Give up your day job. Become a professional photographer. This photo reflects excellence!

Oh, yes, Helenmac is right. Do you have a day job? Do you love it all to itty bitty bits? If you don't, then scrap it, and flog your fotos on the street.
If that's too drastic, keep your job but sell your photos online.
On the other hand, if all you need is admiration and a bit of ego-stroking, you'll get it here. I love the car picture. Love the car, too.

Great shot and lovely car - not too pretentious. I wonder how they keep those tyres clean?

Nice car and great photo shot. The owner must polish the car daily to have it gleaming the way it does. What type of car is it - looks a little like a Vauxhill. I just read it on the wheels - it's a Ford.
Enjoy your weekend.☺

One just does not see beautiful motor cars anymore!
So I just take what is reflected in them! I like yours with the reflection of another one - good sight!

Francisca said...

A Ford with character... not too many of those these days... especially not ones with a great reflection! Nice green, too. :-)

a classic image!

James said...

What a cool old car. It makes a great frame for a nice reflection. I love it!

We have a classic car show here in Forest Hills every Tuesday for as long as the season(s) will allow, culminating w/ a Toys for Tots Run in November. All money is raised for St. Mary's Children's Hospital in Bayside. These beautiful vehicles take so many of us back to a past we have never really experienced in true color. BEAUTIFUL SHOT!

Old car buff «Louis» likes this!

He can't see enough of the car to tell you the exact year, but it is a Ford of the model years '49-'50-'51. «Louis» thinks it may be a '51.

Very nice reflection image, Lily. I like the old car and its white tyres!
