Day 1 Targa Tasmania stage 3 finished up with a blast through the closed roads of the beautiful & historic George Town in the north east Tasmania.
flüssiger Thomas Voigt takes us on an intimate tour of an M44.43 16-valve head that helps a 968 breathe.
a few days ago I got a very warm email from a guy named Ulfert Janssen. in it he very cordially introduced me to the work of an artist named Markus Haub.
"Haub, Haub...Markus Haub; I know that name..." I was saying this aloud to Che, my pitbull, who usually sits right next to me at the typer. with a broad stroke of his tongue over my cheek, I remembered exactly who Markus was through his art.
"yea, yea...the guy who made paintings of Porsches in a style that spoke loudly to my disheveled half; and on a few of the paintings he'd write a sort of title with a few descriptive words, a sort of preface to the subject, in this refined calligraphic font."
I remember finding one of his pieces by accident about a year ago. it grabbed me right away, so I decided to share it on my Facebook page knowing that my Porschista comrades would dig it.
and here was Ulfert making a proper introduction of his friend in place of the clandestine one I made during one of searches--
Bettina and Andi's photography is high art with a fingerprint. I've seen nothing else like it. whatever the subject, they have this ability to make it hyper real. like glass, you're mesmerized by the smoothness. the sharp colors give them intensity. details once subtle become magnified. the familiar becomes an entirely new experience. the eye never wants to leave.
they chose Bernd Fuhrmann's luscious 968 CS for their subject making an already lustful Porsche purely intoxicating.
