It's a darned good thing you gave that link because I don't think a soul would have believed you didn't make it up! Did you actually sit in the car and take a photo of the evidence? :shock:

Lol. I was browsing for a new book when I ran across that book at the local book store on the clearance rack. I knew I had the perfect shot waiting for me outside on my comrad's car which we had taken to the bookstore. The rest is history. I swear, not all my shots have to do with waste

Riiiiiiight.

Barb, don't you remember, this is one of the great children's classics, right up there with Mother Goose and Cats Bats and Things Like That, and all those great Richard Scary books. I think this was done by a relative of Theodore Geisel (Dr. Seuss).

Well done , JinE !
I think your shot is much better than the book one !

The "evidence" cannot be unseen !!!

Still , three more things add more drama to this gift from the sky :
1) The "explosive" shape
2) The DOF which attracts immediatly attention on the most focused area.
3) I appreciate the shot not being taken when your car was parked. The car is exactly in the middle , "like you were driving", hence enhancing a situation that can occur while driving.

I say it again : I think your shot is much better than the book one !

Don't care if you made it up or not. Made me laugh out loud.

Thanks, Suzan
