Shameless Intellectual Thievery
Lens: DFA 28-105 Camera: K-1 Photo Location: Kemah, TX 
Posted By: Sailor, 04-15-2017, 06:24 AM

I'm very much taken with Bob Harris' excellent B&W photo of a hot-rod mill that he posted a few days ago. I decided to shamelessly steal the idea of using B&W for such a photo, and converted a picture of the flat four in an early '60s Porsche 356C taken some weeks ago.

Just remember, Bob: Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Continuing in the same metallic vein - but there is something spectacular about machinery - 'More Power' as Tim the Toolman would frequently say.

But it's - by far - the better half.

Thanks, buddy. However, I must say that when I read the word, "chrome", I felt the earth tremble beneath my feet - dear departed Porsche aficionados turning over in their graves, no doubt.

Great shot, Arjay, of what Tim would call a real Bad Boy.
