Fancy Bonnet

If I remember correctly from my time in the UK a bonnet is a car hood, always thought it sounded better.

I LOVE that! And I agree!

Awesome shot, Dianne. It's so crisp and clean!

Reminds me of my fathers white Cadillac!

Have a great Friday, dear lady!

Nothing wrong with your memory, it is indeed a bonnet. And the back (trunk?) is the boot.

Have a lovely weekend x

I thought that was a Cadillac emblem! It makes a good reflection!

Cool reflection, Dianne. I think you are right that the hood is a bonnet and the trunk is a boot. :)

Great reflection and yes us Brits call it a bonnet. :0) I've lived so long in the US now that I can't even remember what's British and what's American most of the time.

That is a really cool reflection! I'm going to keep my eyes open for similar ones. :)

Jeanette said...

Love the car emblem reflection shot. Great eye to catch that. Thanks for sharing!

Daryl said...

Good eye, good catch .. I am so not a car person, is this a Caddy?

NIce bonnet! I kept a list of all of the terms that were different when we were in London -- and like you I always thought they sounded better than the American English version!
