Alrighty, people…gonna upload and run ‘cos my eyelids are getting all foldy. I’d thought of waiting till tomorrow to upload but I’ve been wanting to share these with you…so here you go. Taken on Tuesday in a multi-storey carpark of a newish shopping mall the parents and I went to check out.

Must’ve been hunger ruling the brain initially (who am I kidding, it always does) ‘cos I hadn’t noticed the squares after I’d parked the car. We had lunch, did a little roam, and it was only on the way back to the car did I go, “Whoa…check out the pattern on that car’s bonnet!” A bonnet I’d walked past earlier but, you know, tummy going growl growl growl and all that.

SO…whipped out the Ixus (had it in my pocket, which is rare ‘cos I usually leave it in the car), and took some shots.

V1 didn’t work well in mono, hence its non-mononess. Besides, I kinda wanted you to see what caught my eye anyway. Definitely couldn’t mono V4 ‘cos I LOVE that colour.

All shots noisy ‘cos cam set to ISO AUTO. V1 extra noisy ‘cos of my processing. Never mind, I wanted to draw your attention to the patterning anyway.

Enough rambling. Will catch up on your pics soon.

Night night Smile

Wow. What a great roof. And cars that look like waffles! V1's fantastic, but I think V5 has a little something extra. Wink

Too much dirt on my car to get a decent waffle pattern like that. An entertaining, well spotted set of images, Andrew.

Very well seen and captured, Andrew, they all look great, but V1 is amazing.
The last time I tried to take a picture of someone's car, wanting to capture some reflections, the owner came running up in a panic, thinking I was up to something sinisterSad .

Your observational skills are to be commended Andrew, such wonderful patterns from the ceiling of the car park reflected on the cars.
