Contrail 002

Contrail, No. 002
Contrail from a two jet engine airliner.

Contrail, No. 003
Sunlight glints off the four jet engines of this airplane that produced a very short contrail.

Contrail, No. 004
Another "mystery" contrail, where the condensation is visible, but the airplane almost is not.

Covers three

One of these manhole covers has three holes, the second has only two holes, and the third, just the one. 

Manhole cover with one hole

Manhole cover with two holes

Manhole cover with three holes

They look similar.  The daily polishing by automobile tires keeps them bright and shiny.  Yet, the hole counts differ.  The mysteries of the world beneath our feet.

Grey steel panels

Steel grey panels

These stainless steel panels are used on an exterior  wall.  The non-uniform installation and weathering allows patterns to be created.

Chevrolet Styleline in green metallic

Chevrolet Styleline in green metaliic, No. 1

This Chevrolet Styleline, possibly a 1951, has an exquisite metallic green paint job to match the clean body work and mirror finish chrome.

Chevrolet Styleline in green metaliic, No.2 (relaxed view 3d)

In this relaxed view 3d stereogram, the metallic green paint nicely shows off the body lines.  Note that the headlights have the yellow lens at the bottom.

Contrail 001

Contrail, No. 001

The four jet engine airplane that is producing this contrail is just barely visible.  There is an interesting rainbow effect occurring in the middle of the condensation trail.

GMC 5500 series flatbed truck

GMC 5500 Series flatbed truck

The green with orange paint scheme, and its overall condition, make this flatbed truck a "rat rod" candidate.  This is a GMC 5500 Series V-Six, possibly from 1968.

This 3d relaxed view stereogram provides a good view of the overall paint scheme.

Regular readers will note that this flatbed is at the same locale as where the Chevy Bel Air and Chevy II were located.  Note the use of "were".  Both of those beauties have been moved, to who knows where.  The photos here capture them for posterity until they can be located again.

Update:  the truck has been moved to the other side of the lot.
