  1. Great entry and gorgeous photos Martin! Love how the Mercedes-Benz hood ornaments are acting almost like sundials.

    1. Thanks Theresa – a sort of mini project I did a couple of years back photographing Merc bonnets and grills in different lighting conditions.

    1. Thanks for the song frizztext – very good πŸ™‚ Can’t afford a Merc myself – think I’ll stick with the old Peugeot for a while yet.

    2. Appropriate response for the post, Fritz … the song brings back old memories of Janis Joplin. Your daughter did a great job with the vocals, and you did as well on your guitar.

  2. Very, very cool, Martin…
    I bet Mercedes-Benz would love to have these…
    they would work as covers for literature… or print ads… pretty much any kind of ad, really!

    1. They’re welcome to use them as long as they pay me πŸ™‚ It’s amazing what you can do with some ordinary daylight, weather, and steady hands. I wonder how much they pay their Industrial Photographers to produce the same type of shots in a studio?

      1. LoL – Perhaps not… A friend of mine is working his way up in professional photography – specialising presently in sports. He’s now working for an agency and that means that all the shots he takes at a match where he was working for the agency are not his to use or publish. Add to that the ‘bitchiness’ about which photographer stands where on the touchline (there is a very serious pecking order) and I think I’ll maintain my amateur status Bob πŸ˜‰

  3. The contrast between your photos is marvelous, as it is in the individual photos … I love the raindrops in your second shot! πŸ™‚

      1. The Orples are opened to suggestions, seeing how EVERYTHING is new too them. Olivia is adventurous, whereas, Oscar, is more apt to just hangout and follow Olivia’s lead … which may be to who knows where? My second book includes a rainy day, now that you mention it. Thanks for asking.
