A window

D800E  105/1.4
I like these kind of apparently simple but visually appealling mages. Great shot, John.

Chevrolet pick-up '50 s

Zfc, 23mm f/1.4

This Chevrolet truck design was made between 1947 and 1955 according to Wikipedia. The grill shown changed by 1954. My father's company owned a 1952 Chevrolet Pickup and so I'll guess this is a 1952 year model.  :) I can't remember if the truck I road rode in was a 1/2 ton or 3/4 ton. I remember it was black had a foot starter switch.

Paco, you kickstarted the New Year by pushing that venerable D2100 of yours to its limits :)

   We are having a love affair  :) She stutter a couple of times a month ago and I almost took her to the doctor but it turns out she just needed some love. Is working flawlessly ever since and inspiringly so, if I must (happily) add.
   Birna, that´s visual poetry.
    John, those almost-fractals rectangles work very well indeed.

I talked to the guy, its quite rare to see an original Chevy like this overhere.
It looks to be a 1951 import from Irvine,KY

Meanwhile, I discovered an old and rather dusty camera body, later found a battery and charger for it, and eventually a lens that would fit. Very nice playing around with such limited gear for a while. Makes a refreshing contrast to the razor-sharp Z7 files.

Beautiful abstraction!

From the additional photos I'm guessing the 52 Chevy I remember was a 3/4 ton. My father's company also owned a 3/4 ton, 1963 Chevy pickup. I drove the '63 a few times. I was taking presorted 1st or 2nd class mail to the post office. That was decades ago but it doesn't seem that long ago to me.

Okay, this is still an "in-the-box" shot.   :P

Another contribution with the same oldie camera and lens. Ruth saw the picture and couldn't see what it was -- I told her and she laughed.
