It's a good idea when shooting something at night to spend a little time during the day getting familiar with your subject before it gets dark. When there are a lot of subjects or objects, it's an even better idea to zone in on what you are going to work on before the lights go out and hope you will be able to find your way back. It's harder than it sounds.
In this case, it was my last day/night in the yard, and this particular car caught my eye. I put it on my list to come back to for a night shoot.
The inside was pretty dirty, although since the driver's door was missing (which is why it's so dirty), it made for easy access to shoot into the car.
As is typical, the list of cars I intended on getting done that night was long and the clock was ticking away. I had more to work on in other areas, so I decided to just shoot the side panel.
Here is the daylight capture of it:
And the night image:
This is a 1970 Buick Wildcat and was the last year this car was made by Buick until 1985.
If you want to see something cool, check out the Google images of the 1985 version which was a concept car:
As always, I appreciate your visit and hope you are enjoying the last days of summer.
