The Technology Requirements – - – Canon G11 Compact Camera – Wide-Angle Lens 6mm – I shoot RAW – Orton – I use PhotoShot for layermania – I use Photomatix Pro to polish up me HDR ( saves hours) – and I use other stuff like reflectors, professional dog trainers and a wet-nurse on duty ~:0)
The Happy Tale of Woe – - – The Chevrolet Corvette in its various incarnations has long been touted as America’s only sports car. That moniker has long been contested by other U.S. manufacturers. This current crop of vettes are very nice – yet – my fave Corvette has long been the 1958. Olewhat’shername refers to the ‘58 Corvette as the one on which I cut me teeth. That readily implies that being my first, it’s the one I’ll always remember as the greatest. She could be right about that sort of thing. She usually is ~:0)
After viewing Jay Leno’s Garage episode featuring the 2014 Corvette Stingray I must say that is likely to prove to be the greatest of Chevy’s rides. And as was pointed out on JLG – the Corvette is the most affordable super-car in the world theatre. He is likely right in his opinion b/c he certainly has the means of comparing any of the great cars.
I’d like to say that this particular Corvette convertible is a particularly nice ride for date night. And it is hard to beat for an evening cruise. We stopped at sunset on a popular ridge out our way in the Texas Hill Country to enjoy a nice sundown. We set up a mob of reflectors to get some additional light on the camera side of the vette and snapped a few for the Gipper ~:0)
The sky performed one of it’s better miracles for us as the clouds went alight in those short moments before the high clouds are lost to darkness. From this promontory we set our course for one of our fave restaurants b/4 returning home for some well deserved rest after a long day spent with America’s only Sports Car. These are the things of which memories are made. And though I might have enjoyed the evening more driving a 1958 Corvette convertible, this 2010 was mighty fine. As for ole JuJu she prefers this vette over the ’58 that she remembers only b/c she caught her finger in the door. Our memories of that night and I assume many others differ on memorable details – Ha! ~:0) VivaChas!
