Bumper Stickers Gone Wild

At the red light, waiting to go into the Liberty Tunnel.                         I blurred the numbers on the license plate.

Bumper stickers have been around a long time but I haven’t seen them on too many cars lately. Until I drove home from school.

  1. I’ve never been a fan of bumper stickers and never have had any on my cars. The last thing I want to do is to provide a distraction to drivers approaching my car’s tail at high speeds.

    For a bumper sticker collection I was expecting an older, low end model car. I would like to know the story that goes with this guy or gal.

    No bumper stickers for me, only car magnets.

    I’m not a fan of bumper stickers, but I have a favorite example. It was an aging Honda Accord being driven in morning rush hour traffic by an aging baby boomer. The bumper sticker proudly proclaimed: “Born to be Wild.”

    There’s a car here in Omaha that is completely covered with bumper stickers – the entire car. It’s a teacher at the elementary school. A Prius. All the bumper stickers promote peace and harmony. One day I’ll have to snap a pic to send to you.

    I haven’t seen a lot of bumper stickers lately. That’s a great photo.

  7. Great capture, Ruth, but those stickers really spoil the look of the car’s rear end.:)

  8. Such a fun shot. You don’t see that many bumper stickers anymore….Remember the 70s…..

  9. Cool shot. But I have to agree with AD, they do ruin the look of that lovely car:-)

  10. That’s a lot of stickers! How did you blur the license plate info? (Just curious, as I do this often on my blogs – and wanted to know if perhaps you had an easy method of doing it…)

    • I did it in Aperture on Mac. Just did a retouch to break it up and blur it so it wasn’t legible.
