Probably one of my most favorite shots ever.

After this shot I started a list of cars I would like to photograph.
My main hope is to get my most favorite car of all time.

Porsche's "911 Carrera S type"

And nope I didn't have to look that up.
Yes, I am that big of a nerd.

If your wondering what my chances are.
There is within 10 miles from my home, the Porsche dealership for the greater Chattanooga area.


Canon 350, 28-105mm f3.5-4.5
focal: 105mm
aperture: f4.5
shutter: 1/320
ISO: 100
time: 5 hours ago.
Special stuff: Converted to b/w cropped, clarity added, and black upped. Done in Lr.

Oh, for those who don't follow anything car related, this is the hood ornament to a Jaguar S type year unknown .
And yes, people did walk by. And yes, they where wondering what I was doing.


  1. very nice hood ornament...
    maybe the people who were walking by...thought you were thinking of buying the car for your grandmother...:0)

  2. For a moment I thought it was a droplet of water. The whole thing looks so unreal, like it was made with Blender3D. Did you do anything special to the shot? I can see why it's one of your favorites.

  3. Very nice :D
    I love cars too but I havent quite mastered the car-nerdiness thing. I wish, though xD

    We have whats called the "auto mile" like two minutes from my house. its actually like 2 or 3 miles by now xD But its just a ton of car dealerships. sometimes i want to go over there and just take pictures of everything, lol
