What if I told you one of my favourite captures is of a duck?

Duck.

I absolutely love the colours from this shot. Only slight enhancements on this picture, a tighter crop and some contrast.

Shot at Lake Königssee, Bavaria, Germany.

Who Put that Bloody Tree There!

ERGH This happens so often.

Walking down the street and then a wild supercar appears.

Whip up the camera takes shots.

Tree in the way.

Not going to lie. I do like sneaky ‘spotted’ shots. Though this is an example of  a shot captured in Paris that has too much obstruction from the environment…But then again…could be worse.

Damn Trees.

Spotting Tips:

– Have your camera ready…Always.

– Have a trigger finger to quickly turn your camera on/off

– If you always shoot in M: The more shots you take throughout the day, the more ready you will be for a surprise – as your camera will be set to a kind of pre-set from your last shot.

–> If not, because you always shoot in M, you may be lucky enough to have a ‘sleight of finger’ – changing your aperture and shutter at incredible speeds!

– If you always shoot in Auto, P, S or A: The camera should be able to work its magic. Good luck though, it can be a bit of a mixed bag – Especially low light.

General Rule: Try to keep a high shutter speed to minimize blur and to get a clear shot…However, low shutter works well if you are a freak at panning. Something I can’t say I’m very good at.

You don't always need to have a shot of the whole car to create some atmosphere. 599 Spotted: London, England.

If you end up with a tree in the way…there’s only one way to describe that feeling…Bad Luck.

My Second Veyron

My Second Veyron

Right…. I wish i owned a second one.

The title of this post refers to the second Veyron I’d laid my eyes on – Spotted in a dealership in Berlin.

I had just arrived in the incredible city. Not just in terms of cars but a fantastic place to immerse yourself in modern history.

With Bullet holes and parts of the Berlin Wall scattered around the city, it was a truly unique and amazing place.

VW Polo GTi

One of the many one off pictures from Eurotrip #1.

No matter what car was on the road, they always looked good.  And Majority of them were little city cars like this Polo.

Bloody European cityscapes WHY YOU LOOK SO GOOD!?

From Paris With Love

Stereotypical French car in a stereotypical French setting. How lovely!

Citroen 2CV

– Taken in Paris while on a walk to explore the area we were living in. Stupid idea cause we were tired, it was cold and we were actually looking for a supermarket which we never found.

Ended up with a car photo instead – First World problems…

I don’t usually like Vtec…but when I do…

I don’t usually like Vtec…but when I do…it looks something along the lines of this Clean EK Civic with fully built motor, Skunk2 exhaust, new paint and riding on Works.

clean EK civic at Ison Industries

Here’s a sneak peek of my visit to Ison Industries, just across the road from Top Secret Imports in Western Sydney.

Ison is yet to officially open, but already some of their workmanship can be seen. You don’t need a Crazy workshop to do some crazy good work. Just need time, patience, passion and some tools! 😉

Visit and follow their facebook site at http://www.facebook.com/IsonIndustries

and look out for some proper photos when they finally open in a month!
