Greyhound

Greyhound Hood Ornament

In the 1930s, Ford used this elegant greyhound as its cars' hood ornament. I love taking detail photos such as hood ornaments and early radiator caps. They are small artistic works. I was lucky here that a blue tent in the background could double as a blue sky effect.

  1. Excellent shot! I love the crispness – the greyhound’s outline is so sharp, and I love the way the red colour runs along the underside of his body.
