Petrol-powered Stagecoach

Mercedes-Benz traces its origins to Karl Benz's creation of the first petrol-powered car based on Wilhelm Maybach's conversion of a stagecoach by the addition of a petrol engine.  It was financed by Bertha Benz.  Emil Jellinek, an Austrian automobile entrepreneur named the automobile the 1901 Mercedes 35 hp after his daughter Mercedes Jellinek.  Hence the name Mercedes-Benz.

Imperfect Solitude in Dark Prague

Cross Processing Granada

Cross processing  is the deliberate processing of photographic film in a chemical solution intended for a different type of film. The effect was discovered independently by many different photographers often by mistake in the days of C-22 and E-4. Color cross processed photographs are often characterized by unnatural colors and high contrast.  I've made some cool images using this process.  But there is a risk of ruining the developing machine.  I've since stopped doing that.

Last Leaves in Bunratty

I shot this image back in November of 2016.  Somewhere close by the Bunratty Castle in Ireland.  The original image was shot with a  14 mm wide angle lens but I didn't know how to edit it.  I might have tried several times but they were utter failures in my opinion.  Lately, I've gone back to it and decided to massively crop it to show just the leaves with a bit of reflection.  I think this works.  What do you think?

Hope your day is going well.
