Like an old photo ... with the sight of this Simca Aronde of the sixties. A photo taken in 2018 on the edge of the Bassin d'Arcachon, at Cap Ferret next to an oyster farmer's cabin with a privileged view of the famous Dune du Pyla that can be seen in the background.

Witaj Jean!
Interesting place, nice view.
The very popular Simca Aronde is impressive.

Bonjour, cher Jean,
Cette Simca aronde semble bien résister au temps et à la mer !
La voiture est placée dans un écrin de toute beauté.
Très bonne journée.

Hello Jean,
Good horizontal format and an excellent composition. The classic car in light blue is well placed in the centre, next to the house and the yellow flowers. The sand dunes and the lake make a great backdrop.

Ciao Jean, lovely composition with fascinating old car, wonderful natural colors, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Jean,
It is difficult to imagine that there are many of these models still in existence; this one looks in quite good condition. A simple composition where the different elements come together to form a harmonious whole. Pleasant lights and natural tones and very good sharpness.

Bonjour Jean,

L'étendue de l'endroit crée de la profondeur. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails de la Simca Aronde et de la maison. La lumière donne de belles teintes aux couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.

Bonjour Jean
Le scoop avec cette ancienne voiture dans ce joli décor d'eau et de sable, bien cadrer avec le buisson fleuris et la partie de la maison
Bonne journée

Bonjour Jean,

C'est bien vrai qu'à l'époque on prenait en photo nos choses les plus importantes, comme la maison avec la belle voiture neuve devant comme pour se prouver et aux autres notre valeur.

A very nice oldtimer, the photo can be converted to BW so you will have this atmosphere of sixties :)
regards Ryszard

Hi Jean.
A wonderful photo that takes us back to the past with that well preserved Simca, which I remember very well, the landscape is enchanted with the flat that arm of the sea and the dune.
Good management of brightness and sharpness.
Magnificent image I like it.
All the best and have a good day.

Hello Jean,

The Simca Aronde of the sixties, was very popular also in Belgium.
A nice quiet image, with car and old house together.
You create depth and perspective too.
Sharpness and clarity are real amazing.
Very well done, TFS.

Best regards,

yes, every detail could be part of the past. curiously the tiles in the red roof are exactly those we have here in the older houses.

take care


Hello Jean

Does look like a step back in time. I guess this was a treat to come across. Interesting. I did do a workshop to further your view. TFS

Hello jean,

I recall old cars like this from the 1960's. The holiday home at right is s bit more modern. A fine view of this impressive bg dunes across the inlet. Tfs!

Hi Jean
The pretty car is the star on this composition.
Nice lighting and colors.


Hello Jean,
Apart from the vivid colors, this photo could be from the 1950s! Do you have any idea what that car might be? 👍

Hello dear friend and have a nice time
and a happy new day
I liked this title like an old photo
I love old photos bringing memoriew
from the past from childhood from parents
who left from this life
delicate and pretty photo
the beauty is into the siplicity

Ciao Jean
la foto sembra uscita da un film degli anni 50, più vicina a Maigret che a noi.
Piacevole composizione, l'auto è sicuramente il soggetto che attira l'attenzione.
Buona domenica

Hello Jean, there is nothing to suggest that this is 2018, so your title is perfect.
Colourful scene.
The Dune du Pyla is a place I remember well; thanks for the memory.
Regards Jean.

Hi Jean
oh man, that car is incredible, the fit and finish of it is so evident. its as if the car is brand new. Love the curves and rounded shape of its roof. a very pleasing scene with warm light and perfect exposure. cheers

Salut Jean-Saint.

This one deserves a special attention, a scene that reflects upon the old good days. I feel a very nice atmosphere in the frame, kind of nostalgic, the car is a great suplement to it. Tfs!!!

Bonjour Jean,
This is a really beautiful old photo in modern quality! I think your camera has a built-in time machine module...
