I’d drive that.
Here’s an old Jag E Type seen in the car show at the Scottish Games Festival at Furman University. Usually when I edit photos containing red cars my computer’s like “OMG I LOVE RED!!1 MAKE IT AS BRIGHT AS POSSIBLE!!!!11!” But this one didn’t turn out too bad. I suppose. More photos to come from this show.
I thought this was pretty cool. The newest version of Windows Live Photo Gallery has face recognition built in. Like voice recognition software, the more you use it, the better it becomes about recognizing people. The tags are embedded in the photo itself, so if the file is transferred to another computer, the tag will stick. Also, when a tagged photo is uploaded to a site like Facebook, it auto-tags the people so that you don’t have to do it twice. Another cool feature is that it allows you to select multiple people to show photos that contain these people together.
This was taken in the lobby of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, OH. They didn’t allow cameras in any of the part of the building so I was limited to shooting in the lobby. It was a stage prop for the band Phish. There are cutouts on top of the meat that fold up to reveal seats. According to the description plaque, the band “flew” around the stage in this thing.
Give it some wheels and you’ve got yourself a wiener-mobile… wait, that one’s already taken, isn’t it? How about a tandem wiener? Bobsled?
Located in the Music Museum of Seattle, Washington, this cone was built using numerous instruments (primarily guitars). Many of the guitars were hooked up to electronics and set on a timer to play music throughout the day. At the time, there was some sort of concert going on about 100 yards away so I was unable to hear tornado play its music.
I managed to snag a few of these through a member of the Single Over-Head Cam 4 Forum ( http://forums.sohc4.net ). He makes a bunch of different types for a handful of different bikes. The two clear covers shown are for a Honda CB550 and replace the stock, metal points cover. They’re made from a thick, clear plastic that both look good and feel strong. The center cover (pictured) is painted and is meant to attach to the alternator cover.
These covers fit a bunch of models of motorcycles and he also makes them for a few different manufacturers (Triumph, BSA). There should be a website up pretty soon with full model compatibility as well as pricing. For purchasing information you can email zabueloz (at) hotmail (dot) com
