Photographer's Note

This is an example of difficulties which finds a beginner like me with a camera that is not a prosumer neither a reflex. First of all: no wide angle and beside me the wall. So tell me how can I include al the car? Second the glass: I wanted to avoid the glass in the lower part of the photo, but I couldn't. I used a chair, but nothing. Third: the reflection and you can see me on the chair! what can I do? Fourth the light: there were lamps and the wall was white. What can I do? There is not contrast. I see it after with a Ps software (my camera has not istogram).
Anyway in this condition I have photographed this superb Alfa Romeo 2900 B.
"2900 B" has been called "the fastest and most beautiful sports car in the world". The engine was derived directly from the one wich powered the "Type B" Grand Prix single-seater, the "P3" as the 1934 model became known, with two Roots superchargers side by side. It developed 180 hp at 5200 rpm and could reach 185 km/h. Excellent roadholding in all conditions combined with a truly docile personality conspire to delight and surprise the fortunate few lucky enough to possess one of these. The "2900 B" was unrivalled both on road and track; it tooks the first three places in the 1938 "Mille Miglia" race.
If you are in Milan you can see this car (and other old Alfa Romeo cars) in Palazzo Ragione (click HERE to see it) till 19th june 2004.

A very special THANKS to JEPPE MADSEN who teached me the art of recalling.
