A partially disassembled Volkswagen beetle.


Palm Beach, Gold Coast
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

This was a very sad looking convertible beetle in the back yard of 'Rent-a-Bomb'. I guess it is either a project for the owner, or a donor car for the other rentals.

Lens: Sigma 30mm f/1.4 EX-DC @ 30mm
Exposure: 1/15" @ f/1.4, ISO 6400 (0/1)
