Some alone time with a Bugatti Type 57 Atalante

Bugatti Type 57 Atlante St. Michaels 20

There are moments where circumstances align to create unbelievable opportunities, things that aren’t “supposed to happen,” but do anyway. Being prepared, in the right place at the right time is everything. So when I found myself on the Maryland shore on a picture perfect day, all alone with a 1936 Bugatti Type 57 Atalante, I knew I had to seize the moment.

I spent well over an hour pouring over this magnificent machine. A few other people strolled over to check it out, but for most of the time it was just me and this rolling French masterpiece. How often does anyone get to shoot a car worth well north of $10 million all alone in such a scenic location?

I mean, a shoot like this, with a car of this caliber, likely isn’t something I could even organize at this point. But in the situation as it played out, the opportunity presented itself at the St. Michaels Concours d’Elegance.

Enjoy the contrast between the stark, and dark, Art Deco lines of this Bugatti in the lush landscape of the Eastern Maryland shore.
