Hey Nicely composed picture. What was it written under the DANGER sign though ?

Jacob said...

Hi KC...the "Danger" sign is there to try to get Parisian drivers to slow down as they are driving into a tunnel that is dark and narrow...

Doesn't work, of course, which is understandable if you've ever seen Parisian drivers in action.

Have a great day!

Great angle shot. Look how small that car is. It's probably one of those new electric cars.

The small car to which Denise Jelonek refers, is a Smart Car. It is a collaboration between Mercedes and the Swatch Watch Company. Recently, they have been appearing quite a lot in the US. Mine is on order, but it takes about fourteen months for delivery. Oh, and it's not electric.

You're right again, Starman...I first saw them in Paris and was surprised at how little they are. We've got a few in Ocala, but this is a town of big trucks and big SUVs...and the latter like to run over little cars, so I don't think they'll be a big seller...good luck with yours...14 months? Yikes!
