I have a digital camera in my car 24/7. Not only to snap things of interest but it is also terribly useful if you should have an accident (*).

But, forget the accident thing for a bit. For those of us who keep a digital in our SLKs it would be fun to start a thread with photos of unusual things we see from our cars. I am sure we could create a fun library of road sites and events.

This morning I saw a motorbike sporting a wreath almost the size of the machine it was on. OK, not terribly interesting, but it's a start. Anyone want to join?


(*) Recording the extent of damage, etc.

Yes, I do carry a camera with me 24/7. Its my Sony Ericsson K800i 3.2 mega pixel mobile phone.

Corcksrew I think this would be a great thread with many interesting sightings.

That's great....now there are 3 of us. Remember, it doesn't have to be anything spectacular. Just something of some interest. Let's the three of us (and anyone else who wants to join) start by keeping our digitals handy the next time we are behind the wheel. Maybe we see a really pretty girl putting on her make-up at a red light...or a grossly overloaded truck..or a stupid sign...or whatever. Hey, it could also be a beautiful bit of roadside scenery. Go for it!

Piturs, sounds good but member one thing, piturs can be used as evidence. Honest huny, I don't know how her pitur got in this camera. It must have went off on its own. What 22 year old blond drivin a convertible and smilin at the camera. I mounted a video cam in the car for couple months, recorded some real idiot driving moves, used one to support reckless driving complaint against one idiot. Lost interest when the cam was full of stupid drivers and it just depressed me seeong how dangerous it was for me to try to get to work. Will take some pics of things unique to Norf Carliner and post for ur enjoyment. :biglaugh: :biglaugh: :tu:

I know I set the 'rules' about pix outside of the car.......but, can I make a little exception...just once....for my wife's cousin who rides in our S every once in a while?

So, should the 'contest' be in, out and on the car.?

Oh, well, I had envisioned shots taken through the window.....but, I guess we can do whatever in this first week.

But, let us next week use shots actually taken from inside the car of interesting bits outside the car.

Whatever, let's make this FUN!

That's actually a really good idea! I always have a camera in my car!!

I've taken random snaps here and there of things I've seen that were out of the ordinary. Unfortunately most were on my phone and I can't extract it because my bluetooth usb chip broke.

I'll add pics when I find some...gonna do a quick search through my hard drives... :) Good idea!

Don't carry a digicam with me but recently got a free upgrade to a phone that has a 1.3 meg camera built in so I'll see if there's anything worth taking, I don't have a usb cord so it's gonna be hard to upload pics here.

OK I found some!!


I was heading southbound when I saw out of the freeway onramp a LINE OF CARS coming towards me. I repeat, that is the ONRAMP and they are heading in MY direction. As you can see on the right, it is supposed to be closed off so that I can't get on the freeway, but cars seem to be escaping the freeway through that onramp. It scared the crap out of me because it felt like a scene from a movie...like Independence Day. I thought there were aliens on the freeway, or there was a bomb or something. You can see one car in the middle of the pic on the grass trying to get back onto the main road. It was weird!


"Why did the geese cross the road?"


Alright so maybe I didn't find this one on the road, but it still seems fitting for this thread! ;)


Ok maybe I planned this one...


Wasn't sure if it was the same ///AMG that we know of...
