In contrast ...

From the beauty of a local park (yesterday) to the underside of my car (today). It needed a new exhaust.
Good news - you can drive in and have it replaced immediately.
Bad news - you are invited to pay for it before driving out again!
LOL! Now that's a scenic shot heheh! Totally essential and sums up your day. Interesting shot!!

Ouch, that hurts. Maybe you could offer to take portraits of the crew for payment;-)

Now that's a shot of real life! Hope it didn't hurt you too much in the purse!

elizabeth, somebody left this comment on facebook about my tree shot "In Ireland a tree that stands alone is called a Fairy tree and thought to have special powers or to serve as the abode of the fairies, it's cool Irish folklore ;) They say you shouldn't touch them!" true ??

there is always a down side to everything i suppose ;-)

@rophoto Yes, true. Much folklore about people who disregarded the instruction - applies usually to old solitary hawthorn (sometimes oak or ash) and applies even more to a stand of one each of the three fairy trees: oak, ash and hawthorn.

Good shot! I know that feeling - especially of having to part with a lot of money after the job is finished!

great shot to show what you did today!! Hope it wasn't too pricey!!
posted October 22nd, 2010  
Aw, that's really rubbish. You got a great photo from it though. :-)

Now this is a daily photo. It reminded me to take my car in for service. Thanks! Nice capture of what is taking place in your life on this day, hope it wasn't too pricey!

We have these places here, too. The last time I went to one, though, they put on a muffler that was waaaaayyyyy too small for my car and I went putt...putt...putt all the way home. (Eventually figured it out and had to get it replaced at another establishment)

For the right price, but at least it was easily fixed.

Great shot & ouchies new exhausts are not cheap! x

Funny how these businessmen want their pay! Look at it this way -- You got a great shot along with a new exhaust system.

Glad to hear the Good News...sorry there was Bad News attached to it : ) The other Good News is that you got a great photo out of it!

Great shot Elizabeth. You should have told them that you were putting their shop in your blog. They might have given you a discount.

@sarasdadandmom Oh, I did .... and that's when I discovered that I wasn't permitted to do so! That's why I've not named the company and fuzzed out anything that might give a clue to their brand! Apparently they have a dedicated team who search out, and have removed, anything to do with the company!!!!
