Anyone who knows me or has been following my photos for awhile will know I love photographing hotrods, wrecked cars and trucks.
I realised today that I haven’t posted them here on my website so today I decided to rectify that little error.
There is a combination of things that appeal to me about hotrods and wreck, even though they are at different ends of the ‘shiny’ spectrum. I love the colours and shapes of rods, the engine being visible is fantastic along with all the chrome. With wrecks I love the texture of the decay and thinking about the possible stories connected with this abandoned vehicle. Although not all are abandoned, some are still in use, just not the ones in this post.
Please feel free to look and let me know what you think or share the link via Facebook or Twitter.
Thanks in advance guys.
Yellow chevy. Blacktown, NSW
I spotted this ramrod, whilst driving through an industrial area, had to stop and grab some pics. St Marys, NSW.
This would be my favourite rod!

This originally started as a black & white. I applied some different Photoshop actions, just to see what it would look like. Nice retro kinda feel.
Playing with different PS actions.
I have started flipping articles into a Raytookthis Flipboard Magazine.
It will be mainly photography related with articles that I find interesting or inspirational.
I’ll throw in some DIY and technique related articles and other randomness.
Please follow this link (or use the Flipboard link in the top right corner) and let me know what you think.
Just going through some old shots and found this one.
Seems quite relevent as I flipped an article into my Flipboard magazine about flower pictures and I commented that it made me realise how you must make the flower the focus of your pic.
Flower taken in Portland, Oregon.
I am constantly amazed by birds and wildlife in general.
I have heaps of shots of birds and even more of where the bird just was, trying to capture one before it flew off.
This shows the importance of looking up!
I couldn’t sleep that way.
Great Instructable showing how to really easily set your Diana up to take sprocket hole photography using 35mm film and a pen lid!

Once you have done this, go to the following link to know how far to advance the film after each shot. It also has a chart for Holgas. This link is also in the Instructable.

I have set my Diana up and am currently running some film through it. I’ll post pics when I finish the roll.
The camera club I go to, had it’s annual contest tonight.
I entered four photos and my shot of the Chicago skyline got a highly commended (3rd place) in the ‘altered images’ category.
Really pleased with the outcome, as there must have been at least 100 photos entered and they were all awesome shots taken by a bunch of talented photographers.
Will have to do better next year!
Nice shot but better without colour.
Please share if you like it.
