A fair bit of lightning around last night with some storms going past. Unfortunately a lot of strikes were hidden behind other clouds so these are the best ones I could manage.

This is a random but intriguingly strange snapshot on two levels:

  • It’s a purple Rolls Royce with a “can’t drive faster than 70” sign.
  • It’s a picture I took slightly zoomed in on my S10e which makes it look a bit like I’ve applied a comic strip filter to it due to over-smoothed fields with comparable colour and over-heightened contrast.

I bet it’s armoured. The weight would put it in a truck category or something like that.

Interesting thought! Must be an exciting life if it brought you a purple Rolls Royce but also the need (or enough fear) to armour it. There’s enough for a little philosophical, psychological, economics, automotive, sociology, and so on booklet there. Each chapter one perspective.

Yes, I was really impressed with how well it worked out. I was walking along a tree lined lane and saw the sun coming through the clouds in a gap in the trees and thought I’d try my luck…

Lucky enough for a weekend break with the family. Headed to the beach tonight for an amazing sunset.
