Taken outside the place where we had lunch last Saturday at Cape Agulhas Smile I don't know how the owners of the restaurant feels about this !!
I really appreciate every vote and kind comment on my Boardwalk upload yesterday and special thanx to Jukka and Ivor for their mods - it teaches me to think outside the box Smile

Doubt if they'll be too pleased, their own property looking to be maintained on good nick, which can't be said of the car.
But the close association does allow for a good shot, Herman.

Nice juxtaposition of contrasts, Herman. Really good shot and composition, and I'll see you and call you on rust. I love shots of rust also. Something about the beauty of decomposition.
