Nissan contours

Nissan contours

Here’s an abstract photograph that doesn’t really fit the Pixabay philosophy so I’m putting it here. It’s a macro capture of the NISSAN badge on the back of my very old and very dirty car.

This photo was taken with a Sigma 105mm F2.8 EX Macro lens on my Nikon D300. I will write more about this lens (and this camera) another time, but for now it’s enough to say that this is a very sharp lens! You can see the specks of dirt, dust and grime quite clearly.

Below is a 100% crop of the image and as you can see the paint has aged and suffered through its 20 years of life and the chrome-effect has distressed to a point where it looks a little like the contours on a map.

Perhaps they are contours? Small descriptive lines etched into the surface of the badge created there by every twist and turn taken on the journey of my car’s life. Maybe.
