Photographer's Note

A smile of a different kind this time…headlights for eyes, a logo for a nose and a grill for a mouth stretching across like a big grin. I’d be quite satisfied too if I were worth this much and resided in Monte Carlo. :)

This was actually a happy surprise, as I had only thought of placing the high priced car in the same frame as the casino to pull together some of glitz and glamour that abounds in Monaco…nothing more than that concept in terms of composition. It was only later that night when taking a closer look through my pictures that I noticed what appeared to be a smiling car.

Just as I had clicked the shutter, the owner of this fine automobile came up and jokingly said, “Oh, you don’t want to take a picture of this, it’s very dirty.” What he was seeing I don’t know, because it sure looked pristine to me.

I often have people in mind when taking pictures, or even well after the fact, making an association between the subject material and personal likes…and this one brings to mind quite a few. Because of its modern nature, and the fact he’ll be in Italy soon as part of a vacation, Craig (macjake) is the one that first popped into my little brain. What do you think…if he’s going to want a souvenir from his trip, wouldn’t one of these make for an awesome, lifelong reminder of Italy? lol

Thanks for stopping by.
