Theme # 33 "Break the Rule of Thirds"

I was in Riverhead today taking pictures and I spotted this restored 1933 Packard in absolutely mint condition. These old spoked wheels enticed me to take a few shots but here is a good example (IMHO) to break the rule of thirds, golden ratio or the golden spiral. Are not these wide white walls the neatest. I had a 1949 Ford coupe in HS with wide white walls like this. I know I'm dating myself, but I truly love the old stuff.

  1. This is a GREAT image. Love the big whitewalls! I'm sure BillZ will drop in for a peek... :-D

  2. Snow white for sure! This is a wonderful find - I am sure BillZ will be drooling all over it! :)

  3. That's great Eddie. Great subject matter and an gorgeous photo. What rule of thirds? ;-)

  4. Massively modern tread for white wheels but regardless a feast for the eyes.

  5. I think you've given us a perfect example of a shot that begs to break the rule of thirds. Well done...

  6. When I needed to work with a company that was a Microsoft dynamics training. Then I knew that I had found software company that means business.
