Vintage prestige

A couple of shots featuring vintage prestige cars (a Rolls Royce, a Bentley, and a Jaguar).

I had intended to go out and shoot a roll or two of film this morning, but when I arrived at the location the weather had changed from sunlight to overcast, which put me off. The nail in teh coffing though was the fact that my lightmeter – a Sekonic L-308s – was displaying an error message an wouldn’t work at all. I’ve not got to try and get it repaired and hope I don’t have to buy a replacement (I’d quite like a combination spot / incident meter, but they seem to cost an absolute fortune!). It’s not the end of the world though as I still have my original L-208 Twinmate meter which will work just as well. It’s just that I do like the digital display on the 308.

  1. I once worked for a guy who had one of those old Bentleys, same shape as the Rolls Royce pictured. It was a wonderful piece of antiquity, all old leather and walnut, comfortable to ride in and capable of passing anything on the road except a service station! Heaven knows what they cost to maintain!!!
