The story behind the image
I just love my car. It’s an Alfa Romeo 159 Sportwagon and on of the last models manufactured (in September 2011.) Every now and then I shoot images of the car, and in summer 2016 the light and the mood was right, and so I took a couple of close-ups, including this one.
Admittedly, I could have polished the car a bit better (there’s some visible dust at the top of the indicator) but all-in-all I like the composition. The 159 logo gets the center stage, along with the tiny Italian flag that I applied for a bit of uniqueness. I love the elegance of the logo and the fact that there are almost no straight lines to be seen. It’s all nicely curved.
