Rorschach tested car
What do you see? Take care though, the Rorschach test can be used to detect underlying thought disorders. What I see must remain a secret not to expose my bent psyche to the blogosphere. I suppose it could be a happy monster. A driver attribute or something to do with the car?
Pink – word a week challenge
I’ve not done this before, to participate in one of the weekly challenges in the blogosphere. But then ‘a word in your ear’ had this a word a week challenge – pink. Sometime there has to be a first time, and I thought I had something I recently shot.
If it ain’t pink I don’t know what is. But then, I’m a bit colour blind. It’s not a great shot exactly; it was a rainy day and there was this one window that was dry. What I was really after was the wonderful in-car phone. The car was found parked along a canal in Amsterdam.
The First Smart Car (?) and more
I’m taking a few days off from my project and, symbolically, I’ve driven out of South Australia. I landed in Mildura, Victoria. Not a big hit, a blob of suburbia and motels. Sorry Mildura. Nicely situated on the Murray though. I proceeded post haste to NSW and Broken Hill. There I found what must surely be one of the first prototypes of the Smart for 2 car!
A bit away from Broken Hill, in Silverton, I found this fine museum! Alas, I cannot divulge the secrets of this fine museum since I could not bring myself to part with 7.5 dollars to peek inside.
On the way back to Broken Hill I found this. In spite of a fairly serious investigation I never figured out the benefit of a ticket purchase. Nor, I could add, where the elusive ticket was sold. Nope, the hut is not it. It’s a long time since the hut was anything actually, it sits on top of a railway siding. No train has passed for the last 40 odd years.
Just for the record: I do enjoy Broken Hill; it’s well worth a couple of days of one’s time.
