Country Cruise-in


Back side of car mirror

Last Saturday my sister- and brother-in-law and I attended the Cool Country Cruise In behind the East Gwillimbury Civic Centre.  Besides photographing old cars, I caught a few fun reflections.

 Modern white E.G. Civic Centre reflected twice in side of old red Ford

 People who love their old cars sure do keep them clean and shiny!

You're right, good old cleaned cars always offer great reflections !

Lowell said...

Two things: 1) Very creative reflection shot...most would use the mirror for a reflection. 2) Your town hall is quite impressive.

Re your question on Ocala: Yes, it is a moving sign - I just caught at the right time! Or wrong time! :)

Old cars look wonderful in the sunshine. There will be a couple of car shows here through the summer, I'll probably go along with my camera. Nice pictures.

a lot of money - a lot of work - a lot of pride! :)

Judy said...

I like those reflections. Your town hall is sleek and modern looking. It is very white and when it snows it might blend in.

I love old cars and I know the owners are very proud of their vehicles, some of which have had 'extreme makeovers'. I like the reflection of the new in the old.

Fun shots!

Halcyon said...

I also went to an "oldtimer" show (as they call them here) last weekend. It was neat to see all the old cars and motorcycles, but a little too hot!
Neat reflections and hope you have a great weekend.

RedPat said...

Great reflections, EG! Car cruises are always such fun!

Pondside said...

Hmmmm - no one will ever catch a reflection in the side of my dirty little car!

Linda W. said...

Nice reflections - especially your first shot.

Gail Dixon said...

The car mirror reflection is amazing. What pristine condition these old cars are in.

cieldequimper said...

So clean that they are still wet!

Small City Scenes said...

They spend hours and hours shining them. We have a car show in Stanwood in August. The car club 'Twin City Spoilers'. MB

Andrea Priebe said...

Cars are great subjects for reflections and especially the old, restored, spit shined kind. Great find, awesome pictures and lucky you to get to go to a show like that.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Vintage reflections .. love the double reflection EG.

Marie said...

Fun! Bright red sports cars are always so exciting! great reflections!

Ruth Kelly said...

I don't think that would work on my car. The backside of the side mirror is painted. This one worked really well. Great job!

edenhills said...

They make for some awesome reflections!

Pat Tillett said...

That is such a shiny paint job. Nice reflections and photos.
