A reminder to readers in the Ottawa area that the Impressionist Treasures exhibit at the National Gallery ends on September 9th, and is well worth taking in. I paid a visit on Labour Day again and enjoyed it. Photos will be forthcoming down the line. Now then, to today's post...
"The difference between men and boys is the price of their toys."
One weekend in July I happened to go down to the farmer's market at Lansdowne. Nearby, a series of contemporary sports cars were out on show, some of them from dealers, some of them from private owners. The characters from the nonsensical noisy franchise otherwise known as The Fast And The Furious were nowhere to be seen.
This one was of course the oldest of the set, since DeLoreans haven't been built since the 1980s. This one is a match in colour for the one from the Back To The Future series, without Doc Brown's additions of time travel equipment. Weren't we supposed to have hover cars by now?
The Porsche and Aston-Martin side by side both caught my eye. There was no sign of suave British secret agents around the latter car, nor any sign that Q Branch had made any additions.
