Earnestly indeed, Ciel! :-)

SMART parking and quite a SMART looking car!
I like the look of the parking area too!:-)
A nice shot, JM.

Perfect and important--maybe Earnest was driving the car and now he is Smart. Or maybe not!! MB

Leif Hagen said...

Wow - parking is a breeze with that car - smart indeed! It's such a cute, little car - I might have gone up and hugged it!

This car looks like it would be easy to park, even when those trees get fatter.

This is a fantastic photograph! What incredible colors and the lines are so sharply delineated! We are seeing more and more Smart cars in Ocala! In fact, just yesterday we saw two on one of our main roads. They must be catching on. But they seem so small and dangerous when next to some of the huge pickup trucks and SUVs that inhabit our streets!

Tu estas um artista!!:))

Great color in this shot. We are seeing more of these little cars here too. Like Jacob, I wonder about how it feels to sit in one with big trucks all around you. I like them though.

Jarart said...

I forgot to ask you, what kind of trees those are?

I love these little smart cars. Before they came to the US, I was on a trip to London with my dad and he wanted to go into a dealership and get a better look at one. We did and it was fun talking to the salesman and sitting behind the wheel.

I was realy curious about those trees so I'm glad I read your comments and found out they are Floss Silk Trees. I don't think I've seen one before.

I like the composition Jose. Here we call those Kapok Trees (Ceiba pentandra) locally called Knob Thorn. Messy but very beautiful.

I love the title of this post (the connation of the great Irish, ha)and of course the photo!
By the way, Casimiro de Brito is great for me (however, I know only what is published in the internet!)

T. Becque said...

Very smart composition! :) You've got good symmetry going on here too with two windows, two trees, then a splash of red in the middle!

Marie-Noyale said...

Almost room for another one!!!

VP said...

This image is beautiful in so many ways: composition, content and colors. I won't tell where they try to park Smarts here...

Cezar and Léia said...

What a great shot ... all simple flowing lines and clean colours. Love it.

studioJudith said...

Vibrant visuals here .. .

Jjj

Birdman said...

Fabulous car against the whiteness!

Wolynski said...

Love those little half cars. The trees are most unusual - look like giant vases. Great photo.

Serra said...

Mais uma magnífica foto!
Estas árvores são sumaúmas (de flor amarela, as mais comuns são de flor cor-de-rosa). São da família dos baobas (Bombacaceae).
Abraço

Dean Grey said...

JM!

I've never seen trees like that before! So unique!

Do they flower or bear any kind of fruit?

This is an amazing shot. What a wonderful contrast~ structure, nature, technology, color...
I've never seen those trees before either... they're beautiful.
