This is my sideways look at the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Fake.
I had a couple of ideas for the challenge but that changed when walking down High Street in Southampton, Ontario on Saturday morning. I had spotted the Porsche SUV when the driver of the red convertible also spotted it and pulled an illegal U turn so that he could park next to it.
I expect anyone reading this is wondering what’s fake about any of this. Well, firstly, I had already photographed the Porsche for the challenge before the convertible arrived. Because real Porsches have two doors and are low to the ground so anything else is fake. Secondly, any convertible is disqualified from being a sports car due in part to structural rigidity and in part for safety reasons.
So there we have it, two fake sports cars on Saturday morning. I saw the cyclist approaching and waited for him to pass the cars. When he looked at the Porsche I took the shot.
