MACK is the swedish word for gas staion, again i have tweaked the colors to get this old postcardish expression

you managed it perfectly! LOL
When I saw the little thumbnail in the gallery I couldn't believe my eyes: I thought the 50s or 60s have come back!
true "vintage" colours, true spirit of the Past :) A very enjoyable "postcard" :)
my very best wishes,

I like your work. Good colours management, excellent composition, fine oldtimer. Legendary car!
Have a good time!

That old station really looks authentic! And so do the man and Volvo too. Would surely be a great place to visit.
On this upload I give one recipy of making photo look dated. Of course different papers and inks fade different ways.

Anders, good to see one of your photos float by again in the gallery, and inspire me to have a look at your recent gallery shots. I like the way you have treated this one to look old. That faded colour really suits the subject, and the fellow was good enough not to wear some trendy fashionable modern clothes. Hard to believe you took this a couple of weeks ago, it looks 1950s (with the possible exception of the cyclone wire fence!). Great to see.

your picture puts a smile on my face! Wonderful old world ambience well executed. My grand father used to have a 444.

Interesting to see this Swedish icon in its contemporary surroundings!
This car was certainly manufactured while Sweden was driving on the left side of the road, but it seems like the steering wheel is on the left side...
The image conveys the time mood very well!
