Default shadows

Shadows are right in the first picture. So is the sunlight on the right tyre.

Btw, there is half a Contessa here in Pune coming out of the roof of an accessories shop in Koregaon Park.

Also a half cut Maruti 800 as well in another.

Default Do not share his taste

Can't say that I share people's taste in this stuff. I want my house to look like a house and my vehicle to look like a vehicle. If my Sumo starts looking like a British bungalow, granted it would be an improvement, I will trade it in on a used bicycle.

It's a PS job. Was hardly convincing, right from the first look.

Sun-light on a an object in the sun will definitely fall on the object in a natural way.

Bad photoshop-ping, again, I guess. The bricks and the jack are missing in the first photo.


BTW, where is this house located ?

He has the photo of the Jeep with the cement plastered around it and with a brick under the wheel and a jack supporting it. Isn't that enough prove it's not a PS job.

And yes the sun light will fall in a natural was on an object placed in the sun.
This is what made me believe that it was not PS job.


The only PS done is to remove the brick and the jack plus paint the cemented portion as seen in the first photographs. The Jeep and it's position is 100% real.

I have confirmed the authenticity of this through a friend of mine. He knows the Jeep collector, the owner of the house. His collection includes fifty plus Jeeps from 1942 to 1988.

The Jeep in the picture was a scrap vehicle with no more life in it. The lights and the blackout lights also work.

Sankar is right, the famous Jeep collector is none other than T-BHP member "UBS". He was featured in this month's Autocar and the picture of the Ford GPW in the wall can also be seen in the thread below:

I can feel the level of intrest the gentlemen has that made him to have a jeep stuck to the wall of his house, it unique for me and at the same time I am not sure to be happy or sad looking at the beautiful jeep being there. I hope this idea could have come from a jeep which is not road worthy, why would some one spoil or cut the jeep and do this.

UBS sir can you please post some of your jeep pic and stories. I am a jeep enthusiast and would love to know more about the jeeps.
