Day 92: The car seems clean


Day 92: The car seems clean, originally uploaded by susanvg.

A solid rain, yesterday, has washed my car. Winter is hard on cars here, with filth splashed up, sometimes as a fine mist, other times in a heavy spray. Cars begin to take on a uniform colour as the salt-laden spray coats the exteriors. Spring rain does its outdoor spring cleaning, washing away the winter grime. Streets and sidewalks are losing the layer of sand left after months of sand-spreading in attempts at keeping them accident free. In the spring sunshine, my car shone, reflecting the overhead view. Change of seasons. As spring progresses these branches will be laden with leaves, shading the car, keeping it cooler as summer approaches.

  2. My advice is don't park under a tree. The birds get much more to eat at this time of year ;)

  3. @Ian - that was part of what got washed off. Advice taken - but my street has many trees.

  4. What a great reflection on your rain-cleaned car! I think that sometimes seeing a reflected image is more though-provoking than seeing the thing directly.

  5. Great reflection! I had to smile about your cars all looking alike in the winter, we get that 'round here in the spring. When the pine pollen busts loose, every car is yellow.
