Talking My viral picture "DATA55"



Hey guys. So one of my shots recently went viral (over 40k cumulative "likes" on facebook and 2500 "shares".)

Pretty exciting as this is only my third "Viral" and now most viral image over 10 years of shooting.


I wanted to call on your help. I am just looking for sources it has been posted to keep record. So if you have seen it somewhere, even on Facebook post it here!

Just this morning Performance Auto & Sound Magazine posted it on their FB page (). A few Lotus pages have also posted.

Thanks much!

Also for reference, my second most Viral:

Also, I think it's important to put a face to the booty. You NEVER know!

That a bulldog or boxer? I'm going to make a wild guess here, Canon non-full frame, let's say 50d, 60D or 7D? Bottom photo, too hard to tell but I'd be shocked if that's a Nikon.

I cheated but not that badly. Opened his page and saw someone holding a 580EX so I knew it was canon gear. Look at the shadows, you can tell it's not a pro camera so that narrows it down a lot. If I saw the original in RAW I could probably guess if it was prime or not. Hard to know when something has been digitally altered.

In regards to the first pic, I assure you I am not alone in asking for a 20Mpixel version for uh, research.

Thanks guys!

The girl in the first shot has actually chosen to remain Anon (She's a cop, just cant say which PD). The second girl with my S2k is Mariel Beatriz (Now retired from modeling for another Career).

The Guess was right 7D. Id still classify it as a Pro, or at least Semi-pro camera. Then again I see soccer mom's rocking 5D III's now. :Facepalm:

A few more shots fro that Lotus set can be found here:

Pretty funny when you see the soccer mom walking around with a 5dmk3 equipped with $10k in L glass. Although a good camera, the 7D is at best a semi-pro. I know lots of guys who will use it as a backup cam. If you've ever owned/used a 5D then you'll agree it's an entirely different beast. It's like comparing 35mm with 120. How I miss my old Mamiya 645...

Oh by all means, Id love a 5D, but this is only a hobby for me. I make NO money from it.

I am deeply disturbed by the first picture, that is not proper positioning for the jackstand.

How exactly? This is the rear cross-member.

I think you may be mistaken.
You can see the position better here:
