    Here I am, the absolute no-car-photographer, proudly presenting you this:

    It is not mine, nor do I know who it belongs to. I only happened to see it parked where it was when I toured the area for nice photos of farmsteads and just COULD not leave it unphotographed. So white. So shiny. So old. A treasure!

    Very nice, I also love the building in the back. I could spend a few weeks in your neck of the woods shooting.

    In answer to this question, let me tell you that after my little fall-out with the people from the swim club, I had to hand them back the digital camera that had been in my possession for about half a year, but by then I had got so used to the "instant gratification" aspect of digital photography that I did not want to be without a digital camera for even a day. So I immediately got myself this little Canon Powershot A95 (more or less just point-and-shoot) to have a back-up digital camera. This also went on my photo tour with me yesterday, and the photos shown here right now (this one, the windmill and the Lower Saxony Farmsteads Part 2) are digital photos - unlike most of my others so far presented. But I filled five rolls of film, too, yesterday morning, so by tomorrow I hope to find out that the outcome on film was good, too.

    Since I'm "at work" here on TPF, I might as well show you the other Beetle-and-Farmhouse photos, right?

    I really like the first one but I don't know why. It is odd to have the car so far from the barn but for this shot it works for me.

    Eric, actually there's a house to the left outside the photo, and the Beetle is parked on those people's driveway. Plus I don't know the car owner, nor did anyone place it there for me, or so that I'd take its photo. It just happened to be there and caught my attention, what with its being a Volkswagen Beetle (which have vintage car status by now) and its very clean and shiny white :).

    Oh! My all time favourite car... some day I'm definitely gonna get one. When I can afford to look after it, that is.

    As for the pictures, these are excellent! I really love the colours of the farmhouse in contrast with the whiteness of the car. Great work.

    I love these. :thumbup:

    I really like the last two best, I think its because the top of that beautiful barn is not cut off. The bright white beatle looks great with all of the colours captured in the background.

    Nicley taken photos, and I like the colors, really great!

    however, I think that the motive is kinda boring, but I am no car lover, i cant see any feeling at all, the car and the barm splits themselves from history as much as they can wich somehow makes it a bad touch... maybe a old time wagoon would be better....

    but like I said I am no car lover... and it was a good photo :D
