Mini Morris Wedding Car

The Odd Shots concept came from Katney. Say "G'day" to her.

The Monochrom monday concept came from Aileni at LOOSE ENDS

It looks like the flowers on the front of the vehicle have seen better days.

Still, the photography is excellent and inspirational.

Reminds me that when my wife, Patty and I got married 53 years ago, we were "belled" by friends. I don't think that is something widely known or done anywhere in the world these days. Back then it was great.

How clever! I love how you have combined these memes. Who got married? What a unique wedding car.
I love the different greens on the first one, but it works so well in b&w too.

I did all three memes, but separately. Two are on the regular blog and one on the new blog. Come see if you get time!

My friend

You took a rabbit, inside of the hat.

This post is great!

Aileni said...

A drop-head Mini - WOW. Makes a brilliant OddShot and a superb B&W.

very neat capture

earthlingorgeous said...

Oh wow I love the mini this is so awesome shot!

What a lovely wedding carriage. I love the bouquets both front and rear with whatever was available. Sometimes a sprig of greens grom the garden with love is so much more treasured than all the hot-house orchids or roses.

dot said...

Unusual post and you hit both memes right on the head!

John: What a neat way to decorate the flowers for the wedding.

Clever and rather touching flower photos. The color photo is bursting with personality. Thanks for making my day!

RuneE said...

Et (to) megetsigende bilde(r)! Det første vatr utrolig passende for anledningen - og veldig anderledes enn de fleste under dette meme. Veldig bra!

Jan said...

My first reaction was - I wonder why this car is wrapped, and has flowers. Now I know!

I just love this a Mini as a wedding car.......I used to work in the Austin factory, Longbridge in Birmingham which made these fantastic cars. Thanks for posting.

Wedding day? Nice choice!

pts said...

excellent job!

Katney said...

The first glimpse told me that the flowers were also an odd shot. Confirmation followed in black and white.

Ferreira-Pinto said...

The black and white Mini is just great.

JC said...

I love that first shot! Close up and personal...

Mojo said...

I've been known to combine 2 or 3 memes in one photo myself... especially when I can't decide which it fits better. I'm with the majority here I think... Love the B&W shot! They're both good, but there's something about B&W that just naturally goes with weddings.

Daryl said...

Clever!!!!!!!!!!! And really good shots ...

Your EG Tour Guide said...

How unusual, the flowers on the car! Fun shot. ;-)

Paz said...

Wonderful photos!

What a cute little car. Love the colors and the flowers remind me of a snowball bush up at my Grandma's house.

Mo said...

Haven't seen a convertible mini morris before. Cool car for a wedding. What was the bride wearing I wonder.

starnitesky said...

Great choice!

leslie said...

Fantastic! What a great way to combine the two memes. :D

Dragonstar said...

This is a fun and very different picture - not the usual kind of wedding car! Well done for spotting it.

Catherine said...

This Monochrome makes me plunge back in the 60's, (or what I suppose life looks like). It reminds me neorealist italian movies of this time. Very well-done.

Ida said...

Opptil flere bilder og temaer i "en smekk" her.
Stilig! :)
Det er vel på sin plass å ønske de nygifte lykke til også! ;)))

PERBS said...

Came looking for your odd shot and Today's Flowers too and found both very well portrayed. Great shots! Also love that shadow of the flowers on the bumper.

Come and see my odd shot and flower too.!

Denise said...

These are awesome photographs. Enjoyed them very much. Great share!

Patty said...

I like the shadows that show up on the side of the car on this one...Very nice.
