In response to a challenge issued by a great photographer Sylvain Landry, I’m posting this picture of a Red Car.

I know I may be a little late with this, but I’ve just got back from holiday and found this on a fellow-blogger’s site (see Marga Demmers’ blog). I had to post this as Sylvain’s challenge is Cars, and whilst he says he hates everything to do with cars, he mentions having a soft spot for any that are both old and red. And perhaps being parked under a NO PARKING sign will add to its appeal.

Now I know I am right.

    Oh dear me, maybe I have an OCD The pianos were really red that year, last year they were all blue!

      Just look at the red flower (poppy?) you use to represent yourself.

        Oh dear me. If it was anyone else I’d say they were attention seeking!

          Not really. Red is my favorite color (or should I say colour?) and you use it so well in your photos.

This one is great! I knew you would come up with something stunning. Thanks for the link to my blog.

    Thanks Marga. I saw this car when I came out of Boots the Chemist in a nearby seaside town a few weeks ago. I didn’t have camera (unusual for me) so used iPhone and edited it on phone too. Thanks again for pointing me in direction of this challenge, which I’d forgotten about. I think I saw it months ago but couldn’t understand how to enter. However …..a little patience and perseverance…..and hey presto!

      Perfect! I hope to see more of your SL-week photos in the future. Already any idea for the Wedding theme?
      I also have my camera with me most of the time. When I haven’t and spot a scene I certainly would have captured, the image remains indelibly printed in my memory. Impossible to share!

        Yes I know what you mean about images and memory.
        I don’t think I have anything for the wedding theme …..or…..maybe I have another pic of men in kilts going to a wedding in Scotland. I posted an almost identical one for a the challenge Group I think.
        Do you ever forget what pictures you’ve already posted?

          Not yet, as I have only started in December last year. But when I’m reaching the 100, it is very well possible (posting the 80th in a minute).

          We’re so busy. I don’t understand people who say they can’t fill their time when they retire.

          Marga Demmers · 15 May 2016 at 20:00

          Neither do I! Of late somewhat asked me how I was coping with that black hole after my retirement. At first I didn’t understand what she meant…
