B&W Bad Boy
Lens: DA 15/4 Camera: K-5 Photo Location: Lake Jackson, TX ISO: 80 Shutter Speed: 1/45s Aperture: F11

Tonight I played around doing a B&W conversion of a pic of a Chevy truck I grabbed at a recent auto show. I have little interest (OK - no interest) in trucks, but I thought this character might make a decent B&W photo, so I pressed the shutter button. In the PP I didn't hit the sweet spot I was seeking, but I noticed a tiny reflection in the bumper of what appears to be - it's hard to imagine - a devilishly handsome photographer.

nice conversion Jer of what looks to me is a '52 Chevrolet. Don't you just love those chrome grills, viewing the stance of the photographer, I would say this is a Porsche owner who enjoys running through the gears, manual style.

Thanks, buddy. Remember, I'm a Yankee - I just live here now (although I may leave if they don't change the law about front plates). My DNA contains the S-P-O-R-T-C-A-R sequence rather than the B-I-G-T-R-U-C-K sequence.
