I was walking home from work with my $15 Industar 50-2 mounted on my $10 yard sale Canon with some $7 Portra 400 in it. Then I spotted a Mercedes S63 AMG Coupe.

It wasn’t quite Manhattanhenge that evening, but the sun was setting down the length of East 12th Street, cutting across Fifth Ave and into the leather interior.

I mostly wanted to check if the camera worked, now I’ve got this annoying feeling that I’m obligated to get all the press cars I can shoot for Jalopnik on film.
