Default ....right before the rain

there was the Friday gathering at the parking lot on Little Road.

With the impending rain about to happen it was a good opportunity to catch some interesting light contrast which usually only consists of very harsh late day sun.

I had intended to do a 35mm MACRO run through shooting only small details but instead bolted on the FT 9-18 and did the usual stance photos but of some different cars that came in.

I find the FT 9-18 is a remarkably good lens for the E-P3 and for me the size/balance is perfect, the AF is 'good', it fits very well for how I use it.

........again shooting in 'M' mode with ISO locked to 200 for these

....my first intention was to look for and photograph details, the '57 ornament has always been a favorite to me and this one really stood out, thanks for the comment, I like it too.

My intention was to do mostly details such as the '57 hood piece and I did do a few but when the cloud cover turned to stormy it provided nice background and light right before the rain started so it was back to the cars......... I'll do the detail fun next week.

I like these shots and the light kept away all the usual reflections that can show up when shooting a freshly waxed car.

I like the green and black hot rods, you managed to capture the stance in such a way that they look fast just sitting there!

Looking at the green one I am surprised to see the tow hitch on the back... what would you tow with it? I am guessing it is there more to allow the car to be pulled then having the car pull something...


and the Maserati is hungry... om nom nom... what a mouth on the front of that thing!

Nice color and sharpness Bob. I like the air scoop on the green hot rod. At first I thought it was a 671 blower but no belt.

The red Bel Air-type Chevy's are simply my favorite classics. Beautiful cars.

I don't get excited on the '57, for me I like the '55 best of the Chevy's from the 50's & 60s, although I did have a '59 4-door vista hardtop that I liked a lot, it was white with the baby blue interior.

BTW the '57 in the photo is not a Bel Air but is a 150, it is a really nice car.

I didn't think it was really a Bel Air, that's why I used the term Bel Air-type. The body style is similar to the Bel Air, but it looked a little "plain" compared to the Bel Air's I've seen. Thanks for confirming.

I want to say I have seen it mentioned the "150" is a somewhat hard to find model today. I have a '55 model from the Franklin Mint, the convertible, in my office that was dad's.

BTW, I was over at the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens this past Saturday, took I20 home and had to stop at Fuzzy's for lunch. Love those enchiladas!
