“F”

F

…and here is “F”… I count 34 items beginning with the letter F (you can only count the Fiats once, though!). Enjoy!

Oh! Bonus: See if you can find the mis-spelling. 🙂

“D and E”

D,E

I’m a little late posting this one… most naughty of me. You’ll likely want to click on this one to enlarge it to see as much as possible. I count 33 items in “D” and 15 in “E”. Enjoy!

“A”

This is something I started many, many moons ago, and have never quite finished. The idea was to come up with an “ABC” book based on automobiles and alliteration. I also wanted to try to populate the images with items that start with the letter… (in this case, “A). Some aren’t “hidden” (like the “Autobahn” sign), but others may be easy to overlook. There are 16 items hidden in this particular image.

I’ll be posting these letter by letter on Tuesdays. Spoiler alert… I’ve only “finished” to “J”, with sketches for K, L, and M. Let me know what you think (and find!). Enjoy!

P.S. The cars don’t count towards the 16 hidden items.

P. P. S. A sharp-eyed viewer has found another “A” item – so there are 17. Apologies – it’s been so long since I did “A” I’ve had to search the things myself!

P.P.P.S: Another found 18! 🙂

British Car Day, 2017

Honda S600

yeah, I know – it’s a Honda S600. First one I’ve seen in the flesh – and where was it? Just at the end of the line of Deloreans beside a pristine S600 Coupé. They weren’t properly “displayed” as part of the show, but were somewhat cheekily parked just close enough to the action to be very much a part of everything.

Made my day.

Austin Healey Sprite, Nancy, France

Nancy

Not the car you might expect to see in eastern France – but there it was. We only stayed in Nancy a single night (which was way too short), but it was there when we arrived, had left by the evening and was right back there first thing in the morning – so I assume that it is a regular there. The car was “driver quality” and was driven by an older woman who appeared to use it for her daily driver. Very cool. We’d just come in from Switzerland where everything is very much “by the book” and we were paying for parking just up the street from this, rifling our pockets for coins. A woman walking by said “you needn’t pay for the whole time you’re here. Just pay for an hour – that’s enough to make the police happy. So we did. And she was right. Vive le France. 🙂

Old Barn near Murren

Murren

This was a very old barn near Murren in the Bernese Oberland. It’s a beautiful area and a “way station” on the way to the cable car to Piz Gloria. Getting here required a train down from where we were staying in Wengen, a cable car halfway up the mountain across from our chalet and a train ride across the side of the mountain to the village.

Old Buildings, Basel

Basel

I didn’t get to do a lot of “on-site” sketching this past trip for various reasons, but took lots of photos as there was loads of interesting subject matter. The perspective in this particular sketch was rather tricky and took a couple of times to get right – the mixture of the steeply uphill lane with the buildings protruding on different angles made this something of a challenge. Basel is a lovely city.
