We can only imagine what happened, only an accident or sometihng more serious, more violent... great cap!

Martina - thanks for your comment today. I know I have been here before but I can't remember when. I just love this concept and your photographs. It doesn't look as if I was smart enough to follow your blog last time I was here. I won't make that mistake again.

Haha, I love this photo/quote combination! The cement (?) with its mottling makes a nice backdrop for the slick surface and hard edges of the glasses.

ana barata, someone more talented than me could make a short story about this ;-) - in my imagination someone had to leave the casino very very fast and lost his/her sunglasses on the way, ;-).

But in fact ...

kobico, the sunglasses were in the Mercedes' vicinity on the road (I guess it is asphalt) - a really deserted area on the weekends: garages, shipyards - nothing else. No casino, no highlife anywhere, ;-).

half-life of linoleum, thank you. Since I only commented on one blog the other day I am wondering who you might be .... I don't know any of your profile-listed blogs (though throwtographs is much to my taste :-)) ... still wondering ...

there is something forbidding about all those edges.

The quotes you put with the images ARE short stories ... very short ones.

Martina said...

Mary Ann, hm .. forbidding like in ... ?

Joan Elizabeth, *g* I try.

oh - Hi Martina - I have one other blog under an ID that is older than I am. the site is 'if the walls could. . . talk.' So I will leave this comment with that ID. . . I'm glad you liked the throwtographs - that makes you one in a hundred million. Thanks for letting me know.

I was just checking back in to thank you for that comment on if the walls could talk (which is where this profile should lead).

Martina said...

koe, oh, too .. ;-) - yes, I thought it might have been you but then I thought, hmm, better ask - the rest on throwtographs, :-).
