When this theme was first announced, I wasn’t sure how I wanted to go about it. As the month went on, I had a couple of shots with my phone, but nothing really stood out. Then the idea came to me.
With having a new car since late December, I thought maybe I could do five shots with the car. Alas, I wasn’t feeling it — at least how I envisioned it. So I put it off until the last day, figuring I’d be able to force myself into something. Then a better option came along.
A friend stopped by today and he had a new car — so new it had fewer than 200 miles on it. Even better, it’s a car I’ve not had a lot of experience with (it’s a Mini Cooper), so it became the perfect subject, at least for me, for this month.
Below are my five shots, looking at this new car in different views.
For the record, this is a pretty nice car. They are surprisingly roomy inside (though I can’t imagine having four people in there) with ample legroom and it’s comfortable. The six-speed manual transmission is really nice and all the bells and whistles are quite cool. Even better is that it’s an affordable car. I’m not sure I could see myself in this car, per say, but it’s definitely nice.
Anyway, without further ado, here are my five for the month. The link for the challenge is below! Try to visit and comment on everybody else’s so we can see what everybody did!
1. New ride
Darren with his new baby — a Mini Cooper.
With the landscape of our local area in the background, it’s quite the nice little car. Roomy and pretty nice to look at.
The backside of the mirror of the car provided a way to have a form of a portrait.
I am a fan of manual transmission myself, so it’s always nice to see when others like it as well. The shifter in the Mini is pretty nice.
The steering wheel is nice and compact, which is always good in small cars like this!
And that’s my five for the month.
If you took part this month, make sure you link up below. And for those who participated, make sure you try and get to other people’s blogs and comment and visit so we can continue to grow this challenge. Don’t forget, too, to come back tomorrow, Tuesday, July 1, and see the theme for May! NOTE: I also set up a Facebook group for those who participate in the challenge and are interested. I’ll post any announcements there and hopefully it can be a place where things are discussed and some interaction etc. You can access it here.
