X Concurso Inter-nacional de Elegancia
Vintage and classic cars
Palacio Real de la Granja de San Ildefonso,
24 June 2017
This Concours of Elegance, in the most wonderful surroundings of the former summer residence of the Spanish royal family, provided me with a different photographic opportunity to the grit and urgency found at motor racing events. Here I was able to consider and compose my shots, focusing on the design and detail of the vehicles, at times wandering into a visual approach that was more abstract rather than revealing. These photos represent some of the shots and vehicles I enjoyed the most and are not a comprehensive record of exhibits.
The event was quite low-key and informal unlike other Concours events I have attended in England where there is more pomp and champagne!
