The camera never lies… Or does it !?!?…

New Addition to the Family…

Yeah ok, maybe not quite what you were expecting…. lol… but at least this one does mostly what I tell it to… ;)

It’s been an awfully long time since I last took some unadulterated car shots… but there comes a time in every mans life when… well… Sorry… ;)

I kinda like my new toy, so be prepared for some more shots soon…. maybe even a streaky one or two… :)

  1. Not what I was expecting you are right, but I actually like the shot a lot. Did you get “funky Slug” license plates or was that a photoshop job? In any case, a great pic.

    • Thanks Martin… and lol… No the personal plates are purely a figment of Photoshop… but it had to be done… ;)

    Sorry Bri, can’t see the one of Lorraine across the bonnet.

    February 18, 2011 at 9:44 pm

    • Well she was there, but I guess I polished it too much, so she kept slipping off… ;)

  8. Awesome shots – they look like a magazine ad. Especially like the clouds reflected in the hood (bonnet I suppose to you) on shot number too Maybe the folks at Mazda will like it and buy it from you!

    • Thanks Karen… Glad to see you’re learning the real words… lol.. Do you think they’d want the personal plates too… ;)

    Very sleek and elegant. I’m now a fan of Mazda cars since I inherited my Dad’s 8 years ago – it’s been *such* a good little car. I love the first shot. Looking forward to the go-faster-streaky ones.

    Glad to see you back in Web World. :)

    • Thanks so much Jayne.. This is my second Mazda 6… and I loved the style of my old one, and it was a great car… This one I like a lot more, and hopefully it will be just as good a car too…

      February 19, 2011 at 8:20 pm

  10. Very shiny! Love the number plates :)

    February 19, 2011 at 2:13 pm

    • Thanks JP… I have to confess though that the plates aren’t real… ;)

      February 19, 2011 at 8:21 pm

  12. WOW! Paint it, Brian! Come on! You can do it!

    February 20, 2011 at 8:12 pm

    • I’m not sure how my wife would feel about me painting it, as she quite likes it the colour it is… plus I’m pretty sure the watercolour would wash off… lol… Thanks Leslie… ;)

  14. Awesome shots!! really awesome!

    February 22, 2011 at 6:10 pm

  15. I had a Mazda 6 when they first came out. But mine was the sports wagon 4×4, just a beefed up estate really. It had one of those triptronic gearboxes, it was a great car but drank the fuel. At the same time my wife had a black MX-5, I used to love driving it in winter with the roof down and a hat and scarf on. Enjoy your toy :-)

    February 22, 2011 at 8:35 pm

    • Thanks Keith… My last car was an older Mazda 6 too, and I was very happy with that one too, so lets hope this one is even better… So far so good.. ;)

      February 22, 2011 at 9:57 pm
