Default Rule Britannia?



Mirror on a MiniCooper Type S I was parked next to. There was a Union Jack painted on the roof too. Kind of ironic, considering the car's made by BMW..

Great composition in terms of shape, and color. I like how the sun is reflecting off the blue stripe. Great blurring of the background to show of the main subject.

Yes, it is interesting that it sports a Union Jack although it is made by BMW now...but the Mini Cooper's British orgins and heritage are hard to erase...I always think of it as a quintissential British roadster!

Didn't Austin Powers...that international man of mystery have his Jaguar painted with a Union Jack paint job ?
