(Day 241) - Red Riders

Have quite a few old toy cars and today I wanted photograph my red ones. Had tons of fun with these as a kid. The red ones were always the fastest in my imagination! :)
How wonderfully boyish:)!

Even as an adult we all know that the red cars are always the fastest!

they're the most stolen color car. (random fact, I know)

yes, red definitely goes faster. great composition

Love it! I have a similar collection - looks like yours are the good old heavy, real metal cars. They're so much better (and deadlier) than the ones you can buy today. :)

The wonderful composition tells the story of your childhood so well!

@amandal - Thanks Amanda!! Glad you noticed! Our conversation the other day inspired this shot! Haha.

@gigiflower - So true Sam! All I imagine is rubbing burning and fire trails they leave behind! :)

@francoise - I've heard! I'm glad I installed some good alarm systems on these! Haha!

@cruiser - Thanks Chris! I will have to compare the speed with my other colored cars one day.

@sarahsthreads - The first one on the left is pretty much all plastic but the other four do have metal pieces. They hold up exceptionally well and happily I was old enough to know not to throw them at my little sister. Lol.

@grammyn - Thank you Katy! These cars bring me all kinds of nostalgia. I can still remember all the racing sounds I made when I played with them. Vroom vroom! :)

@cjphoto I got a chuckle out of that! childhood is fun to revisit isn't it?

Believe it or not, I used to have a massive matchbox car collection! Sadly, I gave them all away. Wish I'd known how much fun they would have been to photograph for 365- I'd have hung on to them! Fun shot!

@grammyn - Haha, happy to provide some laughs! It sure is! Amazing the simple things that make childhood a joy.

@olivetreeann - Thanks Ann! Matchbox cars are awesome! Too bad you gave them away. I was so close to getting rid of these but once I started this project I had a brand new use for them. They're fun to photograph but judging by your photos you sure know how to find plenty of fun subjects to shoot!

Yes, my kids still believe that red cars go faster! Nice shot.
