With this photo I start my partecipation in new Scavenger Hunt. In a sunshining morning I was bringing my sons to school when I met an old black Vespa. Focus of my camera on its dirty and scratched body. Do you remember Robert De Niro in “The Deer Hunter”? Only a shot: and this is the result.
Guys, I was lucky it wasn't a tiger!

Original. Bonne capture car on devine parfaitement ce dont il s'agît. Bravo pour cette prouesse.

The dirty surface created very interesting reflection, Gae! I think that this way even some more details were added to the composition..;-)) Very creative shot. Wish you good luck for the Hunt!

Very good find for the scavenger hunt. I like this gritty feel with the scratches and the distorted reflection. It's an interesting view of the world, too, through such a common item. Like if the Vespa had eyes this is what it would see. Very nicely spotted out and photographed.

Yes I remember De Niro. One of the best actors in the world because he's able to play so many different roles with talent and perfection. A part from this, good unique shot Gae. Excellent indeed. Because there's no doubt on what it's going on here. Moreover the blurred reflection is still perfectly "readable". Astonishing catch, very well seen, Fine work Gae, and a nice add to the S/H.
