    I love the gentle gray tones in this.

    Just looking at the front wheel, I'd guess it's an XJS from around 1990.

    Close, it is an '82. Hum, maybe I should title it, "Jerry's green '82 XJS Jaguar."

    Two views of a 1970 American LaFrance Cab Forward Fire Truck, along with a story:

    This truck was displayed as part of our local JayCee's annual Christmas Tree Sale, and while I walked past it daily, I wasn't particularly attracted photographically. But a few days ago it wasn't raining, it was above freezing, and I decided that I might as well "give it a shot." Really 3 reasons: it would give me some 4x5 practice (about 1 month since last used), the Forum has a suitable thread, and it had an interesting problem, the busy background (such as the power pylon growing out of the truck). I figured the only thing I could do about the background was to shoot wide open (f5.6) and hope it would be suitable out of focus (didn't really work).

    I made the side view first (2 exposures), then moved the camera for the 3/4 view. At which point I started cursing, I saw that on my Canham DLC the removable bellows had half-way removed itself from the front standard and both exposures would be light leaks. So I grabbed my allen keys, re-positioned the bellows, retightened the offending screws, and took the next two exposures. (I suspect flying back from Texas with the camera after the holidays, the vibration loosened things.) Then went back and re-took the side views.

    Anyway, here are quick scans from my 8x10 RC work prints, HP5+, Pyrocat-HD, 150/5.6 Rodenstock. I played very slightly with contrast (no burns or dodges) in the scan, which I think is why the truck is darker in one image than the other. I cropped portions of foreground and sky which added nothing to the image.

    That's good! The background is very painterly from the Verito, and old cars don't look bad with soft focus too!

    Thanks Jason. I didn’t realise it was you at first.
