           After creating an image, usually the next step is to give it a name or title. It's not always easy to come up with something that not only describes the image but also makes the viewer linger over the photograph to make the connection. This is where I need your help.
          Below is an image that I've been working on and is now ready for printing. This old car was found by chance while on a drive looking for things to photograph. When I came across this I felt like I hit the jackpot because many people in my area love images like this. After getting permission, I took numerous photographs of this car from different angles. This is one of the favorites.
         Now back to the contest. I am having trouble coming up with an interesting title for this picture. All you have to do is:   Sign up to follow this photography blog, ( I do appreciate ones checking in from time to time and giving some input).  Then leave a comment under this post   (click where it says 'comments')   with your suggestion of a name for this image. After a couple of weeks or so, I will choose a winning name. For your time and effort, the person with the winning entry will be given an 8" x 10" print of an image OF THEIR CHOICE from my website! Thanks for your help!
