1966 Ford Mustang

1966 saw further refinement of the Mustang. The gauge cluster was redone to seperate the Mustang from its Falcon roots while the 260 cid V8 was replaced with 2 and 4 barrel versions of the 289 cid V8.

The Shelby GT-350 was still available, though its race image was being dilluted by the addition of an automatic transmission, a choice of four colors, and special examples that were prepared for Hertz-Rent-A-Car (known as Shelby GT-350H) for rental to weekend drag racers.

Glebe Island Bridge + Pyrmont Walk

Lifted from the RTA webbie

The ANZAC Bridge opened in 1995 and was formerly the Glebe Island Bridge. It is:

  • The longest cable-stayed bridge in Australia, with a main deck length of 805 metres, including a 345 metre span between the towers. The two 128 metre towers support 128 cables.
  • Amongst the longest concrete cable-stayed bridges in the world.
  • A landmark visible from many of the city’s inner suburbs.
  • Eight lanes wide.

The bridge provides a key link from the Sydney CBD to the inner west and western suburbs. It connects to the City West Link road, which links Victoria Road, near Anzac Bridge, to Parramatta Road at Five Dock. The City West link includes:

  • Extensive improvements completed at the intersection of Victoria Road and the Crescent.
  • A new four-lane arterial from the Crescent to Balmain Road, completed in 1999.
  • A link to Parramatta Road at Five Dock via Dobroyd Parade, completed in 2000.

Flashing the Beaver (DHC-2)

hah, get your mind outta the gutter

This beautiful dehavilland beaver has been lovely restored and in very short time will be getting back in the air. The position of this subject was not too bad, the only gripe being the wreck in the background and a seneca off to the left. This particular aircraft in its current paint job, pure white, lends itself to BW conversion which I had in mind for this session, hopefully this can also convey some of the original feeling of this aircraft. On a side note this is definitely one of my favorite aircraft, they just do not make them like this any more, a bit like the old school nikon lens, built like tanks and can take some abuse..

I struggled a bit with the lighting here, being such a large object i had to get my dancing shoes on to get around the scene to get it lit up, one thing that really improves these type of images (cars etc) is lighting up the interior, gettign a strobe in the inside would be awesome, i did try this but i ran out of time in my 30 sec exposure and could only ever get a couple of flashes thru the window in an attempt to light up cockpit.
