    Came across these interesting subjects recently, the car was in town when I was going home and came across the car outside the church so had a quick chat with the driver and grabbed the shot.

    The second shot was an old disused petrol station with the old pumps still intact - just had to stop and grab the image.

    The misty image I took on the way to work as it really appealed to me.

    Once again the GR delivered!

    Morning mist.

    The old pumps.

    The wedding car.

    The car's a bit too sweet for my taste, but the other two I really like. Any idea how long those pumps have been out of use?

    Thanks Both,

    I have no idea about the pumps as they were in a small village and there was no-one around, I would imagine quite a few years by the state of the pumps and surrounding area.

    We have certainly not had pumps like these in the UK for a very long time - 20+yrs at least.
     
  5. Really like the last two.

    Love the second one. One of my not-yet-started-but-will-be-when-I-get-the time projects is derelict petrol stations.

    Thanks Dave & Martin,

    The petrol pumps were a complete fluke and a pleasant surprise so just had to stop and grab the shot.

    There cant be many of these type pumps around anymore.

    Truly great images and photographs.

    I personally find the middle one - of the petrol pumps - jaw-droopingly cool.

    It's almost enough to make a person violate their strict anti-GAS vow and acquire a GR.....but I still have some remnants of will-power left.
    But these are really fine photographs.

    Thanks Miguel,

    The GR is a great investment and for me I have found myself using it more than my other cameras for impromptu photos as it is always with me.

    They have come down in price considerably and I was lucky enough to get a good trade in price for some disused kit so managed to get it for £300 rather than the normal £499 selling price here in the UK.

    I have no hesitation in recommending the GR to any enthusiast photographer, it is small enough to fit in a pocket and good enough to deliver great images - winner all round
