How it was Did – - – Canon G11 compact camera – wide-angle lens 6mm – I shoot RAW – ShotoPhop for layer blending – Photomatix Pro to seamlessly bond three (3) exposure into one HDR image! – tripod – acoustic instrumentalist to provide ambiance for the mob of us ~:0)
The Story of a Car – - – Most of us don’t think – I could stop there for a number of folks, but let’s keep going for the Gipper. As I was saying Most or Us Don’t Think About the people of a hundred years ago. I remember one of my students yonks back asking why people round about 1910 walked so funny. ??? Yeah in all the archival film of the era kids in class never dreamed cameras might have been the difference – the people have always been the same. Makes one wonder if this good looking Ford Model T Racer has always been the same. ~:0)
U know the kid who asked the question wasn’t dumb. That student was pretty bright. Just young and inexperienced he was. Often we never dream a technology has changed over time b/c the thing still seems to work the same. What’s me point? Only that in the last hundred years we’ve been in a position to record humanity’s march “forward”. They had cameras – we have cameras. They drove cars – we drive cars. They worked hard and had children – we drive cars – Ha!
There’s not a lot of fundamental difference in automobiles over the last hundred years. Now roads – yes – they’re much improved. And I hear the contrarians out there shouting Lamborghini! Still got four wheels a motor and seats. I really believe the Ford Model T Racer would be more fun to drive. Specially after watching the super-car crash video over at Hot Rodney’s sister site. Pretty sad stuff in that video. It’s a pretty awesome responsibility driving a half-million dollar, 500 horsepower machine in traffic. And that crazy video over at Hot Rodney Funnies is the pudding if ever there was proof!
Sure we’d be terrified to do a hundred miles per in this whack Ford Model T Racer – but wouldn’t it be fun. Sorta makes sense of the rat rod craze going on now. Hot Rods have always been for the fun adventurous type. And let’s not forget – it was a madman that made and drove this wild ride just as much as those super-car drivers we’re dodging today. Point is – every tub rests on its own bottom. That means – let’s get after it U mad impetuous lot! ~:0) VivaChas!
