Friday Photo Share November, 18 2011

Happy Friday! It's been a busy week for me with work and other personal commitments. As a result I STILL haven't gotten through all the images from our trip out West. I better get it done this weekend though because my parents are visiting for Thanksgiving and they expect a fantastic showing of all the great photographs I took! I'm hoping to get through them this weekend and then put together a couple of posts showing the images from our trip. Stay tuned for that (probably the week after Thanksgiving).

For this week's photo share I have another car photo that I took this past Summer. This one is of an old Dodge truck (I think it was a 1948) that was in the middle of restoration. Once again, the headlight caught my eye. The little bit of orange in the light was in stark contrast to the white/gray/metallic colors of the rest of the vehicle. I used a fairly large aperture (small f/stop #) to get a shallow depth of field.

 Upcoming Contest Announcement

This blog is slowly starting to gain traction. It's been up for a couple of months and is starting to get more and more page views and subscribers. For that I am very thankful :-) I'd like to kick things up a notch though so I will be running a contest/giveaway with HUGE, Super-Duper, MASSIVE prizes !!! (or at least a moderately decent prize) very soon. I'm thinking of something that will be based on increasing the subscriber base and/or page views. It will most likely involve the submission of photographs along a certain theme.

As of now I'm thinking of starting the contest the week after Thanksgiving, so stay tuned for an announcement.

 If any of you have any ideas for the contest I'm open to suggestion. Just leave a comment with your idea and I promise it will be seriously considered.

Happy Shooting!
