Colors in gray
I've often read that the time to do photography, the best times, are the so-called magic hours right after dawn and right before sunset.
There is a charm to the golden, buttery light found at those times. But I like the light at other times as well -- harsh mid-day light, leaving origami shadows folding over the edges of things; the wet gray diffusions of low-hanging clouds and rain.
Paradoxically, the hard bright light made this Hemi "J" a bit more mysterious to me by pooling shadows around its engine. The light also raked some ghostly hues out of the primer, revealing some of the colors in gray.
