The green canopy turned the chrome hood mascot to gold.

Transformed by the light


At a car show I fell in love with the various hood ornaments that decorated the sleek streamline forms of the bonnets. The cars were parked amongst the gum trees and the bright sunlight filtered through the leaves.

This hood ornament was just a bright white chrome before the light changed it into a streak of liquid gold. The effect of the reflection of the green leaves gave it the appearance of golden glass hurtling over a pool of blue.
