Tina's Pic Story - Reflective


The picture is worth many words - perhaps as many as 1000. Yet we hope to look first at the picture to see if we can figure out the scene - but sometimes an explanation is okay, too.

Tina thoughtfully hosts her fun meme, Tina's Pic Story. We enjoy this because we all have a few views to share, and the varied weekly theme is chosen by her. This week it is reflections.

This past Saturday, daughter Allegra and I went to a street fair in our town of Ansonia (CT), known as the Harvest Festival. It was a not typical cool Autumn day, but sunny and warm with a temperature of 78°F (26°C), a day to enjoy the outdoor sights.

Here is a beautiful old car, a 1932 Cadillac LaSalle 'rumble seat' coupe. It is a stunning burgundy in color, and with the strong sun, allowed for reflections of the both of us and the 1932 magazine sitting on the running board. Allegra uses her phone to capture us admiring the car. The car has a classy style that reflects well - what about us?

Interesting photograph.

I have to check out this picstory meme. Do the stories have to be true? Full disclosure, I am a notorious liar.

That is a great shot. I love antique and classic autos. This one really had a mirror finish and made for a fantastic reflection.

Glad you two had fun while I was out looking for fall foliage.
