Classic car makes an iconic moment—self-titled “Follow at Your Peril“, which David Ingram captured on Nov. 9, 2013 using Canon EOS 5D Mark II and EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM lens. Vitals: f/5, ISO 400, […]
What a strange place to find a classic: Carport along a nearby alley. So which of my neighbors has been hiding this lovely? With no license plate. Apparently good condition. Cool color. Best of all: Steering wheel on the right side! It’s a British beauty.
Had there been a license plate—out of respect for the owner’s privacy—I wouldn’t have stopped to capture the moment. No identifying information encouraged me to take license (ah, hum, dumb pun) with Leica M10 and Summarit-M 1:2.4/50 lens.
This week I pick up the pieces of early May and return to business as usual—eh, hopefully. I’ll recount events chronologically, offering context for near absence on my personal site and complete disappearance from BetaNews, where my last story, as of writing here, was April 27, 2016.

Our selection comes from Henk Sijgers, and the first post-production photo of its kind to appear in the series so far—a composite, shot in Times Square and Columbus Circle, New York City. He says: “Both […]
Perspective and technique decide today’s selection, shot by a photographer who gives no other name than Wendell. Is that to emphasize his importance or to protect privacy? 🙂 Self-titled “Star of the Show” matches, as he […]
This car is in my neighborhood. I shot the photo using Google Nexus 5 with HDR+ mode. Colors and contrast are accurate as the eye sees. That’s what a good phone camera should give.
We begin the year with a new auto, purchased a few weeks ago—2010 Toyota Yaris. The cutie car replaces our 1992 Toyota Corolla, which was totaled in a Black Friday weekend 2009 accident.
The family looked at several options, including the Honda Fit. Hertz rented us another Yaris, which charmed us all with its snub nose, compact size, and tight turning radius. We couldn’t resist.
