I'm not a mobilist and don't even own a car. But it was an interesting experience to visit a swap meet. Those who live and breath old cars had all kinds of old car parts, publications and lots of other hard to imagine stuff for sale.
And also parking lot was worth seeing with old cars, some museum quality, some with all marks of decades of use.
Mercedes also visible in the reflection belongs to Timo Lehtonen, who has taken my profile image.
Please, have also a look at the workshop for the front view of this Czech built, museum registered Tatraplan model.

This is interesting capture. I find myself looking at your image and somehow my eyes get stuck on the inner image only - I find it hard to see the whole wheel!
Maybe that's because the inner part has much more light and color.

Lovely view! I agree with shir that it's hard to concentrate on the whole image as the inner circle has so much to offer us in terms of views and colour. I really like this capture of a world within our own and the fact that even though it is a mirror portrait we aren't stuck on the image of you but rather captivated by the whole scene. A shot that works really well IMHO :D

He he nice idea I see that you have found an old but still working fisheye, I guess it has manual focus but delivers a pleasant and deep view ;-)
Have a nice day,

Great shot. I love reflections and I like how these are distorted by the curve of the hub-cap. well spotted.

You did a very good job here. Details of the reflection inside the polished hub is so good. I can tell that there is a W124 Merc at the back and great lenswork with this shot.
TFS and best regards,
