Anita (West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States) on 3 June 2013 in Art & Design.

Hood ornaments taken at a car show I recently attended with my son. Unfortunately for car lovers, I didn't pay attention to the names of the cars.
I wrote an article on how to apply textures here .

Le lévrier semble être le logo d'une "Lorraine Dietrich", quand à l'autre on dirait un hirondelle alors c'est peut-être une "Simca Aronde!!! Ils sont superbes. Belle journée.

Different and beautiful. I love the retro styling and the way you captured them against that blue, blue sky. Makes a great diptych.
