Firstly, sorry for my absence in recent times from here, and from commenting on other blogs, but sometimes my other life just gets in the way. Hopefully I’ll be able to catch on soon.
Today though, I was able to take a trip to Penola to follow up on a project I’m putting together on wine….. and no, it’s probably not going to be what you think. More on that down the track as it comes together.
Just as I pulled into the town though, I caught sight of a great many vintage vehicles converging on the park in the main street – it turned out to be a vintage car rally from interstate and they were having their morning tea break at Penola. Twenty five vehicles of varying ages with fifty people and no, I won’t say anything about THEIR ages!
I only had time for a few shots, but as I did them, I was thinking of the book I’d been reading by Freeman Patterson on Thinking Sideways – and here was the perfect opportunity to try something out. Instead of trying to avoid sunflare, I took a chance on embracing it – just to see ‘what if ‘ . In post production I played just slightly with levels, and here’s the result. Personally I’m happy with it, and think it was worth nearly getting run over by a careless modern car driver backing into me as I crouched low in front of this vehicle. Well, almost anyway………
