Nice car, but why did they insist on having some non-descript commercial buildings in the background?

I’m glad you asked that.

I think the juxtaposition between car and buildings helps contrast the power and grace of the machine and the rigid structures and forms of the buildings. Both have been designed with specific but very different functions in mind, and putting them together in a single image helps the viewer appreciate that. Also, by placing the car in the foreground, one gets the impression that the photographer is trying to convey to the viewers that there is often a desperate desire to break out and escape the cold, bleak and sometimes harsh reality of our recent past. A powerful image I think you’ll agree, made even more stark and real by the use of a monochrome finish.

Alternatively, the Aston just happened to be parked there.

LOL my thoughts exactly, it was simply outside his detailing shop as he redid the glue in the leather roof lining as it had dropped a little. Hi also used it on his facebook page. He has been PPF ing a number of the new BMW m2 2 door coupes of late.

Similar to this two door Bertone design I snapped at the 2013 Kensington Garden display.

Looks like one of those Nelson Class battleships in the early 1920s where they had to remove the rear gun turrets as part of a treaty.

Its a good quote.
