2CV by rich57

2CV

On my quick dash to the sandwich shop to get some sustenance I noticed this nice looking house, with it's nice looking 2CV. I was also taken with the green door although it hasn't come out well. This house is fairly representative of the houses in the area near my office.

On ordering my lunch I realised i'd left my wallet behind and had to persuade the new employee to let me have some credit as I was strapped for time and had already foregone breakfast so was feeling fairly hungry by this time. I need to remember to take £3.94 in tomorrow!

Hahaha ... make the new guy pay. ;-)

What a funny looking car. What is it?

@dmortega It's a Citroen 2CV, a French car. It's got a great gearstick that sticks out the middle of the dashboard. I'm sure that's about right, mind I don't drive myself!!! Hope this is another new thing for you to learn....

Comforting to know that people are still good and are willing to help a fellow human out! Cool ride

Lovely photo! I love it. I so love getting to see people's neighborhoods all over the world (I live in Florida). This isn't a vacation brochure or a guided tour- it is just regular folks living their lives. Cool!

Glad you had someone to cover for your lunch so you did not have to go hungry! Ha! Great car! Like this neighborhood shot.

Great picture and I am glad you got to have lunch!

There is so much I like about this post Richard. Apart from the picture itself it makes me smile to think you went out with your camera but without your wallet! lol Priorities!!! :-) How good to know they gave you credit...you must be a regular. The house here looks so solid and homely and I just love the car. Altogether a lovely posting. Do you do anything to your pictures to give them such clarity ie on the windows?

There is something about this i really like. Maybe its how the car and the house have the same balance, the left hand sides having more shapes, whatever it is, it really works.

Great shot! It almost looks staged. I really like the clarity of a lot of your shots, including this one :)

This is so cute. I love those little cars and they way this shot is composed is great. I like the bits of blue on the car and in the windows.

February 17th, 2011

@azza_l it's the place that I got my "365" lunch from a few months back. Know exactly what you mean about the "not just the photos". Got that Lumix with manual settings today, seems like fun. Working up to getting a new DSLR in the next few months too!

Ah love that 2CV - nice pic with the bluey tinge to the reflections in the windows too.
