Originally intended to document my experience of DeLorean ownership, focus is often radical and strange, boring and obtuse.

Stainless Autumn

A clash of vivid colours and grey steel; nature and industry.

This is the best time of year. The sun hangs lower in the sky sending its failing rays to the trees, which absorb as much as they can. It's not enough, and their leaves change to brilliant yellows, oranges and reds making the Halloween season all the more exciting.

The other day I had an ideal opportunity for a 'photo shoot' and drove my DeLorean to the end of my street where there is vast conservation land. I drove across the grass and parked in front of the absolutely towering trees and started taking pictures. Like this one.

I've had a number of photos published in DeLorean World Magazine, such as this one, and I was hoping to submit these to the Editor, Sascha, for a future issue. I'm not a professional by any stretch, but I'm happy that some of my photos are good enough to be published.

While parked, joggers and cyclists stopped to take in the scene... or perhaps catch their breath. Breathing is important, and if you stop, you can die. So that's probably it. Yeah.

When I got home I started working on my car. I won't say much because I don't want to spoil the surprise. This afternoon I finished the transformation and the next time I post pictures of it, it will look a little different. Perhaps a little "cooler", if you know what I mean. Actually, that's a really lame clue. Sorry.
