Default Metallic-Silver and Copper

I wasn't sure I could find anything for this challenge--but I came up with these without too much searching.

The first was taken at a national bi-plane fly in at our local, and very small airport. I photographed myself in the very well polished propeller of one of the bi-planes.
The second one I took of a penny that was lying on my kitchen counter when I was looking for something to photograph with a new macro lens.

That first one is priceless! And thanks for the penny, it reminds me of a picture of a dime I took recently and also gives me an idea of something to play with when I get a few moments.

That is one piece of clean, scratch free chrome! Excellent.

Its amazing that because you didnt shoot the penny from straight on that the very short depth of field doesnt allow for the whole penny to be in focus, just the middle part.

Every one of the bi-planes was like that--beautifully cared for, immaculate paint and highly polished. I was able to ride in one of them and had a wonderful time hanging out one side or the other snapping many photos on a beautiful summer day.
