What a beautiful car! Normally, I prefer trucks and Jeeps when it comes to my own vehicle, but this one definitely caught my eye. So I guess G.A.S. (Gear Acquisition Syndrome) can apply to things other than cameras.
A couple of days ago I took our car in for service, and while waiting to talk to the “service guy” I was parked right next to this. It’s hard to tell from the photo but the paint is a matte finish in dark gray, and then of course there’s the yellow trim … racing stripes down the side and on the hood. This is the Mercedes Benz V8 BiTurbo and it is a mean looking machine. Of course it will set you back close to $100,000! (Way beyond my budget.) 🙂
As soon as I finished getting my car checked in, I grabbed my Fuji X70 and snapped a few images concentrating mainly on the wheel detail. That gold brake caliper is so gorgeous I would hate to ever use the brakes and get it dirty. If you look closely, the silver part in the lower right is the disc which I was told is made of ceramic.
The beauty of this little X70 is that it fits easily into my jacket pocket, yet puts out those beautiful X-Trans images from its APS-C sensor. Once again I’ve shown myself that the best camera is the one you have with you. You never know when that next photo op will appear.
