POLKA DOT LIGHTING

I have to continue my narrative on our Black Forest vacation while I sort out the recent Sicily trip pictures.

This shot was taken on 4th July, 2015 – the 9th day of our vacation.

It was on the road to Colmar when, as we entered this tunnel, I saw this weird space-looking scene with all those dots of light on the ceiling and reflected on the road below and on the walls. We were driving (my son-in-law was) at the maximum permissable speed but my camera was set and ready as I always do for shots as we drive along.

Joke: The Pope goes to Havana, and gets picked up at the airport by a limousine. He looks at the beautiful car and says to the driver, "You know, I hardly ever get to drive. Would you please let me? Here nobody knows me."
The driver is understandably hesitant and says, "I'm sorry, but I don't think I'm supposed to do that."
But the Pope persists, "Please?"
The driver finally lets up, "Oh, alright, I can't really say no to the Pope."
So the Pope takes the wheel, and boy, is he a speed demon! He hits the gas and goes around 100 mph in a 45 zone. A policeman notices and pulls him over. The cop walks up and asks the Pope to wind the window down. Startled and surprised, the young officer asks the Pope to wait a minute. He goes back to his patrol car and radios the chief.
Cop: Chief, I have a problem.
Chief: What sort of problem?
Cop: Well, you see, I pulled over this guy for driving way over the speed limit, but it's someone really important.
Chief: Important like the mayor?
Cop: No, no, much more important than that.
Chief: Important like the governor?
Cop: Way more important than that.
Chief: Like the president?
Cop: Much more important.
Chief: "Who's more important than the president?"
Cop: "I don't know but he has the Pope DRIVING for him!"
Thank you so much for looking and for the lovely comments on yesterday's and previous pictures.

A beautiful shot of the tunnel and all those lights. I never have met some one from Malta . (And I love most of the modern paintings. They are often so much more as only a pic. )

Fabulous patterns and lights! It seems like this could make drivers slightly dizzy, or maybe it's just me. :)

Love light patterns and the abstract effect . the lines of lights are so strong they almost suck you into the shot - cool!
September 26th, 2015  
Wow- that looks so cool! But I think it would throw my eyes off to have to drive through it. Great shot!
