Sometimes cool pictures are made out of sheer boredom and sometimes you run across something just plain weird. This was a combination of both. I stopped off at the HEB on S. Congress Ave, which is my grocery store while at work, for a salad and cold drink when I pulled up next to this ancient Mercedes and could not help but laugh. I made this snapshot using my iPhone camera and the Camera Bag application to turn it into a Helga-type photograph. There was something about the harsh mid-day light and shiny hood that made it look more interesting than most camera phone pictures I take. And for a real treat shop at the store, its a great mix of folks.
