On that early morning drive up to Luckenbach for the Hot Rod and Car Show we passed through a town called Sisterdale. We stopped for breakfast there and naturally gravitated to this Model T Delivery Truck parked across the street from the Winery.
This restored Model T is a thing of bewdy to behold – it was perfect – ready to roll out filled with wine deliveries. It looked showroom new. The long morning shadows with the tin building and fields beyond seemed the perfect setting for this old workhorse at the beginning of a new day.
I can’t tell you the importance of learning to shoot photos using the RAW format – makes life a lot easier for the working pro or talented amateur photog – I used my Canon G11 (a compact that shoots RAW), processed it using Lightroom and tone-mapped the image using three bracketed (-1,0,+1) shots in Photomatix Pro with final tweaking and correction in PhotoShop – 1/250, f8, iso 80, 6mm wide-angle lens – though shooting a nice truck like this one with one of the new digital point-&-shoot cameras would still be mighty satisfying on a Saturday morning ride up to Luckenbach for a day of Rat-Rodding ~:0) VivaChas!
