Checking Under the Hood
Posted By: Sailor, 12-29-2016, 04:55 PM

I can hardly keep my hands off my new K-1, and - since I like to do automotive photography - I pulled my 911 out of the garage for some pics this afternoon.

My only frustration with the 911 is that you simply cannot see the motor, which is tucked behind the rear axle, unless you lay on the ground for a glimpse of the headers. The best I can do is raise the rear panel and look at the cooling fans. Here are some pics that reflect that frigid experience.

More importantly, I am so impressed with the performance of my K-1; so what if the thing is too big, too heavy and has too many gizmos. Unfortunately, that performance frustratingly doesn't translate - in my hands at least - when posted on the forum via Photobucket.

Jer, I still visit this site to check in on where I started my photography. I have been busy with my hobby. [check out my link to my web site and click on New Images to see latest work] I still have a couple more years of work. I than want to do my photography full time. I may even go back to school!

Life is good and having fun just going out shooting. Planning a trip to Cuba soon with two other photography buddies and may go back to Iceland in a year or so. Just trying to get my daughter through her Masters. [seven months to go and I get a pay raise!]

Goal in life now is to just get better at my hobby and try pushing myself to try bnew types of photography. Always room for improvement.

Best to you and may you continue to enjoy life to the fullest Jer. Miss our interactive decisions on this sight. Cheers and be safe my friend. JIMBO
