Industrial Desire




Our local art gallery has had some amazing scale model concept cars on display, produced by students at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit.




These quarter scale models were brilliantly made from special high-density foam and automative paint.




Master J first saw this "Industrial Desire" exhibition Friday on a school excursion for Design and Tech. He was keen to have another look today so we all went  and also viewed the other exhibitions, all of which concluded this afternoon.







 Some models contained details of their interiors too.







The art gallery has a lovely little street-front garden. Today the waterlilies were in bloom, I couldn't walk past without catching a photo of their natural beauty. What man produces is quite stunning, but God's creations are even more marvellous to me.

I'm expressing a little sigh of relief looking at your site - ahhh. Such a good time out experience. Sorry I haven't been 'present' during the last week, it was so busy (my Mum & her husband came down to look after Miss R) amongst other things that I just had to hold my hands up in surrender fashion and cease photographing and photo visiting. Back again - well, that's the intention anyway, so good to catch up on your photos, appreciated all of them as usual -and wish I had time to comment on the especially outstanding ones. Thrilled to see another of your photos just before on the shoot.edit.submit site - they know they're stuff. And also pleased Master J's initiating into school life went smoothly. Hope you're going ok.

You are so right. The nature is full of wunders.

A very interesting exhibition.

I agree about God's creation being best...but those cars were pretty cool. It looked like a fun event.

Nice looking cars, but the lilies get my vote.

There is a boy I know who would have liked to have seen the models - and his dad would have liked the flowers!!

Awesome cars. Maybe one day Master J will have something on display!

Amen to that last sentence!

Someday in the near future, we'll be driving those cars, I bet.

I agree with you regarding nature's creations. Hard to duplicate. :)
