The imposing visage of a vehicle at the Blethering Place Collector Car Festival.

20090825 - vrooom!Canon EOS 450D (XSi) · Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5
10 mm · 1/200 s · f/9 · ISO 200

This is a car.

A car in Oak Bay.

It’s red.

It has wheels.

That’s about all I can tell you, except what I can see from its exterior: it’s a Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396. I guess.

I accept that I know sweet frick all about cars. Well, except that some of ’em, like this one, look way cool.

So . . . instead, let’s talk about how I was able to shoot this photo only two feet from the front of the car, shall we? =)

That’s right, it’s a new nose for my Magical Pictobox 3500™, the Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM. That just means its a really freaking wide lens, and can capture a distort-o-rrific amount of stuff through its glass.

This is one of those with-great-power-comes-great-responsibility things. I could very well go off and capture nothing but fisheye faces and whopping landscapes from now on with this lens, but I’ll try my darndest not to fall into that trap. No promises, though.

=)
