The Japanese scarf (more properly, the furoshiki) went to the Auto Show this year. It had numerous adventures you will see later, but the high point of its visit was being photographed elegantly posed with a 1951 Alfetta in the Alfa Romeo booth. Grazie to the the corporate representative who did the draping. What, you don’t think they’re going to let me near their gorgeous vintage Alfas, do you? It took several attempts to get the logo on the video screen behind the car into the shot– the image kept changing.
(For photo geeks: Sigma 30mm f/1.4 Art on Pentax K5iis, 1/6o, f/4.5, ISO 250. Lots of light at the Auto Show.)
