Often it is the unexpected that gives me a real thrill and is a reminder to always have the camera at hand. While waiting for the ferry at home on Salt Spring Island, I noticed this Volkswagen in one of the lines of cars. The fake tiger fur across the top of the image makes a suggestive dramatic contrast against the strong blue bottom covered  with scattered white magnetic strips of words. Upon closer investigation, the words caused a smile. The division of the photograph into four uneven colourful rectangles gives a strong graphic presence.
