Spotted - 2013 Nissan GT-R R35

2013 Nissan GT-R (V-Spec?)
On Thursday nights Bernie & I tend to hang out at a meet or two, but tonight we were late to the party & missed out. Just as we decided to call it a night & we headed back to my apartment so we could drop me off, we spotted this GT-R in the parking lot. Thrilled, we headed over to check it out and so I could grab some photos. I feared not having a tripod would produce useless images, but I was happy to find most of them came out. But they still don't do the car justice.

"Gotta Catch Em All!" My New Love of Car Spotting

Pretty Blue
As I mentioned on my Facebook page about a month ago, I've finally acquired my first DSLR, a Nikon D50 with an 18-55mm lens.  Words can't describe how excited I was to finally have a real camera to improve the quality of my photographs and my skills as a budding automotive photographer.  I look for every opportunity to use it. So lately, I've been compelled to carry my camera with me everywhere I go in hopes of catching some good cars in the wild.  I've now taken up an interest in car spotting.
