    I think he just caught it with the blinker on.

    There's a professional photographer who often sits on a nice bit of Highway 94 near Campo, CA, USA. See MotoFoto Motorsports Photography . Here's a nice one of the BGC that he caught. It also appears in my blog, but thought I'd post it here.

    The more I see of that colour, the more I like it.

    Thanks, dsm363. This was shot on a tripod with a 4'x8' black backdrop behind and to the left of the camera position to minimize distracting reflections. No flash: I just fired a burst while depressing the key fob's lock switch and caught the yellow internal lighting as it blinked.

    Does that mean I'll find one in my stocking?

    Stevezzzz,

    Great shots, and I love the 19 inch wheels! Logo shot looks awesome!

    I'm sure many will have a Model S on their wishlists for Christmas; here's hoping you deliver!

    Not sure what you mean. But if you look carefully at the first shot you can see the top of my disembodied head reflected in the paint between the headlights and wheel opening. :confused:

    You're channeling Fisker Karma flames with that long exposure!

    Ha! Love the head, didn't catch that.

    The hand appears to be gripping the top edge of the black card, seen in the red paint reflection, about half way above the top left of the turn signal indicator and the top edge of the photo.

    I work/art direct with commercial photographers, so I know what a chore it is to hide reflections.

    Oh, THAT hand...that would be the lovely Marcia's hand. Nice catch. I don't shoot cars commercially, and you're right, the reflections are a PITA. Here are a couple more to highlight my shortcomings.:wink::tongue:

    I find your obsession with Mary Kay disturbing... ;-)

    A friend's wife had one of those pink Cadillacs for a while... I still get nightmares!
