Reminds me of this.

Rolling cars gather no roots.;-)

Steve, I guess that's one way of looking at it! I'm not sure Thierry and I had thought that far (forever) ahead, though...

Great picture!
It looks like the tree has really made the car its own.
Maybe the tree had been in love with this car (and it would never look back) so consipred to have the accident happen so it could finally hold its beloved in its arms?

Do you think they just . . . left? And never returned?

I love this one!

With a photo like that, no words are needed.

OOOOOPS!
Makes me think of "It's a wonderful life" or "Topper"
A store could be made.

That's a beautiful shot, even it highlights how much things we leave behind.
Your husband should make an exibition of his photos you know...

Love this photo!

Tinsie said...

Awww that's a classic, that is!! You could photograph it 4 times a year (one per season) and make a set :-)

Randal Graves said...

Very interesting shot, and tinsie's idea is excellent!

F.O.T. said...

Nature eventually....wins.

Thank you for all your comments on this photo.

I really enjoy posting our photos and seeing what ideas and interpretations you all come up with.

I agree with Tinsie -- one photo per season of this sight would be excellent. It's only a mile or so away from our house, so I'll keep that in mind.

Hahahaha!

The first time I met Michel, his car practically looked like this. There were even cobwebs on the side mirror and a hand print on dust, on the dash board.

I won't be surprised if someone picks this car up and tries to revive it.

Hi,

Betty C.,

I would like to thank you for the idea that came to me one morning to do "TGIFrance!" on Fridays.

I mentioned elsewhere that I got the general idea from a woman doing something on Wednesdays, but, at the time, I couldn't remember who it was or where I'd seen the Wednesdays leit motif.

Today I realized that it must have been you in combination with another individual who is using the same idea but with "mercredi" instead of Wednesday!

Your photo really is superb!

Amitiés,

Betty C. said...

Thanks for the comment, Franaméricaine. Actually Wordless Wednesday is a big blogosphere tradition -- there's a whole site devoted to it, but I don't always register my posts there.

TGIFrance sound fun too. Have you started it?

La Framéricaine said...

betty c.,

I didn't know about the Workless, oopppss!, Wordless Wednesday tradition in cyberspace but I know that your work stuck in my mind and informed my epiphany the first Friday that I posted a "TGIFrance!"

I've initiated it and done three Fridays, one was even a two-parter. I felt so accomplished and clever coming up with the idea and most certainly have you to thank, alors merci infiniement, Madame!

Amitiés,

This is great! I wonder what year this car started growing here?
