Fine close-up, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray, it was the best way to do this car as there is lots of other 'stuff' standing round it.
An interesting perspective on a formula 2 car Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chad, it was the best way to do this car as there is lots of other 'stuff' standing round it.

Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, it was the best way to do this car as there is lots of other 'stuff' standing round it.

I have no interest in racing cars but like this graphic design very much.
Brian Walbey: It was the best way to do this car as there is lots of other 'stuff' standing round it. I have been a motorcycle racing enthusiast since 1961 and have only a passing interest in car racing, this museum is only about 15 minutes from home and I went on a group visit with some other men from our church, otherwise I wouldn't have gone.

It is interesting to see how the shape of the cars have developed over the years. The last proper cars to my mind were in the era of Jackie Stewart!
Brian Walbey: They seem to change year by year, but once they started to get all these wings and fins etc.they started not looking like recognisable cars IMHO.

Great POV, though being totally ignorant about such cars, I don't know if this is the front or the back!
Brian Walbey: This is the front Anne and its shape made it ideal for this sort of picture.

Good angle Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, its shape was ideal for this sort of shot.
I imagine that the modern F1 driver would regard this as old fashioned smile
Brian Walbey: I suspect they would Alan, these days they seem to have pointed snouts!
Good balanced image. Of course the pov makes sense with other stuff that would be around it.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Jacquelyn, this was the only angle I could use in order to not get lots of 'stuff' in the picture.
