Saw this striking hood ornament on a 1946 Ford and couldn’t pass it up. Wanted it against an ideal background and VOILA my 70-300mm VR lens on my Nikon D50 found one. Captured at one of the last car shows of the season at Rockton ON, Canada.

Views and comments always welcome.

    I remember the hood ornaments. I wish todays vehicles had them. You are bringing back some great memories Ron. Nice shot! Good that you found a nice clean background. It gives it some pop.
