Parking Lot Blues
by goddarb

Love my camera and am working to improve. My photos are generally taken with a Nikon D3000 with either an AF-S Nikkor 18-55mm lens or a 55-300 mm lens. European shots and a number of more recent ones were taken with a Sony Cybershot camera. I have a new IMAC and play with the iPhoto program. I also crop judiciously. Constructive criticism is welcome.

    It sounds by the title if it was taken in a parking lot[as you call it] but I can’t work out where you saw it – great find anyway!

  • Well, I rented a very blue car this weekend. And on Sunday we took my nephew to catch the bus and the bus station is surrounded by a car park/parking lot all marked out with yellow paint so you can park in rows properly spaced. And I noticed the way the ends and sides of the car reflected the lines in strange ways – flowing the way the shape of the car went. On Monday I washed the car so there was no dust on it and went back. This is the best shot of the weird reflections.

  • I really don’t remember how I took the picture but the black line (upper left) is the line around the door at some point.

    Wonderful. If you really look at cars from a different perspective, all sorts of magic happens and you found that magic.

  • I find it fascinating – what can be captured. Like your motorcycle. Thank-you so much.

    Gee, Beth! This is LOVELY!

  • Neat isn’t it. If you are going to suggest a group it should probably be the one that insists that photos remain unchanged – right out of the camera – but then I probably cropped it. I love it for whimsy! Thank-you.
