Automotif CCCLXVIII...

Canon EOS 7D & EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM

If there's one thing they know how to do in Italy, it's how to bend sheet metal into a very attractive shape.

These were all shot with the 7D, so they embiggenate nicely.

While Detroit operated under a marketing philosophy that called for small but distinct cosmetic changes to every model year of a vehicle, so you could tell how well you were keeping up with the Joneses (or whether the Joneses were keeping up with you), foreign marques don't do that. It's nearly impossible to look at an old Alfa Romeo, like this Giulietta Spider, and come up with anything closer than "Well, it's late Fifties or early Sixties."

Love them Panasport wheels!
