Very Vintage!

This Republic Day (26th of January), we headed to Junior’s school to ogle the Vintage cars on display. I confess I was the most eager of our trio to make the hour-long journey to school on a holiday…all from my new-found motivation to jumpstart my photography! Once there however, we were all equally excited πŸ™‚ Maybe it’s just me, but nothing warms the heart quite like the sight of an old car! And these were POSH. Elegant, curvy, sparkling bodies with a latent grace that stole my heart and took me straight back to the days when they ruled the roads. I know there are some awesome machines in this day and age too, but these made me nostalgic for simpler times, when not only speed but form mattered; for the world of Poirot πŸ˜‰

The pics don’t do them justice. They were displayed in the harsh afternoon light and there were swarms of teachers and students everywhere. Some I just took with my iPhone coz that seemed easier! My only regret is that they weren’t driven around the ground! Now that would have been a stunning site. My favourite was a blue Daimler that had once belonged to Motilal Nehru, father of India’s first Prime Minister, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. That blue was something else! Royal πŸ™‚

Hope you like! Happy Tuesday People πŸ™‚
