    Nice Brett! I like the composition – particularly the sun flare an the fine detail in this image.

  • Thanks so much, Odille, you may have passed it while you were visiting; next time you’re down I’ll show you where it is. The Rolleiflex continues to impress with its spectacular optics.

    That’s a sweet photo!
    I nearly bought that truck some years ago…but by the time I had the money organised it had been sold by one day!
    Oh well…
    Nice to see it out and ab out in regular use though!
    Fantastic use of creative focus and a really nice viewpoint there!

  • Thanks Greg, I didn’t realise you’d tried to buy it but it is full of character, I can see why you would like it. It is good to see it out being driven regularly even of it is not very far. Thanks for the terrific comment,
    Regards,

    A fabulous old vehicle, love the camera details. Congrats on your features.

  • Thank you! I try to include contact details with most of my images because much of my equipment is old or unusual and is not seen being used so often these days. Your lovely comment is sincerely appreciated.
