This trailer — well, technically In guess it is classified as a motor home — sits on the grounds of Smuttynose Brewing Co. It is something of an icon for the brewery as it was used as a prop on the label of one of their flagship beers. As I heard it, some years after the photo shoot, the original owner was selling the motor home. They made Smuttynose aware of that fact and Smuttynose bought it.
Technical notes (for those interested): This is an HDR panorama shot comprised of 21 frames. I used the Nikon 24mm PC-E lens shifting center, left and right capturing seven frames in each position. Tonemapping was done in Photomatix Pro. Styling was done in Photoshop and onOne Software’s Perfect Photo Suite.
Just for fun, here is the beer label. And no, I am not one of the models, although I do enjoy Smuttynose IPA.
I love the motor home, in the UK we have caravans, and this looks like an older style caravan that has been stretched 3 times its original length. Great photo and a fascinating subject!
A stretch trailer! Killer shot, Bob, I love both your representation of this fine unit, and the unit itself! Time to scour eBay and see if’n I can rustle up a used one of these….
I used to live across the street from this trailer… On Gov. Hill Rd., in Eliot, ME. I love the beer, but miss the trailer in my neighborhood!
This trailer was actually owned by my great grandmother who lived in Eliot, Maine.
Her last name was Rogers.
