Just some fun with a placard, flashlight — and one click of the shutter. Promise.

Comparing vehicles is always a lot of fun, and these three were just similar enough to make it interesting. This was for a comparo that will appear in World of Wheels Magazine next month.

Just a little bit of sand, eh?

A Jeep engineer having some fun in a wash during an off-road excursion. Location? Moab, Utah. This photo was used for a World of Wheels magazine cover in August, 2007.

Nothing too special, just spent a little time getting to know the latest Jag and my new camera. It’s available on my Flickr as a desktop-sized download, too!

I took this shot somewhere slightly northeast of the city. I spotted this pristine green field, flat, and full of colour. Besides doing static stuff in front of old buildings, the Bentley is very hard to photograph. It’s a sense that whatever shot it’s in, it’ll be the dominating factor.
