Wheels Within Wheels
Posted for BeckyB’s January Squares Challenge: words ending in ~light.
What can I say? I like sturdy vehicles that can take me off road to good hiking trails. Although this was a random vehicle parked on the street and not mine. But these tires and the suspension could take you practically anywhere.
A bumper sticker on someone’s beloved (very) old Jeep. He parks and reads every afternoon on the street corner. The owner is white haired and has probably owned the Jeep for a very long time. Wouldn’t be surprised if he maintains the Jeep himself.
Bumper sticker in Oakland, California.
Or perhaps in this case, I should say Distorted Detail. This is an outrageously distorted detailed reflection from the same black BMW car I posted yesterday. You can clearly see the door handle front and (almost) center, and down in the lower left, you can see the seam of the back passenger door. But after that, the fun begins.
Above the door handle, you can’t even see the black of the car, as the curvature reflects the bright blue sky and the Norman styled church tower. Then below that, there’s green grass, and in the handle itself is a distorted me with red hair (that part is true to life) and my arms akimbo. Then there’s a quarter oval of blue sky again with perhaps a few white clouds reflected (the optics of curvatures working again). Then below another curve of the door there’s my hands, phone camera, my shirt and pants, and more green grass. And if you look in the lower right corner you will see a distorted sign, and the dogs – Teddy the labradoodle, and if you follow the line of the leash, just a peek of the face of my grey miniature schnauzer, Zoë.
This photo was just too fun to pass up, and it seemed to fit better into P. A. Moed’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Detail than anywhere else.
This post is for Jennifer’s, Tourmaline blog, Color Your World challenge. This week her color is Black.
