Fave Photographs and Travel Photos.

Postby Lols » 03 Dec 2018, 18:57

Just think it may be nice if some want to put up some fave pics, maybe, your garden or vege patch, travel photos, maybe just like to talk about photography, I looooove photography, bought myself a really good DSLR full frame, Nikon D750 and then some....lenses (gulp) not cheap either. So looking forward to some pics, and btw...did I say I love photography.....well, I do :smitten

Okey dokey, I'll start, ummm...well, I like to take photos of cars at car shows, as in classic cars, and this one was a corker, crazy car, I think this was up in Queensland, at the Carrara market.

And this one is the cutest hottest little Veedub I have ever seen. This was at the Rats n Tats Rockabilly car show at York On Lilydale.

I don't mind barn or farm finds, all rusted out, then done up as such, I think that takes a lot of hard yakka to get it looking so good

We got one in almost original condition, doing a RWC this week, after getting engineers report for the air bags etc. Trouble is, had to get seat belts in them, even thought it's over 25 years old and LHD, a bit of a puzzle having to do that.
Looks a bit tired, but almost original. I will put a pic up soon :bgrin

Here is something different, I had my first (and only since) taste of Bali Cat Poo Chino ! Anyone else ever tried it?
These poor Civets, they are in cages, and look worn out, they poo these coffee beans, and then it gets roasted, to make coffee, I believe it can sell up to $50 in some countries per cup.I
I paid $5 on this little bus excursion, to try it out, it was actually nice, but....I didn't like the way them poor little critters were. It wasn't a nice feeling to be honest.

It's under $2.00/gallon. I'd gladly drive it. It probably gets better mileage than my wife's V8 pickup.

Not my wife's, but identical.

It's a little busy for my tastes, but interesting. Do you drive on the wrong side of the road like England?

I like that. What year is that? Some dealerships have made giant car vending machines. They sell you the car and give you a token to pick it up from the giant glass walled vending machine when it's ready for you the next day. You put the token in and you see your new car delivered to the output of the machine from all of the other cars. It's weird, but kind of cool.

We look at it like being a treat :bgrin
Ego swells up when driving something odd like that on the road, and all the wow looks and thumbs up etc. It's a real buzz. :thumb Gonna look for a rock-a-billy outfit now! :clap

Something like these gorgeous outfits!
