Shadow Shot Sunday - Chrome and red



I am back for this week's version 
of Shadow Shot Sunday 2. I made a visit to the Ansonia's Fire Museum and its motorized memorabilia within. I had posed about this museum back in 2012, but I was taken even more with this 1946 Mack firetruck . There is something about the old styling, round fenders (wings) and chrome grille and Mack bulldog on the hood. Not art-deco yet not modern, it is so retro cool. Naturally, shadows fall under and around the vehicle so it is (to me :) a wonderful subject. I bought a new droid phone and these pics worked out without editing - I may try more indoor shots with it again...
