The Model A is such a willing subject.
I walk around it and
try to see where the light is talking to it. By the time I did
the final shot, the one with the cowl lamp, it was dark

I've got a soft spot for good Tessar's.
Only the f4.5 1C
versions though. I don't care about the f6.3 ones. And
I like coated ones from the late '40's, to mid '50's. And
obviously, I like them shot wide open with selective
out of focus areas. Not sure that last one worked.
