I love the fact that it was taken a few months after I was born.

Take me to your leader!

A visitor from United States posted Thu December 17, 2009:
It would be cool to see that same location in a current picture.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu December 3, 2009:
Absolutely stunning! A wonderfully shot image and a very original idea. Beautiful work.

Nice picture!! Well done.

A visitor from United States posted Tue July 1, 2008:
Everyone says "I like the old cars!" Well they arent old. They were the cars of that time.

A visitor from Germany posted Mon June 16, 2008:
Amazing shot! Such a good Idea. The retro cars fit quiet well into the scene

A visitor from Ireland posted Thu June 5, 2008:
Very atmospheric, hard to believe it was taken over 25 years ago. I like the selection of old cars, unusually none American (I think); MKII Toyota Celica, Datsun, Mk I VW Golf

A visitor from United States posted Wed April 9, 2008:
This looks like a scene out of the movie "Blue Thunder" This is a fantastic image!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon April 7, 2008:

A visitor from United States posted Thu September 20, 2007:
It's a great shot because it catches your imagination of all the things that are going on but we rarely are able to see it. Thanks!!

A visitor from United States posted Tue September 18, 2007:
The lighting in this shot is reminiscent of a fairground. like a holiday. not christmas... though that would be the easy assumption with the colors unvailed. I'd say more halloween. remember when all makes of cars were different, and not pressed out of a mold. the red car looks like candy and weights the right side of the shot down...down in a good way for sure. great shot. great scott!

A visitor from Canada posted Tue September 18, 2007:
It's like a neighbourhood halo! Awesome photo.

A visitor from United States posted Tue September 18, 2007:
Made me dizzy.....

A visitor from United States posted Fri July 6, 2007:
Psychochopper! Insanity - the very definition means doing the same thing over and over again. And this guy keeps swirling 'round N 'round.

A visitor from - posted Sat June 16, 2007:
Its very imaginative, so simple, but what great effect. I've seen night sky photography done like this, but this has been so beautifully adapted to avaiation photography

A visitor from Belgium posted Wed May 23, 2007:
Its great to see an imaginitive photo like this well done

A visitor from Philippines posted Mon May 21, 2007:
Amazing photograph. The circle in the sky boggles the mind as to what it really is. It somewhat does remind me of a U.F.O. due to the fact that the photo was taken at night. This shot deserves more than 5 stars. :)

A visitor from Hungary posted Tue May 8, 2007:
It looks like a glory has fallen down from heaven. Amazing result!

A visitor from Germany posted Wed April 11, 2007:
I must remember Steven Spielberg's movie from 1977: "Close encounter of the third kind." The cars make the original atmosphere. Superb!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon April 2, 2007:
Excellent photo mate good use of your camera

Clever and very effective. Almost terestrial in an urban way.

A visitor from Costa Rica posted Tue October 17, 2006:

A visitor from Germany posted Wed September 27, 2006:
