The Citroën Traction Avant was a range of mostly 4-door saloons and executive cars, with four or six-cylinder engines, produced by the French manufacturer Citroën from 1934 to 1957. Approximately 760,000 units were produced.
Whilst front-wheel drive and independent suspension had been well established in the mass market by Auto Union and others some years before, the Traction Avant pioneered mass-production of a crash resistant,[unitary, monocoque body. Additionally, the car was also an early adopter of rack and pinion steering.

Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taking during my hike nearby Babberich, a small town in the Netherlands close to the border of Germany.
Time
It was late afternoon, on a cold and windy day, and it was going to rain soon.
Lighting
The sky became cloudy, causing an atmosphere that suited the subject perfectly.
Equipment
My Canon EOS RP, with Tamron lens 18:400 mm.
Inspiration
I love to drive and see old timers, no matter how old and deteriorated they are, they keep always a certain dignity.
Editing
Just some cropping.
In my camera bag
Camera with spare batteries.
Feedback
Go out with your camera, and hike a lot.
