That's a really nice shot. I realise my latest photo-kink is blurry running people, is this indicative of some deepseated insecurity or does it mean I'm secretly in love with my mother or something? Please inform. Also, 'Pure Bathrooms' - what?

Do you know the painter L.S. Lowry? Lowry was from around these parts. My pedestrian looks just like one of his stick figures.

The background is fortuitous. I was concentrating on centring the little yellow car in the wing mirror. I was over the moon about the stick man and Pure Bathrooms. They are just right- and totally unplanned.

I love happy accidents.

Pure bathrooms as opposed to Profane ones? What would be the difference, I wonder?

You wouldn't want to know the kinds of things that people get up to in profane bathrooms.

Well, I suspect that asses' milk may be involved....

You're driving on the wrong side, buddy. And that double yellow line is supposed to be in the middle of the road!

Also, I love little yellow cars and want one of my very own.

Hehehe.

It's called a Mini Cooper- or so my wife informs me. Cute, eh?

We have them over here, and I would have gotten one as a replacement for Cleopatra except they are expensive!! Besides, Persephone and I are getting along splendidly.

They're a cult.

Largely thanks to that movie- the Italian Job

Oooo, I've never belonged to a cult. In my defense, though, what attracted me to them was their small size and good gas mileage.

Super shot!

MINI COOPER!

Pure Bathrooms? Are they all white or something?

Thanks.

And largely the product of chance. I wanted to get the Mini Cooper in the mirror, but I didn't know what else I was capturing until afterwards.

Pure bathrooms- who knows?

And we would say "restrooms," since there's no bathtub.

(At the moment, I have a "restroom" in my house.

As if one goes in there to "rest." Right.)

Are you driving, then?

"Pure bathrooms," eh? I guess here it would read "Clean bathrooms."

Sometimes I wish I lived in England. Everything is so much--classier.

Oh, no- I'm in the passenger's seat. We drive on the left, of course.

And I hate driving. I took about 20 lessons once and never conquered my fear.

Sometimes when I'm driving (which I've done since 14) I remind myself that I am in a little rolling box! But it's so habituated for me that I don't fear it much anymore--as I've said before, I'm increasingly timid on interstates around rushing trucks (they are everywhere here), and so I avoid those superhighways.

I like this photograph very much. It's a delight to me that you and Ailz have this new way of seeing the countryside.

I have to ask if you're just very lucky with these photographs, or if there are hundreds that you don't put here in your LJ, saving just the best for us. :)

Sometimes I shoot a whole lot.

But this happens to be a lucky one-off. I got the picture I wanted at the first attempt and didn't need to take any more.

A few days ago I took a whole slew of pictures through the windscreen in the rain and they were all of them rubbish.
