For the past 2 months I have been going for 1 to 2 mile morning walks to get in a little exercise and also to clear my head. This morning while walking through my neighborhood I came across this VW Super Beetle. From the looks of the bumpers I believe this is a 1973 (which was the first year 5 mph bumpers were required). This Beetle brings back so many fond memories of my youth because in 1973 I purchased my first new car which was ironically a 1973 VW Super Beetle. For those of you that are not VW Beetle fans the Super Beetle featured a curved windshield, redesigned dashboard and a blower motor to control the heat output (very high end for a Beetle). Regular Beetle’s featured a flat windshield and the more conventional convection heating system. Both systems were still controlled by 2 levers in between the front seats but there was much less chance of your breath fogging up the front windshield on hot humid summer days and cold winter mornings. Photo was taken with my iPhone 12 Pro Max.

My wife’s an interior decorator, she would say this composition is “busy”. Well, it’s definitely busy. But that was my intent when I “saw” this shot. My hope is, for the viewer to experience all the “scenes” or compositions contained within by navigating the lines, shapes and patterns. The composition is looking down on Av. Vaudoyer, near the Promenade Robert-Laffont at the Port of Marseille, France.
Waiting in the lounge for my flight back to Norway.
