National Benzole

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 23 January 2014 in Transportation and Portfolio.

Here's an old brand that I didn't recognise last year.

This very old petrol tanker was found as part of the 2013 Tyne Tees Run which ended in the Bents Park, South Shields.

Three auto-bracketed hand held shots were used to make this HDR in Photomatix.

PENTAX K100D F/6.7 ISO 800 18 mm

Now THIS is a classic Curly photograph. Love the HDR and the subject matter. You've more intesting old vehicles in your home town than I see in my whole state. Well done, as usual.
