Lady Luck

Something light for today. This is another shot from the car show I shot around at last fall. Don’t ask me the make, model or year of the car. I just remember it was it was a cool little car.

I think it’s a Thunderbird

In Cars, Olympus OM-D by Robert LussierLeave a Comment

Cars are not my favorite things to shoot, but I am a sucker for shooting vintage objects in general. Old cars qualify. This one is from a local car show last fall. A show I will surely return to, since the farm that held this one holds several throughout the summer. I can’t be sure …

ThrustSSC

In 14mm f2.8, Cars, England by Robert Lussier2 Comments

This is an image from almost two years ago. It was shot at the Transport Museum in Coventry, UK. This is the ThrustSSC (Thrust Supersonic Car). In 1997 it became the first car to officially break the sound barrier. It did so in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert with RAF fighter pilot Andy Green at the wheel. The display is …

Storrow Drive

In 15mm fisheye 2.8, boston, Cars, Cityscape by Robert LussierLeave a Comment

I was attracted by the slight bend in the road. I thought the fisheye lens I already had on the camera would give it just the right amount of distortion. I also thought the shot could benefit from more traffic. And even after blending about three exposures, I still think that. But I’m still very …

Holiday

In Cars, Olympus OM-D, Vintage by Robert LussierLeave a Comment

I’ll wind up the week with another shot from the car show I hit on Monday afternoon. This is a 1955 Oldsmobile Holiday Coupe. Or maybe 1956. I was having so much fun shooting the car show, I failed to execute my plan to note the make and model of the cars I shot. With …

Ford Thunderbird

In Cars, Olympus OM-D by Robert Lussier1 Comment

I have been neglecting my blog posts lately. I’ve been getting lazy and blowing off Mondays and sometimes Fridays as well. In fact, I’m lucky to get an image op on Google Plus and Facebook on those days.  It is due in part to the fact that I haven’t been shooting as much as I would …

The Ride

In 15mm fisheye 2.8, Cars, Uncategorized by Robert Lussier7 Comments

I know, for a non-car guy, I sure do post a lot of images of cars. There is a story with this one. My friend, Derek (who IS into cars) was gifted a one hour drive in a Ferrari through a company that does such things. Basically, a ‘Ferrari Sherpa Guide’ drives you – in …

300

In 85mm f1.4, Cars by Robert Lussier5 Comments

Another detail shot of the ’62 Chrysler 300. I’m not much of a car person. I’ve (mostly) always owned compact cars that get good mileage and are decent in snow. That said, I do love shooting old cars like this one. Maybe it’s the fact that all I have to do is shoot them. I …

Left Rear Quarter

In 85mm f1.4, Cars by Robert Lussier3 Comments

Another shot of the Chrysler 300 for sale up the street from me. I didn’t get a single shot of the whole car due to its location. It sits on a busy road across from an off ramp. The surrounding houses, strip mall and telephone poles didn’t present a compelling backdrop. I focussed on the …
