It’s all white down the road

Life in Colour June: White or Silver

It is about time you saw some of the other things I find to post just so you know I am not just a nature bushboy with birds, insects, animals and trees.

This idea came to me driving to my besties place. This is the result of a couple of days on the road.

and a silver one

  1. Another Australian blogging friend, sadly now deceased told me that White was an old fashioned colour for transport and no longer popular in Australia. Seems like he was wrong!
    I love white cars, and just as well because my latest is mostly white. πŸ™‚

      1. You were right by the way when you pointed out that the Toyota CHR was not downsizing. Number three daughter and son-in-law said the same thing.

        I had a rethink of my criteria and eventually, I went for the new model Nissan Juke, the size is just perfect, it’s bigger than the previous Juke but not as big as my RAV 4. White with a black roof. πŸ™‚

      2. I’ve driven out deeper into the Yorkshire Dales, uphill and down dale as it were and with all the twists and turns that accompany country lanes. I was surprised at how well it coped with the hills. It has a turbo charged 1 L engine, the RAV had a 2.2 L engine. So I wasn’t expecting miracles but it didn’t let me down, it did well.

        It’s very comfortable with good back support and it’s higher of the ground so excellent for my bad back. πŸ‘ŒπŸ™‚

      3. That’s fantastic Sue. Can’t imagine you as a fast driver and scooting up the hills. Those narrow lanes would worry me.
        Comfort is very important for “people our age” πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

      4. I hate to admit it but my driving has slowed down a lot in-recent years.

        I live on a narrow lane, so you get used to driving on narrow ones, however, there are some lanes where you just pray you don’t meet a car coming the opposite way!

        You’re right about age and comfort, though not sure when I reached the stage when back support became my priority! πŸ˜‚

      5. What do you do if there is a car coming the opposite way on a narrow lane? Is there room to pass? Tourists lost in big campervans would be a worry πŸ™‚

      6. There are signposts if the lanes are narrow. My lane has a sign telling heavy good vehicles to avoid it but it doesn’t appear to deter those drivers who’d rather take a shortcut to the village and avoid queuing
        at the traffic lights further along the main road. The top of my driveway is a popular passing point because it’s wider.
        When I get my dashcam refitted in this car I’ll make a point of driving on narrow lanes and get some clips.

  2. Definitely not nature! That’s one undulating roadway there BB. And I love the last silver tanker, looks brand new! White vehicles are easy pickings in hot countries. Need to reflect that heat!

    1. Thanks Jude. That is a milk tanker that goes to the farms and collects the milk to take to the factory. Despite driving on country roads and dirt tracks it always gets a good wash down.
      Lots of whites to find in a couple of days taking photos πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  3. It’s funny that you mentioned about not only photographing nature. That would be me as well and I’ve been trying to insert some photos that aren’t nature also. I especially enjoyed the first shot which was hopefully taken while you weren’t the driver. πŸ™‚

    1. Yes it was. It is a long road and and can see for ages I just stopped for a sec took a couple of shots and went. All the way, about 100kms, there wasn’t a vehicle behind me and only about twenty coming the other way. Drive that road all the time, See the car in the distance going the other way, he’s about 1km away πŸ™‚
