Porche's Pictures

Cars Boats and Automobiles (Nikon D5300)

It was a long day today with the plan to go to the Prototype Museum (perhaps I sort of missed the point of the museum because only some of them were prototypes I thought, so it was a car museum). The museum was quite good. Three floors of various cars with no real theme other than the cars were all German. It was quite impressive in a way to get so close to some of the cars though you weren't allowed to touch the cars.I quite liked Michael Schumacher's car from his time at Jordan and I'm not sure why, probably the weird mix of underdog and future world champion.

Next up was as trip to the San Diego. I wasn't sure what to expect from thsi because it was something tha my Wife wanted to go to and she explained it as a cargo ship turned into a museum, which to be honest could be the best thing in the world, but also could just be dull. In the end it turned out she bought tickets for the wrong boat and we ended up on a one hour and twenty minute tour of the dock and surrounding area, which might have been OK if it weren't in German. Still it was OK to bob about in the sun around the docks.

Last up today was Elbe beach that we didn't find, but we did see a Hamburg traffic jam.

So onto the picture, it's a Porche 912. I love the 911 and this seems to be the bread and butter 911 apparently, lots of cheap stuff went into this and yet it has the same impressive look.

Oulton Carrera Cup
Oulton Carrera Cup (Minolta X500)

Yes I finally found out how to pan. Sorry for those not interested in photography but I was trying my panning techniques at Oulton Park when we were there for the Touring car meet in July. Of course with this technique you do end up with a ton of rubbish photos and just one goodish one. There was a clearer photo but the colours in this worked better.

Needless to say that it's been a bad weekend for pictures because of a bike repair situation and the awful weather but at least I got the twelve spools of film back from the shop so I have billions of rubbish photos to junk with a few gems and this (you might not agree) is one.

Just for the Oulton and car buffs here, this was taken at Druids. A bad place as far as I am concerned to view the race but by the looks of it a good place to take panning pictures with it's sweeping bend. It's rubbish as as spectator because it has trees to the right and left so you have limited vision so the cars appear as if from nowhere trying to hang onto the fast curve and dissapear as quick.
