cv's street (tele)photo(ny) with a honk




video

These were taken two evenings ago when I got back home.
It's freezing cold, I'm tired and want to go in, I'm trying to lock the bike and... listen to those buggers having a (honking) go at me!
And that was just a couple of them making that racket, imagine when all 17 (at last count) get going.
Bloody nightmare they are but you have to love them, don't you?

That car's a honking beauty too. The owner not so much. Bit of a brute.
Why's that? The more impressive the car, the less impressive the owner. Yup. I know. No need to answer that one, it was pretty rhetorical anyway.

You wanted to hear them, Jane. So there you go, pet, yet another corner view under the belt.

  4. Excellent dear ninja! Looove the ducks, and most of all, love the effort!!!

    Anyone who owns a car like that is usually a bit of a brute, to say it mildly. We have more than our share here, ugh.

    oh and ps... my splash screen is of a moment shared by some feathered friends on the canal in Amsterdam. Popular little guys :^)

    My father is looking for a car(van) horn that sounds like ducks...
    I think they were actually laughing at you, they do it to me all the time too. At being a human I'm sure.

  15. In a village nearby someone started breeding geese last year (I think with foie gras in mind). The neighbors are most unhappy, but they haven't been able to get the geese moved.
