Smart Parking  :-))

Smart Parking :-))



The Smart car allows back-in parking in a parallel parking zone....
But this type of parking in parallel-designated spaces is illegal in most countries..

Fantastic contrast and toning, Fong.
Masterful work, once again. *V*
Dan Greenberg08-Apr-2013 23:42
I would think it would be illegal since it extends out into the street further than a l car parked normally. Great dynamic B&W and a well thought out composition. ~BV~

Wonderful tones and interesting composition! V

Don Mottershead07-Apr-2013 05:42
Cool shot! The driver has a lot of faith that the other cars won't bump into his doors when they leave.
Barbara Read and Fred Schaad07-Apr-2013 04:31

Love this car, great in NY, can always squeeze into a space...not this way though! Super swell image.
Karen Stuebing06-Apr-2013 21:51

Jim Coffman06-Apr-2013 13:21
LOL!! This is so cool! I think one of those smart cars could get me in a lot of trouble!! :))
globalgadabout06-Apr-2013 13:13
clever indeed...parking is problematic in Rome, so this driver shows some resourcefulness..love those rich tones too...V
Zoltán Balogh06-Apr-2013 12:41
What a great capture...and great caption as well Fong! V
Char06-Apr-2013 12:17
Excellent black and white shot and interesting info on parking, Fong. It won't be long and you'll be able to carry your car in your pocket like a cellphone and push a button and it'll turn into a driveable vehicle then you'll never have to worry about parking. LOL \/
Pierre06-Apr-2013 11:21
Si ça ne fonctionne pas dans un sens, pourquoi pas dans l'autre! Une image splendide! V
