Sometimes you just don’t know…

Wasn’t sure about this photo when I took it…

Still not sure about it now.

I sorta like it, but I sorta think it could be better.

Happens a lot when taking pictures. I throw it out there for your judgement… thumbs up, or thumbs down.


Ford Grille

A quick shot with a 70-200mm f2.8 with a Canon (shudder!) 500d Macro lens threaded on the end. This has become one of my favorite ways to do quick macro shots without having to set up a tripod, extension tubes, etc. Its a real pain-in-da-butt though to ensure focus is tack sharp and where you wanna be… I’ve learned my feet are the best method of focusing- slight step in, slight step out… carefully watch the subject and see if I got focus. Then rip some frames and cross your fingers that one or two are tack sharp.

I also have to offer a tip-of-the-ole hat to the guys that dedicate themselves to restoring these machines. I think like any passion its more a labor of love to breath new life into these cars.
