Default My new toy

I picked up this Mini Cooper S yesterday and took it to one of my shooting areas at DFW. These things are a hoot to drive and my wife is poised to claim it as her own.

Congratulations on the Mini Cooper (as its called on this side of the pond). Indeed a framefilling photo. I've considered one for myself. Glad there's a family consensus on the purchase. Good luck with it. A driver's car, for sure


"Every man", he says thoughtfully, "should pull a boat over a mountain once in his life". And then, once again, he laughs at himself. (About Werner Herzog) TTL Photography (True To Life Pictures) My Zenfolio Photo site is at http://torgnydellsen.zenfolio.com/

The pictures are optimized for slideshows. The slideshow button is at the upper right. Please use your loudspeakers. There is some music, progressive music from the seventies in the different galleries.

A year on I hope you are still enjoying the Cooper S, I've had mine for 9 years and had a Cooper for 2 years before that. It still puts a grin on my face.
