    Had the opportunity today to spend some serious time in what was a small-engine repair shop. It's part of a job I'm working on where the owner of the business has died, and I was hired to bring the wiring up to code. While working yesterday, I started looking around and noticed that, even for such a small enterprise, there were tons of photo ops.

    So I asked the new owner, who had not cleared everything out yet, if I could return today to take some pix. To my surprise, he said OK. So I took my time, shooting both digital as well as with the 4x5, some of the 'scenes' I can noticed yesterday.

    Here's the outcome of 3 hours of shooting:







    I'll dunk the film tonight, and hopefully get some scans up soon. I want to compare the similar shots I took with both the D600 and the Shen Hao.

    Looks like that place has some real character to it - looking forward to the film shots, but these digital ones are really nice too!

    I love this style of shot. Floats my boat big time! Can smell the oil and grease.
