The Grifters

Was going to call this something simple like ‘Cruisin’, but the guys in the car (the hat, the arm out the window, dark glasses), reminded me of some sort of old movie where they might have been up to a bit of dodgy business lol :)

Actually just a couple of guys who obviously belong to a car club as a whole bunch of cool old cars roared down the street one after the other in South Perth, Western Australia.
By the time I got my camera out, only had a chance to click of one shot as the last one was taking off from the lights. Was hoping the composition was decent – ended up pretty happy with it – considered the split second timing.
