Volkswagen Beetle

Volkswagen Beetle

A Volkswagen Beetle in Blarney reminds me that not everyone has bought a shiny new car. It even has the old style number plates. Does anyone know what year and county “WFI” relates to?

I love how this image is framed by the old fence. B&W works particularly well because of the timeless nature of the subject.

If you know Blarney, this was shot from the car park of Blarney Castle and I posted a shot of the other side of this building in my Emerald House B&B post a while back.

PS. New theme, what do you think?
PPS. David Lavery has posted the Photographer of the Year results on the Mallow Camera Club website. 1 point more and I would have drawn on 3rd place in the novice section.

  1. we used to call the guy who owned this car “flash gordon” due to the speed in which he used to drive it around Blarney. Very slow, very very slow…

  2. Thanks for the comments guys!

    Alan – why does that seem familiar. Did I read that on your site?

    Donal – I know, it’s an unusual way of showing that info. I may change it depending on how traffic levels and feedback go over the next few days.
