Liesl

first there was Evie, a 1974, yellow Volkswagen Beetle (pictured under the tree in a previous image)

then, there was Liesl, a 1960, beryl green Volkswagen Beetle

now, i’ve sold them both

always name your cars a beautifully appropriate name

I hooked up my accelerator pedal in my car to my brake lights. I hit the gas, people behind me stop, and I’m gone.

    I like this shot, the right car at the fork, and the two side trees that are against the background. Then the Beetle, takes me back to my youth, I’ve had one too, cabriolet.

    That is a wonderful composition and I love the desaturation. An all around excellent shot.

    my family never named our vehicles, but my wife introduced me to the practice, I now regard it as essential. A cute classic beetle,

    I like the timeless feel of this photo. We had a more recent VW Beetle. It was red and had a mind of its own, so we called it Herbie.

    A wonderful photo! Love the “aged” look to it! We’ve always named our cars. Our current little SUV is called Roxie Rogue…. A Nissan Rogue – we named her on her virgin road trip over rough, unmaintained dirt roads and through deep sandy desert washes. After a near vertical assent, I said “This car’s got moxie! OH! We’ll call her Roxie!” 🙂

    I remember your Evie, Sherri. Did you like one more than the other, I wonder? I can imagine all the good times you remember with them both.

    Bravo pour l’excellence du traitement qui restitue harmonieusement le coté ancien, vintage de l’époque coccinelle.

    Oh, I should have remembered!! And upon revisiting this lovely space, I knew the bug was yours but, honestly, had forgotten she was named Evie. And there is also a Liesl. I hope they are with others who will give them the respect they deserve. What a heartwarming thought.
