Smart and Colorful


On the way home yesterday this colorful little Smart car pulled up next to me. I only had a few seconds left on the red light to get my camera out of the bag and snap the shot. It was a hilarious few seconds but worth the effort.

Great!
I've never seen these artistic smart in Japan. It is nice design and nice color.

I know those hilarious seconds far too well! (so does my family as they moan in the seats behind me). You get a lot of great shots from your car, Randy! I wouldn't mind being your co-pilot for an afternoon -I'll bet it's an experience all in its own! (I'll bring the shakes.) ;)

Lúcia said...

Love the shot and the title!
Perfect for a Saturday's post. ;-)

Appropriately artistic car in Santa Fe. Great catch!

I like the pop art style of flowers. It should have been left at that. At least she will not have trouble finding her little car in the mall parking lot.

There are millions of Smarts here but none like this one! :-) Happy weekend!

Sharon said...

Great job! I've had a few of those humorous moments myself. Usually wnen the strap on the camera gets caught on something while I'm rushing to get it out.

I understand that...about getting the camera out at a stoplight! Great shot of new age hippie...I LOVE it!

Carola said...

beth said...

i'm not sure my camera bag would even fit in that car with me....but is sure is cute :)

Carlos Daniel said...

Wow, really nice captured

Armand Cordero said...

This is pretty neat, too bad it only carries two passengers. Someone's always gonna get left out ! Much better than my dirty car !

Jacob and Lois Anne said...

It certainly is an attention-getter. Probably not one a photographer should drive - most of the times I want to be anonymous and off in the background snapping away!

Magpie said...

What a design! There's someone who's not afraid to be noticed.

Janie2 said...

Worth every effort indeed. Great color. Cool blog, and I look forward to your posts.
