postcards "signed" by Claudette or Celestine in the respective glove compartment...
    they'd get a lot of circulation once people got home again...
    might generate more custom.

    oh, and clone out that bright highlight top right...
    it is distracting...
    pulls the eye away from the two beauties!!
