Hello everybody!

In motion, I think of locomotion.

Old classic grand touring car... Porsche 911S 2.4L



Motion & emotion with the Peugeot RCZ

Both with Optio P80.

Thanks, samtr87!

Nice shots, G.T. I particularly like the first one: a classic all right.
And the yellow headlights make for a nice French accent.

Laurentiu Cristofor, nice feel of motion here.

Paulh, looks like 'trying to control motion'. I like it.

Nice entries, folks! Well, this topic is a bit of a stumper, have several that I could
post with illegal cameras! But here's one shot yesterday behind my place using
a Canon A490, $26 special I recently got from ebay:

parting of the ways


If I come up with something better, will take this down.

I had not noticed the yellow headlights before you told me, Bart. That's a kind of "French touch" but of course it's slowly disappearing.
Those 911, although I've never driven any (but I'd like to) always appeared to me as a kind of faithful (due to their reliability), but demanding mistress (because of their weight balance). I hope I won't shock someone with my digressions.
Nice canal shot. Seems to be about 11 to 13m wide, Freycinet gauge?

Alredy many nice entries.

And now I have reached the end of my personal capacity to quote...

@ chubasco: Don't take the cows down, its great, gave me a bit of a giggle. Looks like someone had a real hissy "Well if *thats* how you feel, Mum, I am NOT going!"

@ samtr87: Well shot, sam. Do drummers always look so serious? Or is it just that its such hard work?

@ RyanW: Interesting choice of subject for motion, and I am glad to see another GRD3 owner here (though mine wont be from the GRD this time)
