Filling Up at Flo's

Wide angle lenses aren't usually associated with detail shots, but depending on how you frame the photo, they can be used for that purpose. In the first photo below, the gas nozzle and pump form the main subject of the photo, and yet, they are theming elements of a larger overall scene, and highlighting the pump brings attention to this nice detail of Radiator Springs.  The angle also draws the eye toward the background and then back again, bringing some interest.

The second shot isn't really close enough to the pump to be a detail shot, but it does have the camera shooting into the sun, which despite being an elementary rule in photography to avoid, produces a nice result when you know how to compensate.

Beautiful golden hour at Flo's brings breath-taking sunlight!
