I appreciate the kind words, Carl. I've not driven it in mountains, none of which are near here. However, I can tell you from my experience on the flat that it's a very quick car. The chassis dynamics are simply incredible; this sucker takes a set into a corner like it has eyes, and it resists understeer like no car I've ever driven (sorry to brag, couldn't help myself).

Hey, thanks, buddy. I think B&W is a good idea; I'll give a try later today.

Thanks, Jord - the car was parked when I shot this. Unfortunately, I had to close the top; I was have too many close calls with birds in the state park in which I shot this.

Cool image Jer - good perspective - although as Jimbo said, the branch is a bit distracting. Maybe a quick bit of cloning?

But one thing is certain - you love that car!

Cheers

I appreciate it, Chris. Yeah, I enjoy the car; it's a barrel of fun to drive.

Hey buddy - I'm sure Mr. Lonely would love to meet Miss Divine, especially if her first name is Mercedes or her last name is M3!

No Porsche (pronounced Por-shaa ) should go lonely...or go undriven....for very long. It's very hard on the crankshaft bearings and more importantly the Porsche's self esteem.

I'm a credentialed lonely Porsche, specialist with many successes under my belt.

My fee is usually astronomical...but in this case I'm willing to make an exception. PM me quickly and I will start the therapy immediately.

I can only hope it isn't too late.....

Jer, I've been looking at this picture ever since you posted it and while I liked the picture (otherwise I wouln't have come back to it) it wasn't what I would have done with it. So, hope that you don't mind here is my version of it.

Thanks, Jan. I have to confess, however, I did spend a fair amount of the afternoon cruisin'.

Fortunately, it was lonely for only a short time and I find it enjoys posing for pictures, in any case. What a prima donna!

Your pronounciation instructions for "Porsche" brought back a memory. I grew up in red-neck sourthern Illinois where, when people used the word at all, pronounced it as "porsh" (still do, I bet). I heard the correct pronounciation the first time in '65 or '66 when one of my jazz heros, Stan Kenton, mentioned in a radio ad that he always listened a Craig stereo when driving his Porschaa. A few years later, when I was a poor grad student, my wife and I test drove a 4-cyl 912 (which we couldn't remotely afford), and I remember the salesman instructing us on the proper pronounciation. In this economy, the dealers don't care what you call it as long as your check doesn't bounce.

Heinrich, I like your version a lot - it gives the shot a whole new look and is a far better car pic than the one I posted. However, my original idea (successful or no) was to purposely keep the car diminutive, almost an incongruity, in the composition.

Your version makes me want to drive back and spend a little more time with the car in this location. Thanks so much for taking the trouble to give the picture a whole new look.
