magnesium

This is a close up of the cylinder head on my motorcycle. As you might have guessed by now, it's made of magnesium. The road spooge on the front gives it some authenticity, but you might not see it unless you blow it up by clicking on it. I ride this bike as much as I can, I absolutely love it.





Canon EF 50mm f1.4 USM lens
Exposure 1/160 sec @ f2.8
ISO 100
Curves adjusted for contrast
Monochrome

This reminds me of something from one of those high quality dealer's catalogs. Very cool.

I see you've been very busy while I was fixing my lawnmowers, cutting trees, and putting in a garden... all great photos and I learned the meaning of spooge too!

You make excellent photos of commonplace items. Keep up the great photography!

That is one cool photo, like ciel I would've never thought of capturing it. Learned something new from you today.
