The eyes have it......

Even race cars need a little adornment.

I always wanted to lie naked on a bearskin rug in front of a fireplace. Cracker Barrel didn't take kindly to it.

    Thanks, buddy. I really wrestled with this one. Walking down a row of race cars, it caught my attention big time. I kept looking at it. There are some issues, but once I locked in on those eyes, I was toast. I went ahead and shot the image....hoping that the pull it had on me would transfer over into what I recorded. I still can't escape those eyes. I think you're right. The dent ( not really a dent but some contours in a body panel ) sprinkles some reality to a scene that could foster illusions. I know this one is not for everybody.

    Tom....

    Instantly reminded me of....

    "You know the big percentage in roulette
    And that is why you never place a bet
    You've talked to sev'ral horses that have won
    And once or twice you knew who'd win before the race was run
    You know what's coming when the cards are cut
    You're on to each and ev'ry racket, but

    You're a sucker for a dame
    The pucker of a dame will make you jump
    Just like a chump

    When you gaze into her eyes
    The springs that make you wise refuse to work
    And you're a jerk.

    I've seen you playing poker with three aces
    A hand of which you're very, very fond
    You knew that your opponent had three deuces
    But it happened your opponent was a blonde

    So you just threw your cards away
    And thought about the day when you became
    A sucker for a dame."

    Title: You're A Sucker For A Dame
    Artist: Irving Berlin

    As for the image itself....wonderful!

    On what type of auto did you find this particular "art?"

    Gee, Al, you may have just explained my fascination with this piece of art. It was on a race car ( see below ). I think the placement of this alluring lady on the body of a forceful, competition race car is an incongruity that grabs one's attention.

    That's what I was talking about, David. I get mesmerized looking at those eyes.
