'Golden Vespa. Say wa?'
Today, I'm presenting a little display of big-bike rider's arrogance. Sorry, just couldn't resist the temptation. When I've found this golden display of serious kitsch, I just couldn't help myself to experiment a little with the idea of kitsch. Vespa, as you probably know, is a legendary Italian city motorcycle driven to work by people in suits.
The lastest Vespa models are especially tacky and glittery coming off in a totally wrong way. Unless you are a teen girl, I'd say stay away from them. I would never sit on this miniature abomination of a transport vehicle. I've never felt a single good vibe about it. But, hey it's just me, maybe you love the thing and then, by all means, have a ride of your life. :D
The person who handpainted Vespa in this golden colour is a hilarious joker and his idea easily got through to me. What's more, using that instead of a seat in a coffee shop simply goes beyond incredible. It's almost like shouting this is the only thing Vespa is good for. :D The palette of pastel colours I've used in the colour scheme works hard to fortify this idea.
Notice the low contrast treatment. I did that to level up all the funny colours using a considerable strong "let me laugh" syntax. Very suitable for the brand. I've also added a tacky lens light leak circle effect to emphasize it even more. I don't do this often but it was the right tool for the job. In this one, I've used all of my bad taste to push the photograph as close to kitschy as I could. A perfect object for such a fun experiment. :D
