Shine, sparkle, glare, radiant, gleam, luminesce, reflect, glitter, flash, glow, glisten, flare, flicker, shimmer, twinkle, reflect, dazzle ……….shine ………or should that be………….shrine.

The owner of this gorgeous E-Type Jaguar must be proud of the sensual lines of this car to have given it such a buff and polish…… and such a beautiful blue. The only time a car of mine ever has a polish like this is the day before it gets sold.

  1. John, great picture, deep colours and the unusual angle works well to show off the body colour spoked wheels, bonnet louvres (?) and the interior. Overall a great composition.

    Is that a Morris Minor reflected in the paintwork? Shame, another Jag or an Aston would have been in keeping.

    • Hello Adrian. Thanks very much……..yes, a Morris Minor and there was a Lea Francis, a Ford Corsair and a fairly unique Rover, one of only two survivors that I’ve never ever seen before, amongst the many others. Looking through my photos I realise that although I got down low with many shots, they all would have been better photos if I had been almost at ground level………so maybe, next time.

  2. I just love the way the light catches the body work and the reflections.. Looks sort of metallic, I know it’s made of metal but it’s difficult to describe 🙂


    • Yes Stephen…..a bit like liquid metal or a flowing river…….beautiful design and apparently they used the Golden Ratio to design the E-Type…. 1: 1.618 ……. an application of the Fibonacci sequence.
