                    It is a Minolta 6M. I hate its wide angle as it stretches everything; it is one of those quick and easy to shoot cameras. I am planning to borrow my friend's professional camera and take some better pics.

                        I am not expert in photography but I know this much that cloudy days are the best time for outdoor photography as with no direct sun light you wont get any shadows from objects.

                        I took those pictures right after the sunset, when light is scattered and it is bright enough not to need flash and at the same time dark enough for the console and gauge lights to glow in the image. You may find that this threshold lasts only a few minutes before it gets too dark.
