(This is an attempt to inject a little humor into the forum. A more legitimate entry will be posted later tonight.

This really is a photograph. However it is not from a digital camera but rather a scanned 35mm slide. I took a creative camera class from Portland Community College a few years ago and one of the assignments was to try a different film we had not used before. I chose Fujichrome Velvia to see how it handled red subjects. Print films fall flat in rendering red subjects.

I happend to drive by a fire station at Hayden Island in Portland, OR and they had an old 1950's vintage restored engine parked in front of the firehouse. I requested and was given permission to photograph it. The pictures were outstanding. (Velvia is an outstanding film) I decided to put a little humor into the assignment. This is a closeup shot of a side panel on the fire truck.
