I used to work at a place that had something to do with cars. While I was there, my photography thing and my work thing seemed to overlap and I got to take some pictures of cars we were reviewing as well as a whole lot of car shows. The kind of pictures that worked well there weren’t usually the kind I liked taking but I always took a few for myself. Things like this and this. I just dug back into the vault from the same show that the other two came from and found another one I liked.

Only thing is, I can’t for the life of me remember what kind of car it was attached to. Anyone know at least the make if not the model? C’mon you car buffs out there – show me what you got!
Getting back to the photo nerd thing, the bokeh is nice. With so many symmetrical reflections I really like the pattern across the top of the hood. This image has been chopped up a bit and I don’t have the original so I don’t have the EXIF information, but I’m pretty sure I took this with my 50mm lens just because you can count the number of diaphragm blades that make up the aperture – 5, just like the 5 sided bursts of light you get in this picture.
