Seems to be an extraordinary amount of dazzle from a small area of the bonnet.

Sylvia said...

Great picture! You had to lay down on the ground for this one, for sure!

Janet said...

I like the raindrops in the foreground.

RuneE said...

I preferred the large one - and i liked that low perspective.

Lucy Corrander said...

Hello Aileni

It's one of those occasions when the sun picks on something quite ordinary and does something special with it.

Nice reflection on the car

Hello Sylvia

I like the way having a camera in hand gives one the confidence to crawl around on the pavement or the undergrowth.

A few weeks ago quite an elderly gentleman came running to help me. He'd just pulled a boat up onto the beach and saw me down on the ground and thought I was ill. I'm glad he laughed when I popped up perfectly ok and showed him what probably looked like a very insignificant row of weeds on the edge of the cliff! Chasing up a bank to rescue a non-invalid probably wasn't the way he was planning to rest after rowing.

Hello Janet.

Funny the different things which leap out at us. My eye gets drawn to the puddle!

Lucy

Lucy Corrander said...

Thanks Rune. I like to take photos from ground level. That and looking straight up . . . ordinary things which the eye usually wouldn't see.

Lucy

P.S. I put the little photo there to be clicked and the bigger one for looking at in the whole. L.

Tanja - It's funny about the light reflecting from the car because, when I started to take the photo, that wasn't what caught my eye - even though it landed up being important!

Danton said...

That dazzle/ sparkle made the difference. Good shot.

Lucy Corrander said...

Hello Danton.

Thank you - and you are right. That light strike is pivotal.

This is neat, looks like it was taken in the morning.

Hermes said...

Can't be my car, the wheel is not ON the kerb! I love the idea of you being taken for ill crawling around taking pictures (lol).

Lucy Corrander said...

Hello Just Me Again.

Well . . . morning and afternoon have a lot in common!

Lucy

Lucy Corrander said...

Hello Hermes.

One day, I'll come a-cropper. I'll be dieing in agony and people will pass by saying 'It's ok, she's photo-ing that stone again.'!

James said...

Hello Lucy. I really like your photographic style, in this picture and the several other pictures that I looked at.

I feel inspired after looking at them.

Della said...

You must have been flat on the ground here.

Tyra in Vaxholm said...

Great work Lucy, the reflection and the angle...

Anne said...

A very spesial perspective, oh yes!!

John said...

Nice perspective shot.

michael bird said...

The enlarged photo brings in the prominence of the kerb which might also serve as a cobbled walk for some small critter. Nifty.

Kitty said...

This is such a cool angle! Like a snail's eye view :) That little twinkle of sunlight makes the car look happy.

And thanks so much for your comment! I didn't want to risk editing any of the pictures - they looked OK on the camera screen, but on my computer screen there were a lot of completely black patches. I think I should try to find another screen...

Kilauea Poetry said...

I like your choice..the angle as well as the raindrops here in mono-

Unseen Rajasthan said...

Beautiful and lovely shots !! Nice post..Unseen Rajasthan

Mo said...

Like the angle you have taken this shot

Frank said...

Lucy - Your photos are so well seen and rise above the ordinary. You have a great eye and even if elderly gentlemen think you need a hand up after falling in the street, please keep taking photos from the street level if you think it best. It sure makes for terrific images.

I welcomed you as a Follower at Tampa Daily Photo (I hope others will visit Pictures Just Pictures) and appreciate your interest in my part of the world here on Florida's Gulf Coast. Dorset is fascinating and I'll keep an eye on your blog and discoveries. - Frank

Regina said...

Great captureerni.

Daryl said...

Interesting angle

BPOTW said...

Quite interesting, indeed.

Lucy Corrander said...

Hello BPTOW, Daryl and Regina

Sorry it has taken so long to thank you for your comments about the 'Car in the Kerb' photo.

I'm not very efficient at this - but I appreciate your visits, none the less.

Lucy

Lucy Corrander said...

Kitty, Kilau Poetry and Mo - I'm doing a bit of catching up with comments. Thank you for remarking upon the angle in the 'Car in the Kerb' photo. It's often how something really boring takes on a new aspect.

Lucy

Lucy Corrander said...

Hello Unseen Rajesthan.

I'm not sure I would consider this car beautiful - but am glad you liked the photo.

Lucy
