Not sure what the purpose of the green wires is but there were several on this machine. Can't believe they were holding it together. Matt

good shot Matt - maybe to hold the parts in place - to aim them if you will...

Thanks Piet. The wires looked awfully thin and crumpled to be effective, but I guess what works works. Matt

you are probably right - can't believe a thin strand like that would be effective...

Rusty stuff: '66 Chevy Chevelle

The story:

Dave Tubman lives on Tubman Road with his chocolate lab, Duke, on land originally bought and farmed by his grandfather. The original parcel was very large and was divided between two sons who then divided their parcels into two parcels for their sons. Dave doesn't farm but is a carpenter and works with scarp metal. Some time ago, a friend in the next town noticed a Chevy Chevelle parked in a driveway that hadn't been moved for several years. With the passing years and extreme weather, the car gradually deteriorated; Dave's friend, aware of his interest in scrap metal, knocked on the front door. When an elderly lady answered, he inquired about the car. She said it was her son's but he went off to war and never returned. She kept it as a memorial as well as a symbol of hope but was now willing to sell it.

Dave bought it about five years ago, removed the engine, windows and some of the interior, created the driver. He strung red and green Christmas tree lights along the frame and white lights around the headlight sockets; he lights them during the Christmas season. He promised to send me a photo of the "installation" in the snow with the lights on.

Some very nice shots here and a great story to boot. But like Steve says, that last shot is a major winner. Though it is great just as it is, you should try all kinds of processing just because it’s so cool and it’ll be so much fun!!

Thanks Steve, Minnie. I did try a number of views in Topaz, some of which were pretty bizzaro, but thought they departed too much from reality. But that's the reason for experimenting, I guess. So, I will go back and post anything worthy of others' viewing. Matt

Minnie, The wood looks too yellow for me, but the may be its real tone. I am used to the grays here on the Cape from all the salt air. Like the composition; it confirms some that I have taken and gives me support. Thanks. Matt
