A few days ago, I went to a farmers market here in Windsor, at the Sportsman's Club, and in addition to the produce, there was a small display of old cars and hot rods. This one is a bit of a "hybrid" as the owner saw fit to transplant the old Ford engine, with a later model Chevy one. I don't know much about these things, but I wondered if an old Ford 289 cu. in. would have worked just as well. Maybe it is just a cool thing to have a Ford body, and a Chevy "heart", I guess. I have nothing against either make, as I have owned both Fords and Chevys and was more than satisified with them all. At any rate, this is just my Black & White version of this old beauty.
If I am not mistaken, I believe that I had posted this photo as a colour rendition on my other blog site. Tonight however, I decided to see how it would look in Black & White. It somehow works for me. In the near future, I will be able to process my black & white film myself, and hope to be posting some of the images from my Mamiya RB67. It has been a while since I have felt "excited" about photography, and the thought of doing a little...or a lot, of darkroom work again seems to be doing just that for me. I hope if there is still anyone out there who is bothering to check out this site, will let me know. Hope you like this one......it was shot on colour Fuji Reala film, scanned, and converted to B & W in Photoshop CS3. It is from a series of shots that I did at Cape Anguille, Codroy Valley, Newfoundland quite a few years ago now.
