My god, a Cuba post with no bugs. Actually I think its a fine shot, I like it a lot. Very evocative of a bygone era and reminds me of my childhood holidays in the 50s, well spotted. IW.

Re: It was an open and shut case.

I like the period theme. That, said, the bottom case is a dead ringer for the one my wife uses to store her prints.

Nowhere near Cuba, unfortunately! In the car park at NT Packwood House on Monday.

I'm glad you were tempted to comment, keep it up!

Re: It was an open and shut case.

I wonder how many thousands of gallons of green paint they had to use up when they were building Austin 7s and Moggie Minors. Anyone would think you were supposed to think it was a Blower Bentley in British Racing Green.

There's been a few cameras finished in green paint over the years.

Edited. Plus some tripods and fast telephotos.
