Artist's Description

Here you were, thinking that the SMS is a recent phenomenon of the mobile or cell phone era. Back in 1927, this SMS was being propelled at 95 miles per hour on the race tracks of France!

This is the radiator cap and thermostat of the Salmson racing car, driven by Benzino Gasolini and Flashio Gordoni (see my previous captures of these heroes). The grotesque reflection is…. me! Taken at the recent 150 Years of Transport celebrations at the Bong Bong Racecourse on the outskirts of Bowral, in the Southern Highlands of NSW.

Nikon D80, Sigma 17-70mm lens, Program setting, 1/500 sec @ f 11, ISO 400, Pattern metering. Cropped & processed in PaintShop Pro X5.
